“I am constantly aware of my responsibility to contribute back to the society that has given me so much. I have also learnt that every small bit we do can make a difference in someone’s life. What drew me to SVP in the first place was the realization that if my own small contribution could make a difference, the combined impact could be much larger if I linked up my effort with those of other people having the same mission. I think SVP provides the perfect platform for this by bringing together many different individuals, often geographically separated, yet committed to addressing and solving complex social issues.
I feel the biggest commitment I can make to SVP is my time which, as a result of all that I’m involved in, is my most valuable commodity. Being a part of SVP gives me the personal sense of fulfillment of being part of a group that gets together to make a difference a in the lives of people we support by making them self-reliant. At the same time, it also allows me the opportunity to interact with some great likeminded people I would not have know otherwise.”
