While, a volunteer is defined as ‘a person who freely offers to take part in an organization or undertake a task’ or ‘a person who works for an organization without monetary benefits’, we instantly relate the word “Volunteer” to someone with the potential to offer selflessly. Volunteers working for Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) are most important for the society as they ensure the well-being of those in need.A volunteer provides service willingly, without expecting anything in return for his or her actions. They consciously work for a cause that they believe in, to do good for the society.
