Did you do anything that makes you feel proud?

I am sure most of you have the moment of doing things that feel so proud of oneself. It could be in simple or big. In 2011, I was a part of a team that renders my professional service as a volunteer in Tajikistan. The country wasn’t popular but surely, some of you will wonder where it is. It is one of the states in Central Asia. Some people would think that volunteerism is nothing. Others think that you cannot able to earn from it. Regardless, volunteering is a miracle work. The nature of the job was so challenging and rewarding at the same time. I was so proud to be in a team and able to help people with impairments or disabilities especially children.

I think you can do it. I have a co-volunteer from Japan before.

I've done a lot of volunteer work over the years. That's something I'm proud of. Right now I'm volunteering at a food pantry, an agricultural farm, and three libraries. I'm most proud of working at the pantry, because the patrons at the pantry don't have much. So giving healthy food to folks like them really helps them.

That's a good deed. I had done such volunteerism for a year in another country. It felt good to make unfortunate people to smile with hope.

I joined an International NGO based in Ortigas. They provided professional volunteers to under develop countries. I am still connected to them but it is inactive status. If I wish to re-volunteer, I will just inform the organization. It is a UK-based organization.

i feel humble and proud as well when my students finish the school, pass, and then become professional nurses like me. i also feel proud when they greet me (when i see them around) and say "thank you mam."

Surely a selfless act. Good for you. I am not a hands on person...ideas are more my realm of things. So if you need brain storming I can volunteer. In my youth I did a lot of volunteer work...mostly building and supporting temples...close to 50 years or so.

That's nice to hear. If I will re-volunteer, I will ask your professional expertise. For now, I still need to be with my family.

@Gita17112016 It is not in disability care, my friend. The organization has other programs like livelihood. I think you can be in this field of expertise.

Volunteering is great work and you can earn a lot from it because money isn't the only thing we can earn in this world. I volunteer at the animal shelter, donate blood regularly, set up/ran a few blood drives myself in high school, in college we do service/volunteer work all the time like yesterday was Mountain Day of service were student, professors, staff members, and community members sign up for different volunteer jobs around campus/town to do. My friends and I have cleaned up the Elk River for three years now and it feels great when you fill up multiple trash bags in just a few hours even though it is sad that there is that much trash that gets washed down the river. This weekend my friend and I are going to the animal shelter to help clean the place up, clean the animals, walk the dogs, and transport the animals for an adoption event they are holding in a town away. We also put together shoe boxes at Christmas for kids in children's homes, we collect old clothing especially coats/hoodies/gloves/socks and all other warm clothes since we live int he mountains and we get a lot of snow and cold weather and 2 annual food drives.

I agree. It is a selfless act. We can more experience in dealing with different sets of people. The good deed cannot be measured. It is a good thing that you are actively involved in this kind of activities.

@Shavkat I enjoy doing it because I was fortunate to be given a pretty good life by my parents. Plus my college's motto is in the mountains for the mountains of the mountains so they are all for given back and experiencing nature and life.

@CaseyRoss9966 I do think it is a nice motto. I also like the motto of the organization that I work with. "Sharing skills, changing lives."

I think volunteerism is a beautiful thing. I have worked as a volunteer with 'Times of India '. It was a mission to educate underprivileged children started by the news paper authority.

That's nice. I was being offered to have a volunteer work in India before. At the last minute, they changed their mind. But I am still hoping to have volunteerism in your country.

It was under the umbrella of USSR. The remnants are still there. It seems that the country was so slow in progress.
