    5th December is the International Volunteer Day ! 🌍🌎
 It is an international observance designated by the United Nations since 1985 and it is viewed as a unique chance for volunteers and organizations to celebrate their efforts, to share their values, and to promote their work among their communities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), United Nations agencies, government authorities and the private sector. 

Volunteer community in Kalamáta, represented by Local Volunteers from Kentro Neon Kalamatas + European Voluntary Service (EVS) volunteers + ACT volunteers celebrated the International Volunteering Week (5-8 Dec 2017) with several actions which aimed to bring awarеness among the local people about volunteerism. A daily info pint was set up on Othomos square where passers-by could learn more about different volunteering opportunities in local and international scale. Volunteers were sharing impressions from first hand about advantages of volunteering. A Christmas tree from recycled metal cans has been created in front of walker's eyes by creative and eco-friendly EVS-ers. The closing event took place on the main street in Kalamata - Aristomenous, where a touching performance of Sign Language was the occasion for volunteers and passers-by to exchange good mood.
