ADD MEANING TO YOUR LIFE
olunteer work is something close to my heart. Personally speaking, I’ve found that carving out time to help others has made life more meaningful.
I’ve volunteered at various places over the years, and presently teach at micro-business school Aidha. The nonprofit organisation empowers domestic helpers by providing the skills they need to start small businesses when they return home. The education they receive spans from money management skills to communication abilities.
When volunteering, it is important to find a cause that you feel strongly about. Ask friends and family for ideas, or visit the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre’s website at www.nvpc.org.sg for inspiration.
Volunteering your time to help others also has positive effects on your health. Here are just three ways it is good for you.
