The International Volunteer Day (IVD) mandated by the United Nations’ General Assembly, was held on 5 December. IVD is acknowledge worldwide as a unique chance for volunteers and organizations to celebrate their efforts, to share their values, and to promote their work among their communities, NGOs, government authorities and the private sector.
The Iranian Cheetah Society (ICS) has been benefited from its volunteers throughout the past 15 years, and ICS volunteers significantly contribute in ICS’s conservation-oriented activities across Iran. In order to celebrate the IVD 2016, given this year’s theme #GlobalApplause (“give volunteers a hand”), ICS publishes the first edition of Guidelines for ICS Volunteers. This handbook intends to form a baseline for mutual interests of ICS and its volunteers, promoting long-lasting collaboration between ICS and its dedicated volunteers.
