Volunteerism is what is most noble in humans. And
it stands to reason that volunteerism is fully exploited in the
service of mankind. That voluntary organizations can meet many needs
and aspirations of the people needs no demonstrated proof. The idea
to make these organizations the corner stone of social development
has been attempted but not fully exploited yet. That is why our
government has decided, as policy, to associate voluntary organizations
in all their programmes for the people, and help them financially
to participate. Should voluntary organisations allow a dilution
of the voluntary spirit by having in their organizational structure
too many people to hold position of power ;in an ex-officio capacity?
It goes without saying that some officials are as good as any run
of the mill volunteer.
