Seva, Sadaqah and Ubuntu; Celebrating BME Volunteering


During Volunteer Week (1st-7th June) Voice4Change are holding an event to celebrate the contribution volunteers make to BME organisations.

Seva, Sadaqah and Ubuntu are all concepts of volunteering, giving and community in different languages and cultures. As well as celebrating these concepts and the work that volunteers do we want to answer some important questions;

  • · What can be done to uphold the volunteering legacy of the 2012 London Olympics in BME communities?
  • · Why is volunteering important in BME communities?
  • · What can we do to encourage BME volunteering?
  • · How to BME VCS organisations take on volunteers?

1.30pm-4pm, Monday 3rd June – Hackney CVS, 84 Springfield House, 5 Tyssen Street, London, E8 2LY

The event will be chaired by Elizabeth Balgobin, Chair, Voice4Change England.
