Volunteer With Us

"The essence of life is to serve others and do good" Aristotle.

How can volunteering enrich your life?

There are 8760 hours in a year. Ever wondered how can you spend your time meaningfully? According to a research on the health benefits of volunteering (2007),  one needs only to commit at least 1 or 2 hours a week in order to receive positive health outcomes.

Here are how volunteering can enrich your life:

  1. Making a difference – Big or small, any help makes a difference, even something as simple as sorting out donated items.
  2. Cultivating a sense of gratitude - Many studies have shown that helping others makes us feel good.  OECD Better Life Index suggests that volunteers tend to feel more contented with their lives.
  3. Making new friends – Meet new people with shared interests can lead to new friendships and a broader social support network.
  4. Learning new skills – Apart from gaining valuable experience in something completely different, volunteering is a great way to explore a new career or a particular industry, without any long-term commitment.
  5. Boosting mental & physical health – Evidence suggests that people who volunteer their time not only feels more socially connected, hence warding off loneliness and depression but also contributes to lower blood pressure and a longer lifespan.

So if you think you are ready to contribute your time meaningfully, please fill up the Volunteer Application form.
