Volunteers like to visit old age home and orphanages; and this time we have a great excuse. We are giving away t-shirts provided by Utsav Events. So far, 70 t-shirts have been given out to:
KG has helped me to learn, think and feel the necessities of the society. I learned to work in group, speak in front of mass and most important thing that I understood was the small change from individuals can make change in the society. Volunteering in KG, I saw the poor students who were unable to study because they don’t have copies to write. While we were distributing them copies there was a big smile on their face which made me proud that my decision to join KG was correct.
It’s been a year now that I got involved in KG. KG has provided me with ample of opportunities to explore the realities of the lives of children of a poor family and how they live with it. No sweaters to wear in the cold, no copies to write in, no proper meal any day and a lot more were the problems they had. But KG not only let me know about the existing problems, but taught me solutions how to tackle with them and the core one was ‘Be the Change’. It was actually change in us individuals/ volunteers that we were so determined to rush every morning just to distribute copies to the children (Stationery Campaign 2014) and perform campaigns to collect fund for them to distribute sweaters (Sweaters’ Campaign 2014). This change that KG has brought upon me makes me feel so proud of myself because I never knew that my little efforts could bring so true and huge smiles in the faces of those needy ones. I wish to work with KG in future too.
There is no any better way to utilize your free time by engaging in social work. I started working with Kehi Garoun since 2013. It was a great experience for me, visiting schools and interacting with the students was a totally a new experience. I started off with sweater’s campaign where we provided sweaters to the needy students. After our face painting and fund raising campaign we were able generate enough funds to distribute sweaters to more than 20 government school students. It was a really proud moment we got a lot of appreciation from the local people, government schools and the youths itself. With the success and completion of sweater’s campaign it gave me even more enthusiasm to work on its next project i.e. the stationery campaign. My time here in KG has been a massive learning opportunity. I suggest people to come here and try it for yourself and feel the change in you.
I have been involved in KG for around 1 year. Working in KG helped me to increase my confidence level. It is a great platform for the youngsters who want to return something to the society. I volunteered in KG for two campaigns (Happy Tummy and Stationery Campaign). Working there I came to know how government school students are unable to concentrate on their study because they don’t have copy to write. I am very thankful to KG which is doing a great job, motivating young people like us to engage in the social cause.
I joined KG just to complete the mandatory hours of social work asked by my college. Social work was just an obligation. After joining and participating in activities by KG, that obligation is no more an obligation, which is now social responsibility. I get to know the other half of our Primary education system, the suffering side of Nepalese Education. I feel good to be part of KG supporting the needy children who are struggling for their primary level of education.
I am a BBA student at Kathmandu University School of Management. I like to volunteer especially for social cause, and KG provided me with a great platform to be part of several of its campaign. With every campaign since 2012, I have learnt lots of things, from simple hand washing technique to sophisticated art of heeding. But above all I learnt the value of small things like books, clothes, and copies; those things which I have been taking for granted were prized items for the students. I learnt to be responsible for the things I have, and more importantly towards the society where I feel obliged to help with my volunteering work.
As we live in society we have to contribute something that we can. I have been involved in KG around 1year. Volunteering in KG for different campaigns like happy tummy, sweater campaign and stationary campaign makes me feel good because I had helped the needy students and can see a smile on the faces of those kids. I am very glad to be a part of KG.
I’m Ayush Manandhar. I’m from Kathmandu and I’m currently doing my Bachelors in Business Administration.
I have always found it difficult to understand why there are so many problems in the world and why so little is being done to solve them. Frustrated at the lack of progress of our own country I, like many of my fellow young people,Often indulged in criticizing the “Government” and “Politicians” for what they’re doing and what they ought to do. Never once did I ever ask myself what I could do.But since joining KG’s “Stationery Campaign” program if feel like I’m contributing. Not very much maybe, but I’m still contributing. And the KG team has made me realize that every contribution counts, no matter how small. Now I have come to realize that true and sustained change can only be achieved in the society if every problem is thoroughly addressed and solved- one at a time. The “Stationery Campaign” program addresses a problem that has been so easily overlooked and I’m proud to be a part of it.
