Teams to end poverty


United Nations Volunteers Programme:

The United Nations Volunteers programme (UNV) is the UN programme that supports human development globally by promoting volunteerism and by mobilizing volunteers.

It is administered by UNDP and operates amidst growing recognition that volunteerism makes important contributions, economically and socially, to more cohesive societies by building trust and reciprocity among citizens. Every year some 5,000 UN Volunteers from more than 150 different nationalities actively support the programmes of the United Nations itself and almost all UN funds, programmes and specialized agencies.
