Today we celebrate International Volunteer Day (IVD) as mandated by UN General Assembly Resolution A/RES/40/212 in December 1985.  Everyday, volunteers and organizations give their time and resources to promote peace and development in various communities around the world. This day give us an opportunity to acknowledge their efforts and bring recognition to the positive contributions that volunteerism brings to our societies.

“I extend my deepest gratitude to the more than 6,700 United Nations Volunteers, 12,000 United Nations Online Volunteers and the one billion community volunteers worldwide. You are all instrumental to the future of people and the planet. Your commitment and passion can act as inspiration to us all.” — UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon
