As many of you know, a few weeks ago I started my new internship at the Global Sustainability Foundation (GSF). This fairly new UN foundation functions to support the international community’s development goals while promoting economic, sociocultural and environmental sustainability.
“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
– Mahatma Ghandi
Community service is defined as voluntary work intended to help people in a particular area. I believe that this definition misses the true meaning: that the volunteer expects no rewards from their work.
