This Is What Global Voices Would Look Like Without Our Volunteers

This is what Global Voices would look like without our Volunteers

And that's only a slight exaggeration: we do have a small core of staff and editors, but the real engine of Global Voices is our volunteers, who make up 96% of the community. Many editors and staff members also started out as volunteers.  

So on this International Volunteers Day, we pay special tribute to the hundreds of Global Voices volunteers who've worked so hard over the past 10 years to keep the world informed about under-covered events and stories in their particular corners of the globe. Thank you, GV volunteers—we'd literally be nowhere without you!

Get to know more about our volunteers by reading our series of GV community member profiles, and learn more about volunteering for Global Voices here.
