There are feedback from people and civil society in discussing the implementation of various government programs. Organizations that work with target groups today should be involved in discussions of longterm documents, “said Vera Kim.

It is necessary to increase the development of civil society volunteer activities. Next year, the “Year of Volunteer” was approved. That’s why the issue of support and development of volunteer activities is very important to us. Today, we are ready to make offers to support the volunteer service in a comprehensive system, “Kim said.
