Declare October 2 as National Volunteering Day

    1. Petition by

      India@75 Peoples Agenda

      India

The father of our nation Mahatma Gandhi believed that India can realize her utmost potential and be steered towards non-violent social change by creating platforms, which enable participation and collective action and allow for wide spread involvement in volunteerism and public service.

Volunteerism is a powerful means of engaging people in tackling development challenges, and it can transform the pace and nature of development.

Volunteerism benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer by strengthening trust, solidarity and reciprocity among citizens.
It purposefully creates opportunities for participation for greater good and brings forth recognition for unity in diversity and the values that sustain our nation’s founding principles: Justice, Liberty, Equality and Fraternity.

It is with these ethos that we appeal to the Honorable President of India to declare 2nd October as India’s National Volunteering Day.
