Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh,
This week marks National Volunteer Week! Since its inception, the Jakara Movement has been driven by volunteers. Today,with staff on board - we are still largely a volunteer-run organization. We could not be where we are today without the volunteers that are the very core of the movement. We value each and every one of you and want to take this opportunity to appreciate you and all of your amazing work.
We’ve seen the organization grow over the past 14 years because of people like YOU! Whether you’ve come to help at Jakara Juniors, a seva event, or spent countless hours behind the scenes in making the Lalkaar conference a success, we want you to know it doesn’t go unnoticed. You take time away from full-time jobs, your academic career, your family and friends to give back to your community. It is inspiring to see such passion, commitment, and humility in our volunteers. We want to celebrate our volunteers’ dedication to helping others, taking action in their respective communities, and encouraging others to join the movement. Your example inspires us and shows us the act of seva (selfless service) that our Gurus demonstrated is still alive today. We are honored to work with you.
Together, we can be at the center of social change; together we can turn ideas into reality; together, we are the movement.
In chardi kala,
Iqbal, Robby, and Palvinder
Jakara Movement Staff
