Volunteerism for Community Development (VCD)

Volunteerism for Community Development (VCD) Program is the custodian of volunteerism in NCHD.  VCD is also undertaking tasks in connection with achievement of SDGs & Vision 2025. It is directly fulfilling the community participation task as mentioned in the mission of NCHD and which is also a part of the NCHD Ordinance. VCD Program functions as a support program for the implementation of Education and Health initiatives. Volunteers are identified through meetings at Union Council and District levels with the stakeholders and are given training in the implementation of program activities. Each district has registered volunteers providing support in monitoring, trainings, advocacy and resource mobilization. NCHD has always relied on its volunteers’ support over the years. These volunteers developed National Volunteer Corps, Forum of philanthropists, and generated Resources for different activities.
