Why Volunteering should be taken up when you can?
A personal report from Enoch Toppo
It has been more than 6 months now that I have been giving my time to Die Bremer Suppenengel e.V. , Kirchweg, in serving food (Soups, salads, and sandwiches) and beverages (tea, coffee, juice) to the homeless and unemployed people of Bremen and around.
These months have been one of my most enriching personal experiences as an International volunteer. Working with so many interesting people, I realize, I have now developed more patience, more sense of empathy, more discipline, more people-handling skills, cooking skills, and eventually more emotional intelligence. These are some skills which were never taught in all my years of studying in a formal educational system. Apart from these skills, being a foreigner, I have also improved considerably in my German communication skills and in turn, have learnt a lot about the German culture through the various interactions with all the people I have been able to meet in this duration.
I believe, each of us, students, should always take up this opportunity of volunteering with the underprivileged sections of society, when we are blessed with considerable hours of free time, as it will definitely change our perception towards people and life as a whole. This experience will make us a better human being, something that I believe, the current world actually needs more of. These experiences would also help us become better leaders in our individual lives and help us become a part of a cause that would be bigger than ourselves.

Ehrenamtlich engagieren in Bremen
Weshalb sich eine ehrenamtliche Tätigkeit in jedem Fall lohnt
Es kann sich bereits während des Studiums lohnen! Ehrenamtliche Tätigkeiten werden z.B. bei der Bewerbung um PROMOS Fördermittel für Auslandsaufenthalte im Rahmen eines HSB Studiums angerechnet.
Wenn das Engagement interkulturellen Bezug hat, kann es auch auf das Zertifikat Interkulturelle Kompetenz vom ZIM angerechnet werden.
Auch im Lebenslauf sollte ehrenamtliches Engagement gelistet werden. Viele Arbeitgeber schätzen es, wenn sich Studierende für eine gute Sache engagieren, Verantwortung übernehmen und aktiv tätig werden.
