SDG 10: Reduced inequalities, SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals

“Some people begin to see refugees as numbers — or even worse, as threats,” says Anja Ingabire, a UN volunteer with UNHCR in Jordan. “Behind each refugee there are personal stories of loss and tragedy. Every story is unique and touches you in a different way. It is the person who makes the story.”

As we sit on our comfortable couches at home and watch TV or read articles about refugees in areas of crisis or conflict, it is easy to become desensitized to the plight of this most vulnerable demographic.

SDG 4: Quality education, SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals

Over the years, communicating effectively on issues affecting children and youth in the Middle East has become more challenging, as the public pays less and less attention to civil society and human rights violations.

Rasha Abou Dargham, originally from Lebanon, is serving as a UN Volunteer Social Media Officer with UNICEF in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Regional Office in Amman. As a UN Volunteer, she is learning how to speak on behalf of children in a multicultural and demanding environment.

SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals

J’ai toujours rêvé de m’engager et de participer au magnifique programme de développement durable et de pouvoir aider le monde à construire un avenir meilleur. La décision de m’inscrire dans la banque de candidats du programme VNU me permet de briser les barrières qui entravent souvent les femmes au Pakistan, et qui peuvent empêcher la poursuite de nos rêves de vivre et de travailler à l’étranger de manière autonome. J’ai la chance d’être née dans une famille matriarcale. Ma mère m’a ainsi encouragée et soutenue dans ma décision. Elle m’a accompagnée pendant tout le processus.

SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals

It has always been my dream to step out and contribute to the greater agenda of sustainable development and to be able to support the world towards a better future. The decision to enroll in UNV’s pool of applicants allowed me to challenge the barriers women often face in Pakistan, which can prohibit us from pursuing our dreams of independently living and working abroad. Being a part of woman headed family, my mother encouraged me and stood by my decision, making sure that I am not alone throughout the process.

SDG 2: Zero hunger, SDG 3: Good health and well-being

Saima Mohammad works as an Associate Public Health Officer for UNHCR in the North-East of Jordan, near the Syrian border. Approximately 50,000 refugees, mostly women and children, are residing in Rukban camp without access to any other health facility than the local clinic.

Every morning, Saima travels almost three hours from her office in Ruwaished to Rukban, driving through sensitive military posts on a partially-paved road. In this desert area, no facility or shop are to be seen for kilometres.

SDG 4: Quality education, SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

There are different interpretations of the concept of volunteering across cultures and regions, and this is equally true within Arab countries. When a wealthy citizen reacts to a natural disaster by offering to contribute money, or makes donations of blankets and food to the people affected by the disaster, this is often seen as voluntary and therefore volunteerism. Charity is a vital component of humanitarian assistance, but it is not volunteerism.
