The Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation today provided a platform for its volunteers to share their experiences and inform people on how their role values human dignity.
Commemorating International Volunteer Day, Vodafone Acting Chief Marketing Officer, Shailendra Prasad says volunteering can help people gain valuable skills, experiences and even boosts confidence.
“I wish to highlight one thing, that there is a misconception about volunteers, that they are people who do not have a job, who have spare time on their hand and just want to look busy. At the end of the day, volunteers are also human beings, they have certain needs and wants and families to look after.”
Vodafone ATH Fiji Executive, Ambalika Devi says every year different number of volunteers help various organizations.
“The foundation is very much passionate about the volunteers because we have seen, that these are the movers and shakers, they don’t have funds but they have the time and effort to bring about change in the lives of people in communities.”
Some volunteers who are involved with the foundation for years say this builds a positive reputation.
