UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for recognition of volunteers, working with partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing an increasing number of volunteers throughout the world. UNV embraces volunteerism as universal and inclusive, and recognizes volunteerism in its diversity as well as the values that sustain it: free will, commitment, engagement and solidarity. The UNV Programme in Kyrgyzstan commenced its activities in 1996.
"Given the chance, youth bring enthusiastic insight and energy to the challenges of development. As volunteers, young adults are engaged actors in their own development and agents of change within their communities."
