Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity where an individual or group provides services for no financial gain “to benefit another person, group or organization”. Volunteering is also renowned for skill development and is often intended to promote goodness or to improve human quality of life. Volunteering may have positive benefits for the volunteer as well as for the person or community served. It is also intended to make contacts for possible employment. Many volunteers are specifically trained in the areas they work, such as medicine, education or emergency rescue. Others serve on an as-needed basis, such as in response to a natural disaster. Lakshyam also deals in initiating volunteering programs in India.
Though known to be India’s Industrial Capital, Delhi is also home to an estimated 3.9 million people living in slums. These include refugees from various neighboring countries, as well as thousands of Indians who moved to Delhi in search of work and livelihood. Hence, Lakshyam has come forward in appeal to the rest of the world, for their support, and efforts in making India, and the world, a more habitable place.
