Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity and is intended to promote goodness or improve human quality of life. In return, this activity can produce a feeling of self-worth and respect. There is no financial gain involved for the individual. Volunteering is also important for skill development, socialization, and self-satisfaction. Volunteering also helps get employment opportunities as it increases contacts with different important people. Many volunteers are specifically trained in the areas they work, such as medicine, education, or emergency rescue. Others serve need basis, such as in response to a natural disasters.
Every year SAWAB arranges several Volunteer Development Programs before implementing any project. This program is helping both SAWAB and the volunteers equally. SAWAB gets many trained volunteers to quickly implement its activities, on the other hand the volunteers get opportunities to work and gain new skills.
