United Nations Volunteers Statement

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

It was created by the UN General Assembly in 1970 and has been administered since by UNDP. It is operating among growing recognition that volunteerism makes important contributions, economically and socially, to more cohesive societies by building trust and reciprocity among citizens.

Since 1990, the UNV Viet Nam programme has been working to increase the involvement of UNV Volunteers and other volunteers in a wide range of development activities that contribute to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals in the country.
