December 5th, International Volunteers Day – Together We Can Through Volunteering

On the occasion of International Volunteers Day (IVD 2020), the FSL India team would like to thank volunteers across the world, and celebrate their commitment in creating a better tomorrow for all.

We’d like to share a few pictures of our National and International volunteers who’ve participated in our programs over the years. They deserve our heartfelt gratitude.

“Together We Can Through Volunteering” is the focus of IVD this year. As the world gradually recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, volunteers will have a key role to play in accelerating the transition to green, inclusive and just economies.

We couldn’t agree more with this message for 2020 from António Guterres – the UN Secretary General:

“ …. That is why, on International Volunteer Day, I appeal to all governments to promote volunteering, support volunteer efforts and recognize volunteer contributions to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.”

2020 is also the 100th year of the International Voluntary Services (IVS) movement, and Volunteering has become a vehicle for non-formal education, promoting Global Competencies and Social Leadership among youth which is essential in building a more just and peaceful world. FSL India has been actively promoting Volunteering and International Voluntary Services (IVS) since 2000, and we will continue to work towards our goal of developing youth for a Regenerative World.

“Services to others is the rent you pay for your room here on the earth.” – Muhammad Ali

We’d like to end this post with a poem that sums it up best:

It’s not for the money, it’s not for fame
and it’s not for any personal gain.
It’s for love of fellow man,
It’s just to lend a helping hand.
It’s just to give the tithe of self.
That’s something you can’t buy with wealth.
It’s not the medals worn with pride.
It’s just for that feeling deep inside.
It’s that reward down in your heart.
It’s the feeling that you’ve been a part
Of helping others far and near,
That makes you a VOLUNTEER.

  26. After that, the term “spoiler” started to take root in common culture.
    Due in no small part to cable information, the distance between right and left
    in American culture has grown. Alfred Hitchcock would’ve authorised of at present’s spoiler-warning-joyful media tradition. Slots and impressions in internet
    publishers’ properties as effectively advert slots in Tv, radio, newsprint and different traditional media are in 100’s of hundreds of thousands and extra.
    And then, reasonably than simply tossing each into an everyday field or bin, try utilizing previous wine or liquor boxes — they’re typically partitioned into 12
    or more slots. For the Fourth of July, attempt pasting pictures of stars or the American flag in the middle.
    The same old invocation of the first Amendment aside, you’d must be able to
    show that you actually, actually suffered in a roundabout way, and plot
    disclosure simply does not meet the necessary legal requirements,
    as a result of, as everyone knows, the American justice system is deeply flawed.
    Some of the stories were spoiled with prefaces that gave away plot twists, and
    a few were fully unspoiled. They gathered said youths and gave
    them some short stories to read.

  27. A well-balanced way of living entails both option and also action. The options you create every day, and the actions you handle those selections, can lead to a more healthy way of life.

  29. Long earlier than any of the opposite apps on this listing, Zagat guides in print have been a trusted supply for
    finding an amazing restaurant, especially for individuals
    who journey. There’s only one individual I can consider who possesses a singular combination of patriotism,
    intellect, likeability, and a proven observe document
    of getting stuff performed under powerful circumstances (snakes, Nazis,
    “bad dates”). But let’s go one step further beyond local food to road meals.
    And with this template, you can be one step forward of your opponents!

    A fantastic sport to go on adventures by your
    self, one I can simply advocate personally.
    The sport is free until gamers want to eliminate the persistent and lengthy advertisements that interrupt recreation play by paying for an advert-free membership.
    Amazon has greater than 140,000 titles in its lending library you could entry at no cost.
    That makes it much more like some type of D&D board
    recreation and i can not wait to strive that new function out myself.
    This is not Steam Remote Play, that is a native constructed-in sharing
    function and you can even purchase extra of those particular slots so others don’t
    have to buy the complete sport. That allows you to boost the
    storage capability of the system to 36 megabytes, greater than twice that of the fundamental iPad.

  30. One app gets visible that will help you select simply the best place to dine.
    London is also a superb proving floor for wheelchair athletes, with a
    $15,000 (about 9,500 pounds) purse to the primary place male and feminine finishers.
    The Xbox 360 is the primary machine to use this type of structure.
    Since this is Nintendo’s first HD console, most of the big modifications are on the inside.
    The username is locked to a single Wii U console, and every Wii U helps as much as 12 accounts.

    A traditional processor can run a single execution thread.
    That works out to more than eight million Americans in a single year
    — and people are just the people who realized they
    have been ID theft victims. If you want to access the total suite of apps
    obtainable to Android gadgets, you are out of luck
    — neither the Kindle Fire nor the Nook Tablet can access the full Android retailer.
    In my electronic e book, both the Nook Tablet and the Kindle Fire are
    good units, but weren’t exactly what I wanted.
    If you are a Netflix or Hulu Plus customer, you may
    download apps to entry those providers on a Kindle
    Fire as properly.
