Volunteering With Greer Foundations

What does it take to volunteer?

This question normally rings in the mind of one who wants to offer voluntary service;

  • What will I gain?

Ask yourself these questions;

  • Can I offer myself to provide voluntary services without material or financial rewards?
  • Do I mean it in principle in my quest to reach out to the less privileged in society made destitute by dehumanizing socio-economic structures?
  • And ultimately what drives me as a human being?

If you can answer these questions in the affirmative, then this is the right forum for you to serve the people. A volunteer should have strong motivation and commitment to offer services with dignity without imposing values on those who receive your help. This is irrespective of academics, religion, social status, etc. and must remain a servant of the people as demonstrated by the values that guiding exchange of good practices in society. Equipped with these values, this organization welcomes you to come and witness circumstances that dictate the current global systems and in a little way, help to bring real change in the lives of fellow humanity with humility, compassion and utter determination to enhance social justice.
