Experience, the joy of volunteering
Why do people volunteer
We all know that volunteers’ contributions help organizations provide services that may not get done otherwise. But volunteers also can gain experience that they may not get elsewhere, such as building their confidence and self-esteem.
Volunteering provides a unique opportunity
It connects people with very specific shared values. Volunteers are also people who also share things like a willingness to step outside their comfort zone, an openness to spending time on a community effort, a proclivity for engaging in team-oriented activities, and a desire to contribute to the well-being of others.
Meet New People and Build Community
Being a part of a team with a common goal will help you form bonds with strangers that can be life-changing. Volunteering inherently means helping people, and that means you’ll be creating meaningful relationships with others and increasing your social interactions.
Learn through Experience
Learning about cultures and ways of life that are different from one of your upbringing will increase your social flexibility and expand your world-view. It will also raise awareness of the issues that other people deal with and will increase important social skills like empathy and teamwork.
Empowering Tribal Communities
In the last decade, AROEHAN has increased its footprint across Mokhada, Jawhar, Palghar, and Dahanu blocks of Palghar district and established credibility in the area especially for its work in water conservation, health and nutrition, solar based irrigation and for introducing farmers to second cropping during the rabi season for growing vegetables and engaging in floriculture.
