What is UN Volunteers
The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is an organization that contributes towards peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. We work with partners to integrate qualified, highly motivated and well supported UN Volunteers into development programming while promoting the value of volunteerism, and recognizing its importance at a global level.
Volunteerism is a basic expression of human relationships. It is about a person’s need to participate in creating a difference and improving another person’s situation or improving communal conditions in their societies. People all over the world engage in volunteerism for a great variety of reasons: to help eliminate poverty, to improve basic health and education, to tackle environmental issues, to reduce the risk of disasters or to combat social exclusion and violent conflict. In all these areas, volunteerism makes a specific contribution by generating an environment of well-being for people and their communities.
Through volunteerism, UNV establishes an opportunity where volunteers can work in collaboration with the United Nations and its partners to create spaces for people to engage, acquire voice and make specific contributions that lead to countries attaining peace and development.
