Each member of the society has his own responsibility to his community, where this responsibility gets represented in giving back to the community through volunteering work. Fortunately, we have a long list of volunteers, in which Abdullah Mohammed AI Salmani is very prominent. In addition to being a professional Jiu-Jitsu athlete, he is playing an active role in volunteering services in the last couple of years. Let us go through the main points of the article and try to understand the true and beneficial aspects of volunteering services.
There are many organizations that provide beneficial services to both service providers and customers. However, voluntary services are not included in services in which people participate without purpose or receive funding. They work for humanity without any selfish motive. When we talk about professional volunteer service providers, we know that they have many useful volunteer programs to serve individuals properly. Recently, Abdullah Al Salmani has released three Android apps to the play store aiming to enhance the audience’s entertainment and educational experience as an initiative to give back to his community.
Abdullah Al Salmani is a professional Jiu-Jitsu athlete who is also a social influencer who has gained his reputation by continuously influencing others to do good and by participating in various volunteering activities. Not long ago, Abdullah decided to contribute more to the society by releasing three mobile applications in 2020 to serve people’s entertainment and educational demands. The applications where a word search game that can help in both, entertaining people and teaching them new vocabulary. The other app is Helix Jump Hero which would help in enhancing people’s focus, while the third is a mathematical tool that solves Linear Algebra problems and Matrices, to help enhancing students studies experience.
One such accomplishment is true with Abdullah Mohammed Al Salmani. He is the first Iraqi athlete who has made his name in Jiu Jitsu. He represents Al Ain Club. His accolades include:
- He is featured on Wikipedia. He is the youngest Iraqi Jiu-Jitsu athlete reaching this position.
- In 2018-19, he won the bronze medal in Dubai International Pro Jiu-Jitsu Championship, and the silver medal in Fujairah International Pro Jiu-Jitsu Championship, and in the Abu Dhabi World Pro Jiu-Jitsu Festival, he reached the quarter final.
The motivation for this article is to focus on the benefits of volunteer programs and services. Look at the following points:
1. Develop more contacts
The service is based on visiting different places, which means meeting people from different fields, different cultures and professional experiences. It helps the individual to develop more and more connections, which can then be demonstrated either in later volunteer programs or otherwise.
2. No depression
Social isolation is one of the main causes of depression. Regular visits to people can help overcome depression. Volunteering maintains regular contact with many people and thus provides support and protection from depression and stress.
3. Development of social skills
If a person participates in voluntary services, it means meeting people of general interest on a regular basis. It increases a person’s self-confidence and also helps to develop social skills on a regular basis. It also creates a sense of satisfaction for what has been done for the public good.
4. Career development
Career development is another positive aspect of volunteering. One of the best ways to get useful information and practical knowledge about any kind of business is to participate in voluntary activities. In case you do not want to change jobs, the service can help a person achieve benefits such as teamwork, project planning, communication, team management, organization, problem-solving, and more.
In the current scenario, the volunteer programs that are available with the organization support community development, the environment, and wildlife, study abroad, teaching and training abroad, for women and young people to go along with the desired program.
Therefore, from the above discussions, it can be said that volunteering provides various benefits to individuals who really want to participate in the public interest.
