Volunteering is the practice of people working on behalf of others without being motivated by financial or material gain.
The objective of the program is to give detail information about the project, briefly discus with Government stakeholders, to give recognition and appreciation, to build self-esteem and confidence for those volunteers who were supporting the organization, to welcome new volunteers those who want to join for future and to build positive relationship with stakeholders for future.
When volunteers feel appreciated they are more likely to feel connected to the program and continue their involvement.
