My Volunteer Experience; Maud Fugar writes

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” – Leo Buscaglia

Grace Opoku texted me one fateful day to have a conversation with me. Through our chit-chat, she shared the vision of TSF with me. Knowing me for what I love doing; ie impacting lives, she thought it a better idea for me to join the foundation and contribute my quota too. I did not hesitate either and that is how my journey with The Shrewd Foundation started back in 2017.

I have loved every bit of the experience up to date; joining other team members in sharing love with the street kids through the streetmas moments, and visiting some of the kids on the then 2IS project while they were in school, just to mention a few.

It actually hasn’t been easy combining my personal life and other things I do but then, it is indeed fulfilling for me because I derive happiness from these little acts of kindness.

I encourage someone reading this post to make a conscious effort to put a smile on the faces of others. It can be anything at all but just remember; volunteerism is an act of heroism. Kindness, like a boomerang, always returns.
