General information about volunteer work
What is volunteer work?
Volunteering is a global activity. Voluntary human beings become active within their own community and strengthen the sense of participation, trust, cooperation, coordination, understanding, and the importance of duty and citizenship. Voluntary work was not a living and old activity. In this day and age, mutual respect and cooperation is an important human need, not a benevolent one. Volunteer work strengthens trust and relationships within the community
