An overview of UNDP supported volunteering opportunities around the world - sign up in your country now!

 

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the UN’s largest development agency, hopes to highlight stories from all levels of society, including the poorest nations on earth. UNDP is celebrating the power of generosity and giving that is not necessarily the giving of funds, but rather the giving of time and knowledge through volunteerism and community work. The message is, “You do not have to be a rich to give; even the millions of people living on less then one dollar per day give every day in some form, and that deserves celebrating.”

Helen Clark, administrator of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), said, “I think the democratization of giving really invigorates people to think, ‘Yes I could make a difference. I could urge others to make a difference. I can demand that government make a difference.’ We want to encourage people to get engaged and to give back; it does not have to be money – it can be engagement or advocacy, raising your voice, or offering your time and expertise.”
