UN VOOLLUNTEEER DESSCRIPTIONN OF ASSSGNNMEENTT LBRR000033-Addminstatve Asssantt The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide. Volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development and it benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer. UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for volunteerism globally, encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing volunteers.In most cultures volunteerism is deeply embedded in long-established, ancient traditions of sharing and support within the communities. In this context, UN Volunteers take part in various forms of volunteerism and play a role in development and peace together with co-workers, host agencies and local communities.In all assignments, UN Volunteers promote volunteerism through their action and conduct. Engaging in volunteer activity can effectively and positively enrich their understanding of local and social realities, as well as create a bridge between themselves and the people in their host community. This will make the time they spend as UN Volunteers even more rewarding and productive :

Liberia is a post conflict country. The country is generally safer, with the exception of petty crimes especially in the cities. It is mandatory to complete the following: Basic Security in the Field and Advanced Security in the Field. The current UN security level for Liberia is Level 2. The widely used currencies for business transactions are the Liberian Dollars and U.S. Dollars. Banking facilities are widely available but the use of bank credit and debit cards is limited. There are two major mobile telephone companies including Lone Star and Orange providing services and sim cards can be easily bought with cash after registration by the Service provider. At the moment, there are no fixed telephone lines in Liberia/Monrovia. 28 Dec 2018 Page 1 of 5Monrovia electricity on the national grid exists in few locations.

UN personnel are provided medical services in the UN Agency clinic, which is located on the ground floor of the Pan African Plaza in Sinkor, Monrovia, Liberia. Other medical services can be obtained at other medical facilities in Monovia and its environs.
