National Volunteer Week, “Săptămânii Naționale a Voluntariatului 2017”

The first week of October was “Săptămânii Naționale a Voluntariatului 2017” in Moldova. Unity Community Center organized several volunteer activities to involve the youth of the community. Younger children cleaned the streets by the local school; middle school children helped clean up the yard of the museum and the garden at the home of the oldest villager (97 years old). We ended the activities by celebrating volunteering with drawing in the streets and making a poster about the activities to share with the school. While volunteering is a concept that is just getting traction in Moldova, Unity Community Center has been fostering the idea for years and is able to easily mobilize the youth. Really amazing work!
