International Volunteers Day will be celebrated on Monday, 5 December 2005 from 2:30 to 5:30 pm at Conference Room 1, UN Gigiri complex.
This year’s theme for the IVD in Kenya will be “Volunteering to promote awareness and achievement of the MDGs in the community”.
The theme was selected based on the need to increase local knowledge about the MDGs and engage the community in volunteer activities to achieve the MDGs. A core team composed by representatives from Volunteer Service Overseas (VSO/Jitolee), the Japanese International Cooperation, NGO Council, KARA, UFADHILI and Kakamua and with the leadership of the UNV Kenya have been consulting in this regard.
