Being able to volunteer means you’re capable of sharing your time, skills, or other resources to those who are in need of help.

Ang pagvovolunteer ay isang mabuting gawain – karaniwang nakatutulong ito sa komunidad at sa paghubog ng pagkatao at kakayahan ng isang volunteer. Subalit may mga pagkakataon na ang pagvovolunteer ay hindi nakatutulong. Paano nga ba nangyayari na ang isang mabuting hangarin ay hindi nakabubuti? Continue reading
