Since April 2018, I am a United Nations Online Volunteer. Specifically, I volunteer for an environmental organization based in India, the Universal Versatile Society (UVS).
About UN Online Volunteer
The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. Online volunteering allows organizations and volunteers to team up to address sustainable development challenges – anywhere in the world, from any device. Online volunteering is fast, easy – and most of all, effective. When skilled, passionate individuals join forces online with great organizations working toward sustainable development goals, everyone wins.
UVS is a non-political, non-communal and nonprofit making, non-governmental voluntary social organization that is registered in India. Their contribution to poverty alleviation, education, agriculture and rural development has been remarked by International Organizations like International Poverty Center, United Nations Online Volunteering, PLAN International, Leipzig University Germany, GTZ Cooperation, United Nations Environment Program TUNZA, Climate Reality Project, among others more.
Their latest project, the World Climate Change News, aims to present to people the latest weekly news on climate change. Starting April 2018, I have been given the chance to be one of their four News Editors.
