Description
UN VOLUNTEERS HELP THE WORLD

Since 1971, more than 20,000 UN Volunteers have made a tangible contribution to the efforts of the United Nations and the initiatives of governments and community groups. The varied skills are showcased in how they serve - as specialists sharing their expertise to advance development, as field workers bringing intimate understanding of local concerns to fight poverty, as short-term managerial experts advising on how to generate income and create jobs. In this edition of World Chronicle, Sharon Capeling-Alakija, Executive Coordinator of the United Nations Volunteers, talks about the International Year of Volunteers, to be celebrated worldwide in 2001.
