Participants share their knowledge and skills, broaden peer networks and gain international exposure and experience within the United Nations system.
The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. In 2016, UNV deployed 6,590 UN Volunteers in 126 countries.
