If there is one thing you have contributed to the development of your community, what is it?
On the contrary, take your time to reflect back and asked yourself whether your community has not contributed to your well-being. Though it might not be tangible, but think about the peace in your community, the communal living you enjoyed as a child, the moral lessons you learnt from storytelling by the aged and the one your neighbor taught you, just to mention few.
As you request for more and better job, education and social empowerment, we think the development directly affect you when it happened first from your immediate community. But no one will make it happen except you.
One major way you can do this is through volunteering. It is a means for you to invest back to the society. No one is useless. The little you have, you know, you have acquire, you’ve gathered can help another one only when you’re willing to share.
It is against this background we initiate the Africa Volunteering Week.
