National Volunteer Day
Saturday, September 21, 2013 from 12:00 AM to 11:30 PM (WEST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
National Volunteer Day is to encourage as many volunteer activities on September 21, 2013 which is Founder’s Day. We want to see more people in Ghana use the holiday to create, support and join volunteer activities. September 21 or Founder’s Day has been chosen as it's one that doesn’t have specific activities. It is to honour the birth of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and Ghana’s founders. Ghana’s founders served Ghana so the call on September 21 will be for Ghanaians to serve as well.
See the press release here at the GhanaThink Foundation website.
