T he Mak­ing a Dif­fer­ence fea­ture on Gulf 4 Good was truly in­ter­est­ing (‘Chil­dren are our fu­ture’, Jan­uary 24). It’s in­cred­i­ble that this is an or­gan­i­sa­tion that of­fers an op­por­tu­nity to make a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to so­ci­ety for all those peo­ple who don’t know how to go about it. I am one of them.

For many years I have been think­ing of giv­ing back in some way but apart from mak­ing mone­tary con­tri­bu­tions, I have never done any­thing sub­stan­tial. I have been want­ing to take some time off from my busy cor­po­rate life and be an in­te­gral part of a cause so that I con­nect with un­der­priv­i­leged peo­ple and help bring about se­ri­ous and last­ing change.

Af­ter read­ing this ar­ti­cle I am go­ing to get in touch with the or­gan­i­sa­tion and make firm plans.
