The government says volunteers are key in Zambia’s quest to attain the Sustainable Development Goals and poverty reduction.

Minister of Community Development and Social Services, Doreen Mwamba says the contribution of volunteers to national development is critical including areas such as social protection, health and education sectors.

And United Nations(UN) Resident Coordinator, Beatrice Mutali disclosed that over eight thousand volunteers work in 40 entities across the world.

Ms Mutali commended Government for the launch of the policy saying it is a clear demonstration that the current administration is concerned about the welfare of volunteers.

The launch of policy has coincided with the commemoration of the International Volunteer Day.
