“Do you still remember when you got the information about your placement in Nepal? Do you remember wondering what other volunteers experiences were like whilst you were still sitting at home and planning for your trip into the great unknown? Did any of you spent time searching the internet for snippets of information about where you were going to be working? Would you have liked a focal point for some of your questions?
If the answer to any of this is YES, then STEPS would like your help. We want your photographs and a brief narrative, (No more than 100 words) which highlights one aspect of your experience as a volunteer. The only thing that we would ask is that it is a balanced and objective view which offers an insight into life as a volunteer.
And because we are such lovely people, there will be a small prize for the best three submissions, as voted for by the current STEPS committee and VSON representative on STEPS.
Closing date end of February 2011, with a no expense spared award ceremony at the 2011 Annual Conference.
