Navinder Grover kicks off ⁦@GurdwaraAid⁩’s National Gurdwara Conference 2022, reminding us this is a learning environment and that as well as some great speakers there is an opportunity to exchange know how with peers from gurdwaras and other Sikh charities across the UK. ImageImage
Mandip Singh of @GurdwaraAid reminds us that the theme today is #Safeguarding and #Disputes and that there will be an opportunity to enjoy similar sessions at regional events including one in the #WestMidlands. Image
Mandip also speaks touchingly about Gurdeep Singh, Co-founder of @GurdwaraAid, who tragically passed away recently. Image

Good afternoon @Conservatives👋

In the last week myself & countless colleagues + 1000s of wonderful volunteers have been BOMBARDED by requests to DROP EVERYTHING & help w/ the mission for all adults to #GetBoostedNow, many of us giving up much needed days off.

Volunteers are needed for everything from car park attendants, to clearer uppers, through IT/admin experts to clinicians….there is a job for literally anyone (other than Mark Francois😳), who can spare a few hours!

So, could I make a polite request & ask (with absolutely no due respect) that rather than offering 👏👏👏s with one hand & the perfect storm of unmitigated uncontrolled #COVID19 spread & an #NHS in crisis with the other…

There are 18 young adults across the Nation who are training to be model citizens. For a month, they have worked with their local governments to uplift the civic standards of their neighborhoods.
They are the Youth vertical of the Solve Movement! Working endlessly with our mentors, this group of leaders is training to build the future of the country. Are you still reading this?

Earlier today we were in downtown #yyc handing out water & gatorade and fruit, when we decided to stop & have a break by the Cat Cafe...when we came upon a senior lady rummaging through the city's garbage bins.

#Yyccc #Calgary #Alberta #Canada #SeniorLiving #seniorcare #Seniors
We thought she was looking for bottles to turn in for money but we were wrong. She was looking for both bottles & she was also taking food out of the bins & putting it in her cart.

As soon as we saw that we went over to offer her our help.

#Help #Community #Compassion #BeKind
We went over, asked if we could get her a cold drink & a snack & asked her if she'd like to join us on our break.

She accepted. We went into the coffee shop across from the Cat Cafe (Forgot Name), grabbed some drinks & snacks and sat down in the shade across the street. #Hope

#Volunteering When people wanted me to describe in a phrase - what can prevent Volunteering Fatigue (unexpected extension of time devoted to a passionate cause, as against paid volunteering) - It is Disapassionate Attachment. Everything other factor is subordinated to the Cause
#Volunteering More often than not, especially in the current round of Volunteering, Young, energetic and passionate volunteers never needed any motivation as they are already inspired and self-fired. But those get fatigued are those who want to deliver perfection and fail
#Volunteering Whenever these inspirational gems talk to me about how to avoid failure in the task - I only request them not to aim for delivering perfect service, but aim to deliver acceptable service. Because what the beneficiary needs simply is unpredictable (COVID19 context)

#VolunteerRecognitionDay #Volunteer
స్వచ్ఛంద సేవకులను ఆంగ్లంలో వాలంటీర్స్ అంటారు. వీరు చేసే సేవను స్వచ్ఛంద సేవ (Volunteering) అంటారు.

సేవ చేసి డబ్బులు తీసుకున్నా... ప్రతి ఫలం పొందినా దాన్ని స్వచ్ఛంద సేవ అనలేం.. స్వచ్ఛంద సేవా అనేది దేన్నీ ఆశించకుండా చేసే పని.
సమాజం పై ప్రేమ బాధ్యత ఉన్నవాళ్లు తోటివారికి సహాయ పడాలన్న ఆలోచన ఉన్నవారు ఎవరి బలవంతము లేకుండా స్వతహాగా వాలంటీర్లు గా పనిచేస్తుంటారు...

స్వచ్ఛంద సేవ(#Volunteering)లోని సారం జీవితాన్ని ఇష్టపూర్వకంగా జీవించడమే. మన జీవితంలో ప్రతీ అంశంలో కూడా మనం ఒక వాలంటీర్ గా ఉండడం.
ఒక వాలంటీర్ అంటే... అతన్ని ఎవరో ఇక్కడ వల వేసి పట్టుకున్నారు కాబట్టి వారు ఈ పనులన్నీ చెయ్యడం లేదు. వీరు అందుకు సుముఖంగా ఉన్నారు. వేరు నా కోరిక ఏమిటీ ... అని ఆలోచించరు. అతను ఏది అవసరమో అది చేస్తారు. అలాంటి పరిస్థితుల వల్ల మీరు స్వేచ్ఛా జీవిగా మారతారు...

