It should be noted that, The State Committee on Work with Diaspora has launched a program called “Azerbaijani Diaspora Volunteers” based on the speech of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan at the Republican Meeting on the Youth Day in 2019: “I recommend that government agencies promote young people because our society needs the potential, the activity of young people and their new vision. I recommended that all government organizations recruit volunteers”.
In connection with the announcement of 2020 as a Year of Volunteers in the country, the State Committee has developed an action plan for volunteering. Involving diaspora volunteers in trainings is also part of the action plan.
