International Volunteer Day

International Volunteer Day (IVD)- (December 5) is an international observance designated by the United Nations since 1985. It offers an opportunity for volunteer organizations and individual volunteers to make visible their contributions - at local, national and international levels - to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

The International Volunteer Day is marked by many non-governmental organizations, including MIJARC and others. It is also marked and supported by United Nations Volunteers.

Apart from mobilizing thousands of volunteers every year, works closely with partners and governments to establish national volunteer programmers to create structures that foster and sustain local volunteerism in countries. The volunteers can take action for sustainable human development by supporting the activities of development organizations over the Internet.

The main focus of IVD 2014 is not only celebrate volunteerism in all its facets – but also pay special tribute to people’s participation in making a difference locally, nationally and globally. IVD 2014 highlights the contribution of volunteers in engaging people from the grass-roots in decision-making processes, ultimately creating space for participation that leads to: stronger governance, social cohesion, peace and sustainable development.


"Founded on the values of solidarity and mutual trust, volunteerism transcends all cultural, linguistic and geographic boundaries. By giving their time and skills without expectation of material reward, volunteers themselves are uplifted by a singular sense of purpose."
