“Give your hands to serve, and your heart to love.” – Mother Teresa
In this increasingly hectic world, we often find ourselves getting caught in the rat race, while striving to increase our own standing and well-being in the society. It is with little wonder that people grow more individualistic and inward looking day by day.
Pause and think.
When was the last time you made a difference to someone’s life? While it is easy to be swept up in our own troubles, we must not forget that there are others who are less fortunate than us.
This is just a glimpse of how fellow students have been giving back. No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Be inspired to be a force for good too.
