The 2018 State of the World’s Volunteerism Report presents new evidence on the role of volunteerism in strengthening community resilience.
Weaving patterns of resilience
The 2018 State of the World’s Volunteerism Report, The thread that binds: Volunteerism and community resilience, looks at how the distinctive characteristics of local volunteerism help or hinder communities in crisis. For the first time, the report draws on field research carried out by volunteers with 1200 participants in 15 diverse communities.
The report also explores how governments and other development actors can partner with locally owned solutions to strengthen community resilience.
