Looking for volunteers for World Vision's One Life Revolution

Looking for volunteers for World Vision's One Life Revolution (OLR)
hi friends,

One Life Revolution reached over 10,000 lives !!

Due to the overwhelming response, One Life Revolution is embarking on our second leg to 5 more venues in the Klang Valley (2), Penang, Kuantan and Johor Bahru.

One Life Revolution (OLR) is a unique walk through experiential exhibit that's held in Malaysia for the 1st time. OLR lets people 'walk in the shoes' of others who have suffered the plight of social injustice. The life-size exhibit gives people the opportunity to have a direct encounter of someone else’s life as they struggle to cope with HIV/AIDS and living in harsh conditions prone to child trafficking.

OLR is basically a public awareness and advocacy campaign. The exhibit aims to raise awareness, among Malaysians, of the plight of children affected by HIV/AIDS and child trafficking. It is hoped that having 'walked in the shoes' of the children featured, visitors would develop a sense of compassion and be challenged to help those affected in various capacities.

Now we are once again seeking your kind assistance at our 1st venue as stated below:

Venue : Community Excel Services (CES), Dream Centre

Would encourage any of my blog readers to share with me any event that you come across. As long as the event/activity/initiative is education/charity/youth oriented and is not-for-profit, I would be more than happy to post it to share!
