About International Volunteer Day for Economic and Social Development
On 5th December, International Volunteer Day for Economic and Social Development is celebrated every year. It is a global recognition assigned by the United Nations since 1985. It offers an open door for volunteer associations and individual volunteers to make their commitments obvious – at nearby, national and worldwide levels – to the accomplishment of the Millennium Development Goals MDGs.
The International Volunteer Day is also recognized by some private organizations such as Red Cross, scouts and others. It is additionally checked and helped by United Nations Volunteers. International Volunteer Day is a possibility for individual volunteers, groups and associations to elevate their commitments to improvement at the neighborhood, national and worldwide levels.
