Our Campaign Storyends 16 Feb 2018, 11:59 PM
As my quarter life coming, I thought I should not indulge myself with cakes and gifts but to celebrate this milestone by sharing the love. I would be forever grateful if you can support me on this campaign.
Instead of birthday cakes (even if you are not planning to get me one :p), I want to share the joy by supporting Aidha, an organisation with mission is to provide financial literacy and self-development skills to foreign domestic workers and lower income women so that they can create sustainable futures for themselves.
I've been volunteering with them for more than 6 months now, teaching a computer workshop every fornightly. And I probably learnt more than what I have taught to them. When I am busy complaining about my laggy laptop, someone there is struggling to buy one. When I am busy complaining about my life, someone there teach me how simple a joy in life can be. I think if we can take time in our life, just to see how much things we take for granted, only then we can be grateful.
I am a big believer that social changes should start from within (i.e. education), no matter how small and I personally witnessed how all the women there working so hard to reach their dream - I wanted to contribute a little more.
If each of us can just do a little bit more for someone else, isn't life will be much better?
