I learnt a lot from the community service. In the previous years, community service has always been experienced by students of the University of Different Departments. In all endeavors of life together, oneness and cooperation is the key to achieving a collective goal. Our community service was made successful because we worked as a team to achieve our goal.
I appreciate the school management that made it possible for me to engage in this exercise/project of the community service which has given me the opportunity to serve humanity. Also thanks to my supervisors who stood under the sun directing and correcting me on how the work should be done.
