Volunteering enhances social solidarity and cohesion, positively affects individuals, families and the community, and is a reflection of progressive and civilised societies. It develops citizens’ sense of social responsibility, and helps individuals unleash their talents by participating in positive activities that have an everlasting positive impact on society.

Volunteers are a vital national resource– be they drawn from the private or public sectors. Society can benefit limitlessly from the experience and qualifications they bring to community, regional and international initiatives and projects.

The growing voluntary sector in the UAE is gaining in importance and has built steadily, in parallel with the UAE itself, over the past few years. In accordance, there is now an increasing need to involve volunteers in activities, programmes, initiatives and campaigns that support humane, environmental and social issues.
