JKYF’s Capacity Building Prog concludes at Kulgam
Srinagar: In order to inculcate a sense of understanding about basic tenets of social service and build comprehensive capacity among volunteers, the J&K Yateem Foundation conducted a three-day Capacity Building Programme at its orphanage BAITUL HILAL at Chawalgam in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district.
The three-day volunteers’ workshop was part of JKYF’s continuing efforts to sensitize the volunteers on the ground about various issues and challenges related to voluntary social service in Jammu & Kashmir.
In view of the COVID 19 pandemic, all the participants followed basic SOPs including wearing face masks, maintaining adequate physical
distancing and ensuring thorough hand washing and proper sanitization of the venue as well.
Speakers urged the volunteers to adopt novel methodologies in the field of social service to meet the latest challenges in the field.
Describing humility, sincerity, wisdom & selflessness as the basic tenets to serve humanity, the speakers enjoined upon the volunteers to learn and equip themselves with the knowledge, methodologies and technologies to cope up with the emerging contemporary challenges, issues and problems in the social service sector.
Addressing the gathering of about 180 senior volunteers from various parts of J&K including far-flung & hilly districts like Doda, Kishtwar, Poonch & Rajouri, the speakers appreciated the sincere spirit of volunteers to expend time, energy and own resources to join heads and hands for creating enabling environment for ensuring tangible socio-economic development to economically weaker sections.
Speakers urged the participants to be proactive in building their capacities as volunteers to help the poorest among the poor and needy in a coordinated professional manner.
