I realized I've not written a single post on L.O.V.E. (Lifting Others through Volunteer Engagement). Since L.O.V.E. will be further developed into an annual project, here I write for a proper documentation.
L.O.V.E. which was held successfully on 25 January 2011 by AIESEC in USM in collaboration with The Right Livelihood College.
The objective of L.O.V.E. is to provide youths with one-stop volunteering opportunities to established NGOs in Penang and hence make a positive impact to this society.
On that particular day, more than 500 youths signed up as volunteers which far exceeded our expectation. Besides, many first time activity was brought in to USM like "Free Hugs" which advocates peace and understanding among mankind.
L.O.V.E. Community Service Festival was made possible because of this amazing team and support from AIESEC and USM authorities. Apart from that, our perfect advisor Dato' Anwar Fazal and partners from The Right Livelihood College played an imperative role in this success.
Orange has become L.O.V.E. tag color and Tuesday will be the day which L.O.V.E. Community Service Festival will be held every year. Deputy Vice Chancellor of USM, Prof Dato' Omar Osman has given it a green light for event next year and the ball has passed to the next committee team to make this event greater and even more successful.
