We work at the grassroots level throughout the Muslim World to counter violent extremism before it takes hold, to promote tolerance and understanding, and to foster better relations with the United States.
Our volunteers have been sending in a variety of photos from their service abroad and (the majority) are wrapping up their service time. Because of this we are holding a photo contest amongst our volunteers in Zanzibar, Indonesia, Tajikistan and Morocco. Send us your best pictures, whether it’s working with children, volunteering with other Unofficial Ambassadors, or working alongside your co-workers. The only rule is that the theme of the pictures must be of the volunteers in action!
The winner will receive a credited publication in AUA’s annual statement (and the bragging rights that go along with the title) and the top ten photos will receive inclusion in a photo essay about AUA through an online publication site.
Here are examples of our previous 2013 volunteers in action:
