Effective Volunteer Recognition
Volunteerism makes a significant contribution to the economic, social and cultural development of our country and a large percentage of such volunteerism stems from individual volunteer efforts. Sri Lanka hosts many community volunteers that selflessly work towards the betterment of society, often best described as ‘unsung heroes’ of their communities. This calls for a need for the recognition of volunteer efforts on a national level to encourage and motivate volunteerism. Hence, it is of utmost importance that the National Action Plan includes a systematic approach to the recognition of the Nation’s Volunteers.
