Those interested in bringing about a difference in the lives of underprivileged, physically and mentally challenged children can certainly participate as volunteer at Ek Kadam.
Every voice counts while campaigning to make a difference to children’s lives. Governments can be influenced and for building opinion of the public campaigning can be done in the most powerful way. Every person could do his or her bit by identifying children who do not attend school due to lack of teachers. Volunteers can voice their demand for new teacher recruitment even if it means contacting authorities within the government.
The entire system can be brought to task for impacting lives of children in a positive way. Efforts put in by volunteers will enable the underprivileged children get higher quality education. A good deed to society on the whole is done by touching the lives of needy children. Changes brought about are positive and permanent, even if it takes some time.
It is not the effort of just one single person that counts at Ek Kadam. It is a group effort in volunteer campaigns. It is not possible for anyone to do anything in isolation.
