UNV Opening And Lost Pictures Found!
We are in the process of a Volunteer-Based Program for Disaster Risk Reduction at the Community Level in the Bicol Region. We would be needing National UNVs for this project. National UNV Specialist receives a Volunteer Living Allowance of P20,500 per month while NUNV FWs receives P10,500/month; equivalent one-month VLA for a 12-month satisfactory performance; vacation leaves and sick leaves; medical and life insurance coverage; DSA for project-related travels.
You may wish to help me build our roster of applicants for recruitment once the project is approved. Recruitment is planned on the first quarter of 2008. Kindly share this information to your network and request them to submit a completed UN PHS form via email to me if they have the necessary qualifications and experience.
Generally, the following are the minimum requirements:
- University degree or higher technical diploma
- At least 25 years old (no upper age limit)
- Several years of relevant working experience, preferably at least five
- Strong commitment to the values and principles of volunteerism

Some of the activities that national UNVs may involved in are related to health, water and sanitation, infrastructure building, information management, developing local-level contingency and family preparedness plan, education and awareness on Disaster Risk Reduction, improving community-based early warning system, environmental and community vulnerability assessment of 40 barangays, training of women volunteers in community preparedness & forming self-help groups of women
The program would cover 40 barangays in the Bicol region which are most hazard-prone.

And here are some fun UNV pictures I found last night! I thought I've lost them until I realized it's on our website's hidden gallery page!
Here we are in Pampanga doing community immersion and attending some workshop of Biodynamic farming in Prado Farm. It is after our stay in Prado Farm when I realized that it was featured on Korina Sanchez's Rated K, because of it's famous gate made of discarded LPG Tanks! Sooo cool!
And here, our visit to the Aeta community in Rizal with Voice of the Youth Network. This is where we did the Christmas Kindness children's party (Christmas nga ba? I remember we gave out tons of gift baskets in cute cartoon bags!). Cute!
Here, our own Christmas party:
