Global Aid Direct Volunteers Program is inspired by the conviction that volunteering is a powerful means of engaging people in tackling development challenges worldwide. Everyone can contribute their time, skills and knowledge through volunteer action and their combined efforts can be a significant force for achieving development challenges.
The concept of volunteering for development centers on enhancing the impact on development. Achieving this requires the cooperation and commitment of the public sector, civil society and the private sector with support from the world community. Individual citizens also have an important role to play through volunteering.
Volunteering for development enhances the capacity of people to exercise choices to set and achieve their own development objectives, which can result in real improvements that benefit others as well as themselves. If development is to be effective and sustainable, the people affected by it must take ownership of, and give relevance to, its processes and drive them forward through civic engagement.
Volunteering strengthens—and is strengthened by—trust, solidarity and reciprocity among citizens, and it can transform the nature of development. Volunteering is purposeful, creating opportunities for citizens to participate in development. Through volunteering, more people participate in development, and at all levels of society, which empowers them and gives them a personal stake in their country’s future. In this way, volunteering fosters secure and stable environments conducive to the peaceful resolution of conflict.
