Before volunteering to become involved anywhere, we strongly urge you to discover your strengths and talents (if you don’t already know for sure) by completing a few online tools that you will find links to from this site. If you would like to find out about the Gallup Strengthfinder test, click here. In addition to this, the COLAB Foundation from time to time hosts equipping events that will help you to discover and develop your unique talents. At these gatherings, you will also have a chance to meet the leaders of the various social action initiatives.
Once you are sure about what your strengths, talents and passions are, it becomes so much easier to know which direction you should go in! Deploy your talents to make an impact on people’s lives by joining in serving alongside others with one of the accredited social action partners that you see on this community.
At the COLAB Foundation, we are passionate proponents of Compassionate Capitalism. If you have never heard that term, let me explain. To start with, it means to honour and love human endeavour and to encourage people and businesses to dream big and become everything that God has destined them to be. Compassionate Capitalism therefore endorses and affirms the pursuit of legitimate and sustainable financial profit that does not harm people or the environment. The concept simultaneously recognizes and affirms that economic and social inequalities are injustices that affect us all and need urgent correction. At the COLAB Foundation, we support and participate in social justice initiatives because we want to, not because we have to. If you share our commitment to Compassionate Capitalism, please join in with us by giving regularly from your business or personal financial resources.
