Topic: EVENT ORGANISATION
"Young SVP has helped me realise that being poor is not just about struggling financially. People can be poor with regards to having no friends or family, no support and no hope for the future. As a member of Young SVP, I've learned a lot about organising events and visitations that address these issues in the community. I've learned that I love making a positive difference in the world. The work we've done may only be at a local level, but there is a great sense of satisfaction that comes with it."
