VOLUNTEERISM means sacrificing precious time, energy, knowledge, experience and resources for the benefit of others in the community and, more broadly, the nation.
It is no easy feat, particularly when the volunteers are people with no formal employment and with no stable financial base.
It’s a mammoth task, particularly in the society that is ridden with greed and selfishness, and yet members of the Simbu Writers Association (SWA) are devoted to it.
