The Covid-19 pandemic has brought humans closer to each other and, working together will see the defeat of this disease soon. Along with the need for wider thinking on the new concepts of economic development, a circular economy, greener alternatives for power, transport and industry processes and an economic reset, people all over the world have experienced the need for stronger connections and solidarity. This has ignited a bigger and more urgent need around giving back to society.
Giving back is important; it makes people stronger, builds hope and, with it, the prospect of a brighter future. Starting with small things like being there for a friend in need, or greater things, like helping realise the dream of building a new hospital in a remote area in Africa – there is joy to be found in giving back to society.
When someone is stressed, or something terrible has happened, the natural human reaction is to reach out to a loved one, usually family members, for emotional support. When there is no family or the family is unable to help, other people can step in to support. Giving back to society is nothing less than supporting people in need through their ups and downs, just as they will support others through theirs. Humans are one family.
The importance of giving back to society can’t be understated and it boosts the morale of the people involved. The secret of living a meaningful life? Giving and sharing.
Giving back to society, having the desire to change people’s lives for the better and lifelong patronage of art resulted in the establishment of the Esharelife Foundation (short Esharelife), which has a mission to share life in the digital era.
Founded by a successful entrepreneur and CEO of a family run global business, Esharelife is a charity, officially registered in the UK by the Charity Commission of England and Wales with offices in London. Its ultimate goal is to create new opportunities and support existing ones for people living in the most disadvantaged areas of the world. It works to help them lift themselves out of poverty by empowering them to build a path towards a self-sufficient future. It helps the most vulnerable people to create a brighter future where they live, thus contributing to the development of their local communities and promoting local economic contribution as a real alternative to internal or international migration.
