The Ottawa Declaration
The Singapore International Foundation supports The Ottawa Declaration.
The Ottawa Declaration emphasises the role which millions of volunteers all over the world are playing and their contribution to sustainable development. It also requests the UN to ensure that organisations involved with international volunteering are among the stakeholders to be consulted in the ongoing discussions.

The International FORUM on Development Service (known as “FORUM”) is the most significant global network of International Volunteer Co-operation Organisations. FORUM aims to share information, develop good practice and enhance co-operation and support between its Members. Together, FORUM Members explore innovative practice and research key contemporary issues, focusing on organisational learning and improved practice. The Singapore International Foundation is a member of FORUM.
The FORUM Charter outlines values and principles that FORUM asks Member organisations to aspire to, and sign up to, when they join FORUM. Based on what was agreed in principle by the quorum of Members present at the 2009 AGM in Budapest, this document aims to be a "timeless" one.Click here for the FORUM Charter
