International Volunteers’ Day Celebrations!

VOLindia recently partnered with VSO to celebrate International Volunteers' Day on 5th December. Our celebrations were a huge success and reached out to about 500-600 young people across various colleges in Delhi. VSO promoted their website www.getinvolved.org encouraging young people to volunteer and VOLindia promoted its upcoming winter “Serve 2009”.

We visited Rajdhani College on the 1st, Deshbandhu on the 2nd, Jamia on the 4th and Hansraj College on the 5th. It was also an occasion for all our old VOLindians to meet and all our stalls were driven by our ex volunteers.

We encouraged young people to participate in our programs and also asked them to write on our graffiti wall. Many young people voiced their opinion on volunteering and also wrote about the power of young people today.

All in all VOLindia spent an exciting week spreading the message of volunteering among the youth of Delhi. It was not only work but also lots of fun!
