The secret of living is giving

We are delighted to share a blog written by student Anoushka Jadhav from Global Indian International School PG Smart Campus, who is part of a team delivering a Global Goals project for the 2019-20 Global Goals Competition.

Their project is among over 957 social action projects currently running as part of the GSL movement and we are excited to be supporting them to design and lead positive social change in their community. 

Giving is not a duty but it is a privilege.

Project Overview

We are Hunger Warriors, grade 8 students, have come together to work towards minimizing one of the most relevant issues – World Hunger. We are a passionate team, together in a journey towards our common goal of achieving a hunger-free world. Through this project, we aim to create awareness amongst people through various mediums to reach out to the maximum number of people.

Personally, this experience gave me an opportunity to comprehend the issues faced by a wide spectrum of people, to know the hardships they have gone through. Their personal stories of struggle to make ends meet in spite of the difficulties inspired me to be thankful for the blessings that I enjoy and will be taking these learnings to view the issue with empathy.

Our Journey

Over the course of my journey, I have grown to welcome others and collaborate with individuals with different personalities. Moreover, through these experiences, I have been able to grasp that everyone in the team has their own set of skills and that I must be able to make the best use of these skills, and accept others for who they are. It is vital to coordinate and communicate via emails to our school and teachers involved to keep everyone updated on the ongoing activities within the school and outside was my responsibility.

We conducted a PowerPoint presentation in our school assembly to create awareness about the extent of world hunger. I was responsible for creating the presentation and the quiz. This event required extensive research and analysis to convince our peers about the importance of food and avoid food wastage. This opportunity helped me enhance my presentation skills and also made me realize the importance of listening.

Lastly, visits to orphanages and charitable organizations made me a stronger and determined person. It helped me realize to be grateful for the things I have and helped me contribute with more dedication to the welfare of society.

The Next Chapter

My journey to date has been an illuminating and fruitful experience. This opportunity instills many skills like leadership and management in young adults. I would highly suggest participating in related ventures to the people of this generation. We plan to work harder to accomplish our goal and pursue our action plan.

The 2019-20 GSL Global Goals Competition is now open and runs until June 2020. If you belong to one of the 700+ teams of students currently delivering a social action project as part of the competition we would love to hear from you and feature your blog and project photos on our website to inspire others.
