International Volunteer Day

December 5, 2018

International Volunteer Day (IVD) 2018, “Volunteers build Resilient Communities”, recognizes volunteers worldwide – with a special focus on local community volunteers – who contribute to making their communities more resilient against natural disasters, economic stresses and political shocks. The campaign theme combines the recognition of volunteers with concrete evidence from the State of the World's Volunteerism Report (SWVR) 2018.

#IVD2018 focuses on the values of volunteerism through the appreciation of local volunteers, including the marginalized groups and women, who make up nearly 60 percent of volunteers worldwide, and their impact on building #ResilientCommunities.
