About Volunteering

Introduction


Volunteering is nothing but offering one's skills, competence, knowledge and resources full heartedly for the purpose of other's need without any expectation of return. Traditionally, though, voluntary work is viewed as selfless deed which is done for other's good, today's voluntary work is a little different and taken as helping others along with aiming to get something for their own. None of them are wrong because there is always an exchange of knowledge, skills, competence and resources between two people.

What Is Volunteering?
Volunteering is a choice made by you to make a difference by taking action and creating better circumstances for those in need in the community.


Why Volunteer?


We all are human being and there is humanity and compassion in every human being, although we are unable to think for others all the time due to our internal limitations. There is a say "if a human being think for his own only and not for others, he is nothing but a foolish animal because most of the animals, too, are born with natural ability to protect and help others along with doing their best for their family." Being a human being, all of us think for ourselves but what are we doing for others? It is very crucial to ponder towards this question. That is why, the door to the most satisfactory and pleasing life for anyone is to give a part of your time to help others. By managing the time, offering one's skills, competence, knowledge and resources to others and sharing one's experience could remain as unforgettable and pleasant memory for every human being. It is always memorable for everybody about their different pastures of work and their interrelationships with various aspects of its economical, geographical, social and cultural concerns. Within a small time period and limited resources, volunteering is an important medium to develop skills, knowledge and thoughts. Volunteer experiences help in transforming one's theoretical educational knowledge obtained from schools, colleges and universities into practical real life. It also contributes in significant manner in order to obtain and fulfill the educational qualification. The most important thing is that with your small amount of contribution, you can bring about significant change in somebody's life, family and society as a whole. That is why it is said that learning without volunteer is incomplete and selfish, so it is very important for everyone to do the voluntary work at least once in life.
