Inspiration in Action
Inspiration in Action features UN Volunteers enhancing disaster preparedness in India and providing electoral support in Timor Leste.  Their actions cause ripples of change in communities, inspiring local volunteers to make a difference.  This documentary presents the motivations, aspirations, experiences and challenges of UN Volunteers, and demonstrates the impact of their contributions.

The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is inspired by the conviction that volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development and by the idea that everyone can contribute their time and energy towards peace and development. Volunteerism contributes to a more cohesive society by building trust and reciprocity within and between communities. It is a powerful force that enables everyone, including marginalized and disadvantaged people, to contribute to peace and development, on-site and online, all around the world. UN Volunteers make distinctive contributions in pursuit of human development, with a particular focus on helping countries in transition or crisis.
 

UNV is administered by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
