“To mark Volunteers Day to remaind the true champions” Dear Colleagues and Partners, I would like to take this opportunity to highlights the importance of United Nations Volunteers and NGO’s working in the field of emergency operations and to mark International Day on December 5th 2006. "The past year’s natural disasters have highlighted the invaluable contributions of volunteers and NGO’s in our communities. From the flooded streets of New Orleans to the flattened villages in Pakistan, ordinary people have risen to extraordinary challenges. They have volunteered their time, energy and skills to save lives and to rebuild communities. Through their service, they have shown us the very best of humanity. In this they joined countless people around the world who volunteer every day in response to “silent crises”. These often unsung heroes understand all too well that poverty, disease and famine are just as deadly and destructive as earthquakes, hurricanes and tsunamis. Individuals, young and old, of all nationalities, ethnicities and beliefs, are taking on these challenges in their communities, volunteering to Make a Difference. They remain the true champions of our work towards the Millennium Development Goals. We have to react and

we must work all together. As world leaders reiterated at the World Summit in

September, achievement of the Millennium Development Goals requires a collective effort. If we are to make poverty history, we must have the active participation of States, civil society and the private sector, as well as individual volunteers. A united approach is especially critical in countries that will not meet the Millennium Development

Goals

without

dramatic increases in effort. On this International Volunteer Day, let us remember the large numbers of citizens who, day in and day out, through acts of volunteerism large and small, bring hope to so many of the world’s disadvantaged. Let us ensure that this wonderful resource, available in abundance to every nation, is recognized and supported as it works towards a more prosperous and peaceful world." Sidi Cherif, Executive President, WFWO

THE MAIN ACTIVITIES AND PROJECTS ACHIEVED AS PER STRATEGY PLAN FOR 2006 1.

INTRODUCTION

Seeking to contribute to the Millennium Development Goals (adopted by the international community, WFWO’s strategy plan and orientation, pursuit of development objectives nationally and internationally, the WFWO will continue to place highest priority on initiatives in the following areas: (a) improvement of food security, health, educations, with particular emphasis on the needs of women and youth; (b) developing rural financial services that reach isolated populations without previous access to financial markets and are well integrated into the national financial sector framework; (c) capacity building in support of decentralized decision-making processes for participatory rural development; (d) natural resources management and the environment, with emphasis on supporting anti-decertification initiatives; (e) public awareness; (f) fundraising; (g) Communications support Projects (h) portal facilities for NGO Network, to support the MDG’s;

To achieve these objectives,WFWO and its partners, will continue to stress the importance of gender-differentiated target group participation in defining project objectives and priority activities; maximizing the use of local knowledge and experience; and pursuing a strategic orientation to the WFWO’s investments through strengthened collaboration with United Nations NGO Section DESA, governments, civil society. Private sector and other donors to ensure that project interventions fit closely within the context of overall economic and sectorial development strategies for individual countries. The main activities and projects contributed by WFWO in 2006, as per strategy plan focusing on sustainable development projects already operating to contribute to the MDG’s objectives and the most important aims for 2005/6 was the emergency natural disasters operations to support different region of the world: Tsunami, Sudan hungry, Pakistan earthquarke, Hurricane Katherine as well as Campaign Worldwide to raise public awareness on global development issues. Global Action Needed to Stop Natural Disasters ... In 2005 was the most challenging year for the emergency operations aid world faced since the story of humanity. The relentless onslaught of the Indian Ocean Tsunami, drought in Africa, Congo, Uganda, continuing conflict in Darfur, Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Stan and the devastating earthquake in Pakistan took hundreds of thousands of lives and destroyed many more homes and livelihoods. The Tsunami, in one of its most complex aid operations ever, stretching from Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. WFWO and its partners, NGO’s and private sectors worked hand to hand to prevent a second wave of deaths from disease and starvation to assist survivor’s peoples. The climate change and global warming on the environmental issue will continue causing natural disasters in the up coming years.

The most challenging contributions by the UN special agencies and media dealing with emergency operations has played in important role in Aceh, Indonesia, one of the worst affected areas, helping 40,000 humanitarian volunteers, donors and journalists reach the disaster area on the UN Humanitarian Air Service and moving thousands of tons of food, medical supplies and shelter by air. By the end of the year, much of activities provided by all, had evolved into helping communities recover from the tragedy, providing women, men and children with better nutrition and access to food, health and education services. None of this work would have been possible without the unprecedented response of donors and solidarity of all, who reacted with lightening speed to the appeal for funds, and thanks to all, in particularly the UN family agencies and local NGO’s and communities and peoples. WFWO’s Operations and Partnership with NGO’s In 2006 WFWO’s projects pipeline were reported that for 26 projects and 12 special programs in 29 countries , showing that 15% increase over 2004/05 including projects phases. We are grateful to all our partners, supporters for all their contributions, private funds, commodities, bilateral contributions co-financing projects, volunteers staff, services . The WFWO’s will continue to expand our donor base and increase partnerships with the private sector, for example in 2005 was the decision by the Ladies National Volleyball Team Federation to take the initiative to organize a match between the selection of Italian National Team and worldwide Stars, as well as GolfAid and other fundraising campaign, donate to support the WFWO activities operations including to Tsunami and other emergency operations. The WFWO strategy plan for 2006/2007, was revised by the WFWO’s Board Directors that we should play a catalytic role to give more importance of targeting assistance to population in need focusing on: improving development effectiveness of food security, health, educations, HIV/AIDS with particular emphasis on the needs of women and children and straighten our relations with our partners, UN NGO Global networks as a result of opportunities to improve our common Projects and Objectives. In 2005/2006, WFWO’s collaborated in 23 countries with 24 NGOs, of which 8 were international and 16 were local NGOs or community based organizations. Of the 26 operational projects, 14 had NGO partnerships, up slightly over (38 percent in 2006 compared to 25 percent in 2004/2005). NGOs partnered most frequently in general sustainable development projects, emergency operations, building capacity programs, and educations programs (8 NGOs) health, HIV/AIDS-related activities (6 NGOs). Just over 10 NGOs provided complementary services and inputs, an increase with respect to 2004 /05 of 13 percent (from 15 to 24 NGO partners). However, the percentage of projects in which NGOs provided complementary inputs and services decreased by 10 percent between 2004 and 2005 and 18 percent in 2006. More effort needed and reaction to eliminate hunger. Approximately 40,000 people die from hunger and poverty every day, and 300 million malnourished hungry children need our assistance and the solidarity of all. The number of chronically hungry people is on the rise – from 790 million in 1995 to over 850 million today – yet the volume of food aid from global donors has been halved over the past five years. For the first time in decades, we risk losing ground. We must keep our focus on the millions of children, and women ,men in the world who are hungry and who receive no support, and on the inequity of hunger. In September 2005, world leaders committed to deliver a unanimous endorsement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which challenge us all to reduce hunger and poverty, including the seventh targets. Leaders also signaled that the time is right to create strong, broad-based partnerships to mobilize political and resources will and public engagement to achieve the MDGs and end the hunger. WFWO and its partners remains committed to the achievement of the MDGs and we focused our communications activities on this effort to raise public awareness to call international communities to react to implement the MDG’ to be reached by 2015. The main challenges made by WFWO faces is in overcoming the time lag between disasters occurring and raising funds from donators coming in. Donors are incredibly generous once they see for themselves how dire a situation is, and how little it takes to make a difference. With more donations and fewer restrictions on how they are used, WFWO‘s and its partners is certain it could make an even-greater contribution to the MDG’s.
