Jordan - IVD events

More than 70 volunteers, including local volunteers and international online volunteers, have been mobilized to prepare for IVD 2008 celebrations.

Through the Boy and Girl Scouts network in Amman, a concert will be offered by an orchestra playing traditional instruments. There will be a volunteer fair after the concert, where more than 20 volunteer involving organizations will introduce volunteering opportunities to the general public.

All citizens in Jordan will have access to the IVD celebrations through the awareness raising sessions on volunteerism, which will be held at Ministry of Social Development centres and at Ministry of Health centres in all Governorates.
