Volunteers: they make a difference everywhere !

Worldwide, billions of citizens are giving their time, talent, and energy to build strong communities, solve problems, and fight for safety, opportunity, and justice for all people.

All this volunteering is often taken for granted, so we don’t always realize the significance of their contribution to societies.

The huge contribution of volunteering to the economy, and especially to the social capital of societies, is invisible and one of the aims of the International Year of Volunteers 2001 is to change this. Volunteers and their organizations should be visible

to the world of governments, business, media, education, and research. Only then volunteers can get the recognition and support they need and deserve.

Volunteering worldwide makes a major contribution to this goal. The profiles of volunteering in 21 countries show us the diversity of volunteering, the cultural embedding of it, and most of all, the way in which volunteers make a difference: everywhere!

The Netherlands Institute of Care and Welfare / NIZW, the Verwey-Jonker Instituut, and Community Partnership Consultants have given inspired leadership to this work. They have led the research effort, recruited and coached the authors, edited drafts, translated Dutch, English, and other languages in which drafts were prepared. Special thanks go to Margriet-Marie Govaart, Henk-Jan van Daal, and Angelika Münz for their leadership. They have added greatly to the development of a global literature on volunteering.

IAVE, the International Association for Volunteer Effort, is particularly proud that members of its worldwide network contributed directly to many of the profiles – from providing background information, reviewing drafts prepared by others to actually authoring profiles. It is a reflection of the strength of the IAVE network that they could make such a contribution.

This publication is a first step to increase the visibility of volunteering worldwide: it is a good start of a process that should continue beyond the International Year of Volunteers.

Volunteering is the fundamental building block of civil society. Without people who are willing to be involved in their community, there are no NGO’s, no philanthropy, no responsible governments, no democracies.

This book will help you understand this, and even more important: it will challenge you to build support for volunteers.
