ivolunteer, celebrating everyday heroes. Posted by Hello

To mark this year’s National Volunteer Month and International Volunteer Day, various groups sharing the same vision to promote volunteerism in the Philippines have come together to organize a special celebration: “Discover. Act. Volunteer. A Volunteer Fair to Celebrate Everyday Heroes" at the Intramuros’ Clamshell 2 on Dec 5 (Sunday).

The Volunteer Fair will be open from 11am to 9pm. At least 30 NGO’s spearheading different causes will be on site to recruit interested volunteers. Individuals or groups may sign up for various NGOs and corporate foundations supporting causes such as children and elderly welfare, women's rights, environmental awareness, and urban and rural development among others. Complementing this volunteer-matching affair is a whole-day program: round table discussions on volunteerism, a photo, video and art exhibit, awarding of the essay-writing contest winners and guest performances.

The organizing team of this year’s NVM celebration includes iVolunteer.ph, Phil Business for Social Progress (PBSP), Phil National Volunteer Services Coordinating Agency (PNVSCA), Volunteer Organization Information Coordination and Exchange (VOICE), VSO Bahaginan, CreativeAid, Filipino United Nations Volunteers Association (FUNVA), People Power People Movement and the United Nations Volunteer (UNV).
