iVolunteer along with AIESEC are hosting
a "Volunteer management workshop" on the 4th of December 04
Objective of the workshop:
• To build a volunteering perspective in organization working for different causes – Understanding and sharing the issues and practices
• Roadmap to effective Volunteer Management
The challenge of the development sector today lies in tapping onto quality human resource, utilizing their skills to the maximum and creating a motivating niche for individuals within NGOs.
Volunteers are a potent resource that NGOs can use to implement projects and create community participation in development issues. As we know 'volunteerism' in today's context is not just confined to students, housewives, youth, elderly or any other such groups. We now have individuals with management background working in corporate houses contributing their knowledge and experience to the development sector. It is important to work out how best we can utilize the skills and time of these individuals who are willing to volunteer and also how we can manage them.
iVolunteer with its trained staff having vast experience in handling volunteers in diff parts of India along with AIESEC who has years of experience handing international interns in the development sector aim to share and create a platform with ngo's regarding effective volunteer management practices .

Even as we're coming to the grasp of the horrifying devastation that the
tsunamis have left behind across 12 countries, the relief and rehabilitation
work for several millions of survivors has to be implemented soon. The effort
required to provide safe drinking water, food, medical treatment, shelter
and a livelihood to the victims will be the biggest ever to be undertaken
One of the important resources needed in this massive humanitarian assistance effort are volunteers. Volunteers from both local communities and outside have already begun joining hands with NGOs, local governments and other agencies to deliver relief to the survivors.
In our special coverage of the disaster on the World Volunteer Web, we provide a snapshot of what role volunteers are playing in the world's biggest relief and rehabilitation effort to date. These stories, taken from sources all over the world, again highlight the important contribution volunteers make in emergency humanitarian assistance.
You can also find out in our special coverage how you can help the tsunami victims through donations and voluntary work.

If you have any such stories or pictures of volunteers' work in the tsunami-affected areas, please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Dr. R. Ganapati
Leprosy Project welcomes needs volunteers to help this NGO, in office
correspondence, computer operations, office administration, fund raising
we regret not a single person turned up actually, to volunteer their
services. Such a gesture would have indeed been a service to the community
and to the poor leprosy patients. If this offer were to result in some
social minded persons coming to BLP and offering their services, it
would have meant real benefit to the leprosy patients.
The reasons for the failure could be that people are still afraid of leprosy patients and social stigma is strong even today preventing persons to work in a leprosy NGO. May be the society still needs awareness among the common people that leprosy is a disease like any other disease and it can be surely treated and cured. That it is not an infectious disease.
awareness, through publicity in press media, on television and publicity
in the community can prepare the people to mix freely with leprosy patients
without any stigma. May be situation may improve gradually over a period
until then BLP will have to carry on its services to leprosy patients
without the help of so many persons who are willing to volunteer but
not for Bombay
is an organisation that was concieved with the intention of providing assistance
to the Intellectually disabled or our “Special Friends” as we’d like to
call them, to self actualize and provide forums wherein they can redeem
their self-esteem – to be considered and consider themselves as contributing
members of Society.
