Help improving lives

Main aim of the charity

The main aim of my charity is to empower and improve lives by imparting knowledge through counseling and classes.

How the employee got involved and why

The knowledge I gained through DHL training programs empowered me to make a difference in my career as well as my personal life. It convinced me that such knowledge would help people to make a difference in their life too. Hence I was looking for a platform where I could help my fellow beings to improve lives. In my search I found Pravasi Guidance Forum (PGF) in Bahrain and I became an active member since 2017. PGF serves the community in the Kingdom of Bahrain in the counseling needs and personality development of individuals. The suicide rate of expatriates in Bahrain was very high from 2001 to 2010. With the sincere and earnest efforts of its councilors, the organization could reduce the rate of suicide next to zero recently. The number of addicted adolescents was also alarming. The organization has saved at least 100 people from committing suicide, from family break-down and number of students from addiction to alcohol and drugs through proper free counseling. It conducts various awareness and personality development programs for various sectors of the community with the help of its volunteers. The organization has so far graduated 250 plus counselors with Diploma in clinical counseling to work as bare-foot counselors on a 24x7 basis. The love, care and aids given by this organization to the needy people in the community is praise-worthy.

What work does the employee do for charity?

I read about this organization through print and air media. Accordingly I attended a training program in professional counseling with them and got graduated as a counselor to serve the community. I am an active member of PGF free social counseling group. I also conduct free awareness sessions for students and families.
