"Volunteering" is contagious in a positive way according to a representative from a Kenya based organisation, who attended a UN-supported conference on volunteering, recently held in Mexico.

According to the UN, more than one billion people globally offer their time and experience for free every year.

Volunteerism is seen as a powerful means of tackling development challenges across the world.
