Volunteering – Inspiration in Action
All over the world more than 7,700 people volunteer and contribute to peace and development through the United Nations Volunteers Programme. UN Volunteers help to organize and run local and national elections and support a large number of peacekeeping and humanitarian projects. In this week’s In Focus we meet the head of the European Year of Volunteering John Mcdonald, two young volunteers speak about their experiences and we tell you how you can become a volunteer.
