Utumishi kwa wote (Service to all)

By Maria Mumoki

Do a little big thing to make a difference. Volunteer.

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

No matter who you are or where you’re from, everyone has the power to do something that improves the life of another. Whether it’s pledging to help one person or working on a project that benefits a whole community, every contribution makes a difference.

The spirit of service has been pivotal in the success of some of the most generous philanthropists of our time such as Bill and Melinda Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and George Mitchell. Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

Maji Mazuri gives us all a chance to play a part through volunteering. There are plenty of ways each of us, irrespective of our bank account balance, can make a difference as huge as, if not more, than that of the philanthropists mentioned above.

You can contribute your time, talent, expertise and even love through Maji Mazuri.

Using your talents to volunteer not only makes you a better person, it will take us a step further towards a better society and a better world. Serve someone today and volunteer at Maji Mazuri.
