Volunteer Fest was held in various cities
across Ukraine to mark
International Volunteer Day.

Organizers of the Volunteer Fest, UN Volunteers programme,

adriving force of change in the
country. The volunteer movement can also contribute to economic growth and
positively affect the
development of civil society.
Despite the importance of volunteering, a 2016 study
conducted by the United Nations and the Ministry ofYouth and Sports of Ukraine found that
only 13.4 % of young people in Ukraine have volunteered at leastonce in their life. According to the 2017
CAF index of volunteering, Ukraine was ranked 83rd among 139countries. Although it is 7 grades higher
than in the previous year, many Ukrainians are still not fully awareof what volunteering means, its benefits,
or how to get involved.
During the Volunteer Fest, Ukrainians had the opportunity to learn how
volunteering can help themtake
part in civic engagement. By volunteering, everyone can influence the development
of their community,help others, gain valuable
