The Capital for Volunteering Pass

The Capital Governorate has launched the first version of the "Capital Governorate’s Volunteering Charter" project in cooperation with the United Nations Office in Bahrain, and six other international agencies and organisations under the umbrella of the United Nations: The United Nations Development Program, the United Nations Environment Program, the World Meteorological Organisation, the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation, the United Nations Population Fund, and the United Nations Volunteers Program. Therefore, gaining the Charter international credibility as it is being recognised, in addition to the backing of strategic partners; the Tamkeen Labour Fund, and Ahli United Bank. 

Furthermore, this initiative is in line with the UN's 17 sustainable development goals in accordance with the 2030 Sustainable Development Plan adopted by 193 countries at the historic United Nations summit in 2015. The aim of the Charter is to regulate voluntary work in the Kingdom and give it international accreditation in cooperation with the United Nations Office in Bahrain, within a framework that unites the various streams of voluntary work, which aligns with Governorate’s goal to raise individuals’ awareness and include them in social development due to the direct and positive impact that will have on the Governorate’s mission towards social responsibility.