Let talk about #skills!!

Yesterday I was speaking to a group of 10 #youths in the university between 100 - 300 level.

I shared what I would have done if I was to go back to my 100 days.

This trend is my personal views on how I could have been better.

I got no regret

1/9
In my 100 level days, I should've engaged in extracurricular activities - community development clubs, leadership, mentorship, problem-solving and capacity building.

Ps: While working, I discovered teamwork and leadership are essential skills needed to thrive at work.

2/9
In my 200 level days, I should've engaged in passion discovery and relate my passion with my course of study. I will learn the act of turning passion into business and business into profit.

If I've found my gift earlier, I won't struggle to learn web design 4 years ago.

Before my next #COVIDVaccination clinic volunteer shift this week(end) I wanted to reflect on my experiences from last week. I've been thinking a lot about it and trying to figure out what to say. I'll try to keep this 🧵brief and give the highlights
1/n
I had been waiting for the day I could work a #COVIDVaccination clinic for a year. Since this #pandemic started I've been ready to help get doses into arms, whenever safety and efficacy proved enough for an EUA.
2/n
Through 3 shifts I had a smile on my face and in my heart. I was so happy to greet every person and send them to that coveted chair where a nurse would administer their vaccine.

For my team, I greeted and checked paperwork on 250 ppl (yes I'm keeping count).

Greetings from South Australia! Due to a COVID-19 cluster the events this week I was planning to tweet from in-person COVID safe events will instead be covered virtually. Because my mum is a high-risk case, I'm happy to be at home to keep the community safe. #StaySafeStayHome
You can normally follow me at @melaniejward. I tweet to help boost events across STEM in #space, #archaeology & #tech, share events I organise as well as interesting news I come across all while balancing #ADHD, #volunteering, job hunting and uni work.

My mask has @ISUnet's logo. I'm a proud scholarship student from this year's @isu_shssp. The masks are also a thank you gift, as part of #ISUNET's scholarship drive to support others attend so they too can recognise their potential in space. #ASC20

Inter Services Selection Board (ISSB), a #Thread

Myths & Rumors
--------------------------

A lot of rumors circulate around this selection and assessment centre e.g,

🔻 Only reserved for wards of Soldiers or those having a military background.

(n/1)
🔹 Totally wrong rather many wards of Soldiers / Senior officers (including Jernail de Puttar) get Not-Recommended.

🔻 Ethnicity or background matters in selection.
🔹Army damn cares about who you are & where you come from. Many senior officers or Influentials don't..

(n/2)
...send their kids or discourage them out of fear of 'Rejection' primarily they know their kids better (pun intended).

🔻 Preparing from ISSB Training Academies get immediate rejection.
🔹 This is #True, reason is ISSB has a whole paraphernalia of assessment officers..

Our mission at the Kids Being Kids Foundation is to improve the welfare and #development of the most #vulnerablechildren through play and extra-curricular activities.
A part of this is their physical #environment, which studies have shown profoundly influences developmental outcomes including academic achievement, cognitive, social and emotional #development.
One of the #vulnerable groups we want to support are the #Children of the Wesley School for the #hearingimpaired in Surulere. Their #landscaping is in dire need of a facelift.

Thread: #COVID2019 #Kolkata #Volunteering

Hi all, here's a map of Kolkata with wards marked out. 1-141

The current lockdown might last long & we have to prepare for the situation. 1 way to approach this problem is decentralisation. Stay with me. (1/n)
The map here lists all the wards of Kolkata with boundaries. We form ward level information & volunteer units. Add information about each ward, & some people from each ward to take ownership of their respective wards. This will help us resolve issues locally. (2/n)
Use this live map below to identify the ward you live in, and contact me so that i can share with you a map of your ward with you.

Then, you start adding information on essential services such as pharmacies, groceries that are currently servicing. (3/n)
