Another lady, man, or kid is sexually assaulted every two minutes. The consequences can be catastrophic, but there are things you can do to help.
Anwojue Hope Foundation is offering you the opportunity to volunteer. A few minutes of your time can assist someone in regaining years of their life.
Why should you volunteer?
IT’S BENEFICIAL TO YOUR HEALTH
In recent years, there has been an increase in study examining the mental-health advantages of volunteer work.
Acts of doing good for others seem more vital than ever, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, where mental wellbeing and mental health are so extensively discussed, and the impacts are felt in various ways.
It has been claimed that doing good for others interrupts tension-producing patterns in the brain and replaces them with a sense of purpose, positive emotion, and higher confidence levels, and that people who volunteer feel more satisfied with their lives and consider their health to be better in general than those who do not.
EMPLOYABILITY IS IMPROVED.
When you volunteer with us, you will be able to improve your career abilities. Volunteering is a fantastic method to advance your profession. When interviewing candidates, recruiters place a larger value on volunteer work than on personal appearance.
YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
When you volunteer with us, you will gain real-world experience and have an influence as a volunteer.
By volunteering abroad or here in Nigeria, you may make a difference in the kind of society and world you want to live in.
Whichever cause you choose to support, you’ll have the chance to be a part of something bigger than yourself and contribute to good causes all around the world.
Making a difference in women’s empowerment or community development is one example.
NEW SKILLS WILL BE LEARNED.
Volunteering in an assistive field can help you develop new skills. Employers are eager to hire volunteers for a variety of reasons.
Employers seek people with a diverse combination of hard and soft skills, and volunteering provides you with numerous opportunity to expand your personal and professional skill set.
On a volunteer program, you’ll be confronted with problem-solving challenges on a daily basis, as well as having to collaborate with a team of diverse personalities, all while adjusting to survive outside of your comfort zone.
This experience will aid in the development of your teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills.
YOU WILL MAKE INTERESTING CONNECTIONS.
When you volunteer with us, you can form lifelong friendships with other volunteers.
Volunteering allows you to meet people from various backgrounds. It allows you to develop relationships with people who can have a long-term impact on you.
You might make a new best friend, find a future business partner, or have a chat that inspires you to make a change.
YOU WILL ENJOY YOURSELF
Volunteering is not only enjoyable, but it often leads to lifelong friendships.
Volunteering is a serious commitment that requires the utmost respect, but it’s also a lot of fun!
It’s a way to meet new people, learn about different cultures, and travel to new locations.
You can go to Idanre hills in Ondo state, Erin Ijesha falls in Osun state, or even beach parties in elgushi during your free time. The options are limitless.
When you combine this with all of the other wonderful reasons to volunteer, you’ll have an incredible experience that will last a lifetime.
