Volunteers devoted to their life to help others regardless their time and effort. However, in 2010, the numbers of volunteers dropped significantly.

Volunteering is the course of action that individual’s willing to perform without anticipating any payment to help other people, community and organization. A vast literature was conducted using through various database such as Emerald, Goggle Scholar, Science Direct, Psychological and Behavioral Science Collection and reference list from key studies used to locate information relevant to the study.
