Estonia - Année européenne du bénévolat 2011

In Estonia, the concept of volunteerism has only been developed so far by organizations that carry out voluntary actions. Within these organizations, a volunteer is considered to be an individual who provides services to or for the benefit of another person, by free choice and without compensation. At the moment, there is neither general regulations nor a special law regulating volunteerism or a legal status of volunteers in Estonia.
