The word ‘Give’ in the context of ‘Giving Back’ has a very interesting meaning to it. According to Etymonline, “The Middle English noun yeve (Give), meant "that which is given or offered; a contribution of money," often as tribute, or in expectation of something in return.”
‘Giving back’ usually supersedes with the word society. Ever since, people realized that humanity could make a great difference, the race has been helping communities by empowering them. Similarly, Akshaya Patra has been feeding the children in India to ensure they do not experience classroom hunger.
If you have been thinking of giving back to society, now is the time! We collated three important benefits of giving back and here they are:
You will help someone grow
As an individual, you may want to give back to society by paying someone’s school fees. Many families who come from difficult background are burdened by their children’s schools fees and unable to pay, they choose to send them on work. This could be your chance to give back.
|Education for children|
You will build stronger communities
Among many activities, Akshaya Patra regularly organises Health Awareness Programmes for school children with the help of corporates; these programmes include discussions and hygiene kit distribution.
And finally, you will spread happiness!
This is probably the most important reason for the giver and the receiver; happiness. The experience of giving back to society keeps you content! The inner joy of having transformed a life, without expecting returns, is a feeling that words cannot describe.
As you call it a day, think of reasons why you should give back to society and when you do, Akshaya Patra’s children will be waiting for your help.
