Tashkent, Uzbekistan: It was a great honour for me, as the national IYV+10 Coordinator in Uzbekistan, to directly participate in the celebration of the birth of the United Nations. We enjoyed a gorgeous autumn day in Tashkent on Monday 24 October, still blessed with vitamin D from the sun.
In many cities and town across Uzbekistanm UN Volunteers not only help communities but are simultaneoulsy changing the notion of what it means to volunteer in this part of the world. They visit schools and engage children and youth to volunteer.
