Harleen Kaur, a university student and activist, describes the challenges and learnings about volunteering in the office of the nonprofit newspaper Groundcover News:
I have realized what a great effort and passion it takes to maintain such dedication. Even when the work is this difficult, I have never seen a hint of despair or a sense of wanting to give up.
According to their website, Groundcover News, located in Michigan, is one of many publications that “exist in cities all over the United States in an effort to raise awareness of the plight of homeless and combat the increase in poverty.”
To serve selflessly and to aid those who are less fortunate is part of the Sikh ethos, and so it is inspiring to read about Harleen Kaur’s work in this regard. Read more about Harleen Kaur’s experience and the nonprofit she supports at the Groundcover News blog.
