In a world often consumed by self-interest, volunteering stands as a powerful way to break free from the mundane and make a lasting impact. Whether it’s lending a helping hand to those in need, supporting a cause close to your heart, or contributing to the betterment of society, becoming a volunteer is an extraordinary opportunity for personal growth and social change. This article delves into the transformative journey of becoming a volunteer and explores the numerous benefits it offers to both individuals and the communities they serve.
In the 21st century, life moves on; individuals move to cities, countries, towns, or villages; team GB GWM noticed that there was no work for the disabled communities who have been excluded from society. Society is defined as a social product created by the actions of individuals that then exert a coercive social force back on those individuals. Through their collective consciousness, Durkheim argued, human beings become aware of one another as social beings, not just animals. Can a society prosper if some people are excluded from social life?
As witnessed during this pandemic, we all need doctors, especially our disabled community. For example, during the first wave of COVID-19 in Gilgit Baltistan, two doctors helped us identify a Ghizer patient who was hypoglycemic and had some form of Autism or mental health issues. The patient’s family desperately needed medications ranging from 25,000 PKR to 30,000 PKR.
The Gilgit-Baltistan’s Goodwill Movement GB GWM is an organization working on community and skills-based development for persons with disabilities in Gilgit-Baltistan.
This recently registered organization is being run by persons with disabilities, primarily students keen to showcase their work on a national, regional, and international stage. Today, we are joined by Ghulam Muhammad Baig, CEO of GB GWM, Farhan Baig, President, and Abrar Ahmed, General Secretary.
Muhammad Ali once said ‘ If my mind can conceive it if my heart can believe it–then I can achieve it.” Of course, a boxer from an ethnic minority in the USA was unthinkable in the 1950s and 60s America, but no matter what his circumstances were, he always fought on; that\\\’s what we need to do in our society.
With all due respect to Amjad Hussain, the Leader of the Opposition, for raising a voice about persons with disablities, we do not accept the fact that special persons should only receive a stipend of 2000 Pakistani rupees (10$) per month. This is a highly irresponsible comment to say within these economic circumstances. Instead of giving us 10$ per month, why does the government not introduce educational, skills-based programs that we can use to empower ourselves.
A society can not flourish without persons with disablities contributing to it. However, persons with disablities in the developed world are not disabled; in fact, some have even addressed them as differently-abled. Therefore, regardless of the semantics, persons with disablities should have the right to education, whether from Ghizer, Hunza, Astore, or Gilgit. The Government cannot be just blamed for disability exclusion; CIVIL SOCIETY IS ALSO RESPONSIBLE. For example, in Q2 of 2021, Disablity employment increased within the UK
