The UC Nursing CESDEV volunteers trooped to West Gorordo Hotel last August 18, 2007 to attend a forum on Global Education - a key program of the Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO).

The program hopes to promote global education and South-South exchanges and offers Filipinos the opportunity to share their skills and learn about another culture elsewhere and for their personal and professional growth in the field of education, health and employment generation.

Student nurses and CESDEV volunteers excitedly wait for the afternoon seminar to start.

In the morning, there was an exhibit of interesting items and memorabilias that the VSO volunteers brought along with them from the countries where they were assigned.
Photographs, various interesting items, wood crafts, native dresses or costumes, totems, among many others were on exhibit.

Ma'am Ethel Maamo gladly shared her experience as a VSO volunteer in Nepal.
The student nurses were all smiles as they were "transported" from one country to another.
More than the fascinating "trip", the student nurses also attended a forum on Global Education where competent speakers shared valuable ideas.

Moreover, the sharing of the experiences of the VSO volunteers ignited the interests of the student nurses and CESDEV volunteers. The VSO volunteers looked great in their costumes adding greater aunthentic feeling to the already hyped afternoon.

The lecture on Inclusive Education was also very informative.
The Closing Remarks was given a dramatic twist leaving the audience enthralled yet touched by the message.

The CESDEV volunteers who believed that "not only for themselves are they born" posed with the VSO volunteers who "shared their skills and changed lives."
