Volunteers do not necessarily have the time, they just have the heart. As said by Albert Einstein, only a life lived for others is worth living. Volunteering at a corporate level gives the employees a sense of purpose other than their stipulated work. Manthan-SVK is an initiative by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan which is working for the benefit of underprivileged children of the society. Manthan provides a platform for the corporate volunteering. One such esteemed organization involved in volunteering and donation at Nawada, Haryana branch of Manthan is Bank of America. The volunteers not only donate and visit the centre, but also indulge in teaching and holding activities for the children. On 25th April 2019, a team of seniors visited Nawada centre and also gifted a printer for the centre in presence of Sadhvi Deepa Bharti Ji and Sadhvi Mahalaxmi Bharti Ji as Manthan SVK, DJJS representatives.
A total of 12 volunteers were present to teach the children. They also held multiple activities for the children.
