Volunteering Award Ceremony:
Volunteering is one of the best ways some positive changes are happening in the society. Volunteers actively participate and put their best efforts to bring about social development. They don’t do this to serve any self-interest, but it’s just a vision of a better tomorrow that acts as a driving force for them. To give them their due recognition, iVolunteer has created a platform that recognises their devotion and uninterrupted commitment towards building a better society for all. iVolunteer is a social enterprise that promotes volunteering. Their mission is to bring volunteers and organisations together to share time, skills and passion for promoting India’s social development.
