IAVE 21st World Volunteer Conference Workshop 225: Global Partnership - Utilising many Skills for One Result
Volunteers need to develop partnerships at all level, from the smallest community to multinational companies and NPOs and be involved in various partnerships with local communities, government, foundations, international NGOs and big companies in supporting communities. Local partnerships are important and come in the form of working with key agencies in the government, schools and businesses. By understanding this, it helps nations to be more self-sustainable. Global partnership was created in response to the need for a better life in all parts of the world. Cocieties need public services to fulfill basic needs which include health, education and economic welfare. The spirit of partnership, both local and global, should be futher expanded to motivate, enpower and spur communities to work hand in hand in order to assist the marginalised humans in their struggle to live a better life.
The basic principle of Partnership is: Think Globally, Act Locally.
