39 volunteers from across the country have been oriented into the KidzCan Zimbabwe volunteer program in a move that shows programming for 2023 has already gathered momentum.
The two sessions, one in Harare and another in the second largest city of Bulawayo saw 26 and 13 volunteers respectively, being inducted into the work of KidzCan and childhood cancer.
From inception, volunteers have been at the core of KidzCan’s activities and go far in ensuring that Team KidzCan programs are executed efficiently with the excellence that the organization has come to be known for.
Speaking at the induction session KidzCan Executive Director Daniel Mckenzie welcomed the volunteers and applauded them for taking a hearty decision that fulfills their inner being as they join a team that makes a difference in the world of childhood cancer.
“We thank you for committing time to attend a session that will save lives.
Life is about choices and we commend you for it,” said Mckenzie. Volunteering calls people to participate in their community and be important to others and is founded on such values as ubuntu, solidarity, and mutual trust.
KidzCan values volunteers and always looks for individuals who are passionate, reliable, team players, and compassionate. This ensures they become valuable assets to the team.
The benefits of volunteering are so many, it can help one gain confidence by providing the chance to try something new and build a real sense of achievement. As one makes a difference in the community, they also get to create new connections and learn diverse skills.
In fact, it is always warm to be around people who share the same passion.
The two volunteer training sessions have come in time for the International Day of Volunteers, celebrated on the 5th of December the world over.
The International Day of Volunteers (1985), provides an opportunity for volunteers and organizations to celebrate their efforts, share their values, and promote their work among communities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), UN agencies, government authorities, and the private sector.
