The categories were Dreaming Big - stories of how malaria affects the ability of children to achieve their dreams, Volunteers in Action - extraordinary work of Peace Corps Volunteers in the field, and Malaria Heros in the Community – stories of local community members stepping up to protect the women and children in their communities by fighting malaria.

[...] For my listening campaign the weeks leading up to World Malaria day, April 25, 2o13, I will regularly search specific hashtags such as #malaria, #worldmalariaday, #endmalaria, #thebigpush and #EWECprogress. In 2008, Sec-General Ban Ki-moon appointed Ray Chambers as the Special Envoy for Malaria. http://www.malariaenvoy.com/ I have had the most wonderful experience working in Ray’s office and recently teamed up with the Peace Corps malaria initiative to bring heightened attention to the issue of malaria prevention. We are trying to provide a platform for stories from the local integrated perspective of Peace Corps volunteers on the front lines of malaria prevention to reach a global audience. http://stompoutmalaria.org/2012-photo-contest-winners/ [...]
