The NGO Cafe endorses the IYV-2001

The 52nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly approved by consensus on November 20, 1997 a proposal by the Government of Japan and 122 other Member States that the year 2001 be proclaimed the International Year of Volunteers.

With its main objectives of increased recognition, facilitation, networking and promotion of volunteering, the International Year of Volunteers 2001 (IYV) provides a unique opportunity to highlight the achievements of the millions of volunteers worldwide and to encourage more people globally to engage in volunteer activity.
