UN VOLUNTEER TERMS OF REFERENCE
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, UNV 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.

Mrs. Manjia Balema-Samba Letter Of Appeal For Slaj To Assist Me Get Justice From The Judiciary
I am Mrs. Manjia Balema-Samba, a female journalist working for the United Nations Radio covering South-Eastern locations and the State-owned SLBS Kenema radio. I host a popular Live Phone-In Radio Programme that is enjoyed all over the Eastern Province every Sunday afternoon in Kenema, Kailahun and Kono. I am a married woman since 2006 when my beloved husband, Mr. Balema Samba took my hand in marriage. Long before I met my husband, for a period of three years from 2001 until 2003, I used to date the current Paramount Chief of Small Bo Chiefdom, Hon. P.C. Mohamed Dhaffie Benya who currently lives in Blama, the Headquarters of his Chiefdom. My former partner is today a very powerful man since he is also the Honourable Paramount Chief representing Kenema District in the House of Parliament. As a very powerful man in Sierra Leone, his support is needed by many other powerful politicians who give way to his whims just to make him happy. After three years of being with me, in 2003, after he won the Chieftaincy with my help, he left me and later married a woman by the name of Joan Satta Freeman. This woman went to school and spent her life in Kenema and was always known by the name of Joan Satta Freeman before she got married and became known as Mrs. Joan Satta Benya. No other name but Mrs. Joan Satta Benya is her correct name
