"A volunteer is someone who serves in a community or for the benefit of natural environment primarily because they choose to do so. Many serve through a non-profit organization – sometimes referred to as formal volunteering, but a significant number also serve less formally, either individually or as part of a group. Because these informal volunteers are much harder to identify, they may not be included in research and statistics on volunteering.
By definition, a volunteer worker does not get paid or receive compensation for services rendered."
Volunteering is cultural. It’s sort of democracy, when someone participate in his community, serving the country, and working side by side with the governments, they share the responsibility as a citizen.
Volunteering can build better societies, make people love each other. Sharing common causes and interests, and filling the free time with useful activities. Volunteering make you an active part of the city, shaping it and participating in it’s development.
Unfortunately, I don’t see it active in our culture. Why? Can we start thinking about considering it as part of our culture?
How to volunteer?
We can start this campaign by creating a weekly list of volunteering opportunities in Jordan. Send us an e-mail and we will distribute it to the members and post it on regular basics. We can use this website www.volunteermatch.org
