Voluntary activity first emerged in the French army in the 17th century. This term came into existence after the registration of the French who wanted to become volunteer soldiers. So, in that period in Europe, those who voluntarily joined the military service were called "volontaires", i.e., "volunteers". The basis of volunteering is the philosophy of altruism. Volunteering is considered an altruistic activity where an individual or group provides services for no financial or social gain. The history of altruism is inextricably tied to sociology.
