Mosul, Iraq – (April 13, 2022),
Rwanga Foundation announced the annual 'Youth Volunteers Initiative' project in
a press conference for the fifth year in a row. Voluntary groups can now apply
their project proposals.
Voluntary work is
generally considered an altruistic activity where an individual or a group of
people provide services for no personal or financial gain but merely for the
benefit of the public.
However, volunteers usually need some support, including financial but not
salaries, to cover the cost of necessary tools, materials and equipment to make
the project happen.
Therefore, Rwanga Foundation is launching the project of ‘Youth Volunteers
Initiative’, which is to urge the female and male youth to come up with project
proposals and participate in a competition to be funded and supported to
implement their projects for the best benefit of the public.
