With enthusiasm, this large community force has been and is contributing greatly in social works at local level as well as acts as a bridge between civil society and community-based organizations and governmental organizations.

It closely follows the new attitude towards right-base and community-centered. Assessment conducted after the training shows that both attitude and knowledge of the volunteers has had significant improvement.
