ICS; AN EYE OPENING AND A REWARDING EXPERIENCE


It’s been six weeks since we started our program with International Service. I will start with a timely quote, by Henry Ford who said that
“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young”.
Volunteering with International Citizen Service for me is a great opportunity to learn, share, experience, and practice what I have learned. Partnering with Create Change Organization has really taught me a lot about the importance of education and what rural dwellers actually go through every blessed day.
Even though we still have six weeks left of our placement on this program, I have realized that one should not underestimate his or her ability to make someone else`s life BETTER, even if you don’t know it .The past weeks were very interesting, we have carried out a lot of our project plans which include: Community Mapping, Administration of questionnaires, Career Development and Radio Sensitization etc.
