Doing voluntary work sometimes calls on a person with a caring and loving heart. I know how challenging it is to wake up, get ready and go to the workplace where you don't even get a cent! Let me share this with everyone who is reading this expository narration. I volunteered as a library and computer assistant for almost three years without getting paid at one of the public libraries in Mpumalanga province. My hands and heart through its community manager, Ms Mpho Nyaka prophesied this submissive mindset! Towards the end of this year, I was invited by My hands and heart to participate in the volunteering project as an Ambassador for the NYDA. For me, this is a big achievement and a rewarding sensory experience.
