“Citizenship is the chance to make a difference to the place where you belong” - Charles Handy
Making a difference in the community we live in, as well as in the communities where we grew up, through care, support and collaboration is one of the key tenets of Kadavu organization. By involving our active youth members in various citizenship engagements, we raise empowered and socially responsible future leaders who can shape a brighter tomorrow for all of us! We make a better world when all of us work towards a just and equitable society. Together, we can make a difference!
KADAVU members are actively involved in serving our community. The Kadavu volunteering team works to make a difference in the community we live in, as well as in the communities where we grew up. Care, support, and collaboration are the key tenets of Kadavu Volunteering Team
