The aim of forming this group is to bring together all the like minded people who want to bring in a lasting change in the lives of the underprivileged.
You give a poor man a fish and you feed him for a day. You teach him to fish and you give him an occupation that will feed him for a lifetime.”
Charity is usually an immediate response to a problem through sympathy where a person has a moral need to do good by helping a person that requires help. In this example, by giving a man a fish, as this is a quick fix to a hungry man.
Philanthropy on the other hand, is a set of long term strategic actions towards finding a remedy for, and fixing a problem. It is like executing a long duration project with an aim to bring some social change. It doesn't always need big money, an individual can contribute too in driving a change.
It requires planning and educational and vocational training to make a poor man stand on his feet to fend for himself. The idea of our group is to form long term strategic goals and find a remedy to fix some social problems like education, healthcare and livelihood.
We are looking for highly motivated people to volunteer to bring in a positive change under the umbrella of Sukaaryam ( a registered society). Let’s meet to discuss livelihood and other social issues, to plan events and and to raise funds to support the underprivileged society to become self reliant.
The only qualification required is enthusiasm, passion, compassion and deep desire to make a difference.
