What is UNV?

The United Nations Volunteers programme (UNV) is the volunteer arm of the United Nations. Created by the UN General Assembly in 1970 to serve as an operational partner in development cooperation at the request of UN member states, it mobilizes qualified UN Volunteers and encourages people to become active in volunteering in their countries. It is administered by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and works through UNDP's country offices around the world.

Who are the UN Volunteers?

Some 7,000 qualified and experienced women and men of nearly 160 nationalities serving each year in developing countries as UN Volunteers. Since 1971, some 30,000 UN Volunteers have worked in about 140 countries. Currently, nearly 70 per cent are citizens of developing countries while the remaining 30 per cent come from the industrialized world.

Where are they working?

Over the years, they have served in about 140 countries. Today 40 per cent are at work in Africa, 26 per cent in Asia and the Pacific, and 15 per cent in Central and Eastern Europe; the remainder are to be found in the Arab States, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. Thirty per cent serve in the world's poorest nations -- the least developed.

지지난 연말에 베트남 UNDP 프로젝트 중에 MARD(베트남 농림부) 에서 봉사하고 왔다. 무엇보다 인상적이 었던 점은, 은퇴후 나이 지긋한 두 분이 연금으로 생활하며 봉사하면서 세계 여행한다는 것. 내가 꿈꾸는 꽤 멋진 삶이다.
