My Volunteer Experience; Samuel Nuamah-Amoabeng writes

Walking on the streets of Accra being chased around by these street kids who are seeking money to buy food may sound or look irritating to you because you feel they are dirty and shouldn’t come close.

Making a difference or a name in this life doesn’t necessarily have to be through gaining big academic titles or positions but the number of lives you have touched. My little experience in volunteering with The Shrewd Foundation has made me agree with the famous quote by Wess Stafford “If we nurture the dreams of children, the world will be blessed. If we destroy them, the world is doomed!”

In 2017, I joined this noble foundation with little knowledge about volunteering. Till I joined, I didn’t know people are really going through hell to make ends meet and get shelter. The children living on the streets have great potential and therefore they need help to make the world blessed. I have had great moments since I decided to avail myself to put smiles on the beautiful faces of street children. TSF has opened me up to great opportunities, and networks and helped me build advocacy skills.

As said by famous statesman, Frederick Douglass that ‘“it is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”, I entreat all to support and make a difference in the lives of street children. The impact made in their lives today whether negative or positive will definitely manifest in the future.
