Students Welfare Association

Hey guys , hope you are doing good :) 
i am just gonna write about this welfare organization i started , named Students Welfare Association... Its a charity based organization and me and my friends have just started recently and are working on it as much as we can :)
The idea...

As being students; we spend our time in various activities just to keep ourselves entertained. We do all this just to be happy, well thats what humans want, HAPPINESS! But at this point most of us become selfish and focus only on our happiness . We don't look around and notice the gloomy people. Why? Is it too difficult? or are we really that selfish?
  I personally gave a thought to it. Its just that we 'think' we are too busy in our life that we don't have time to think about any of this! But go on ask yourself this question ; are you really that busy? well obviously i know you arent. and you know that too . We always give things different priorities and thats when things like these get ignored .
  So instead of wasting my time on various other activities , i thought why not put your efforts to some use. Why not do something which can benefit people in a positive way... so i thought of helping out people. And that is when the idea of a welfare project came into my mind. And how could i ignore those people who hide their feelings behind that fake smile? Those people who dont even ask for your help and suffer on their own, either financially or in some-other way.
   So this is when i took the initiative of Students welfare Association. 
   I shared this idea with my friends and family and they all appreciated it.
Well lots of people did. But starting this was the BIGGEST problem we faced. some people always have to discourage you sometimes by saying all the negative things, like you cant do this on your own , and its not that easy and all that. Well who doesnt kno its not that easy eh? Does it mean we shouldn't do anything?
  But i thanks all those people who stood by me and gave me the courage to take this initiative! One person who ill like to thank the most is Mr Zia Ul Haq.  This guy was like sitting with me in a room, and i told him about this idea and he was like come-on lets go get donations right away hahaha. He was so enthusiastic!  And people have to be like this if they have to run some kind of organization . And thanks to my group fellows ( Electrolytes ) who helped me in this and were  there to support me like always!

What are our aims...

well as the name indicates, it is related to the welfare of students but that doesn't mean it is only concerned with the students. we aim to help out the needy people regardless of who they are. But yes our first priority are the deserving students.
  Normally when we say that we aim to help the needy students , people take it casually. like yeah yeah ok we know they are deserving and we will help them ' SOMEDAY ' . actually they are just ignoring this . such people will encourage you . by commenting on your posts and liking all the stuff BUT when it comes to the practical work, they are just empty. And there are those people with whom you chat. you tell em all about this and then they sat  " great work pal just love it " and all that, but again, when ur doing something practical. they are gone. Actually such people are only cheating themselves. 
  And there are people who dont even ask anything and they just hear the word donation and Volla, they give it to you BECAUSE they know its for a good cause, no , actually a GREAT  cause.
let me share some verses of the Holy Quran :
 -Quran: Surah # 2, Ayat (ayah) # 43 
(represented as 002.043)

-And be steadfast in prayer; practise regular charity; and bow down your heads with those who bow down (in worship).

-And remember We took a covenant from the Children of Israel (to this effect): Worship none but Allah; treat with kindness your parents and kindred, and orphans and those in need; speak fair to the people; be steadfast in prayer; and practise regular charity. Then did ye turn back, except a few among you, and ye backslide (even now).

-They ask thee what they should spend (In charity). Say: Whatever ye spend that is good, is for parents and kindred and orphans and those in want and for wayfarers. And whatever ye do that is good, -Allah knoweth it well.
-And whatever ye spend in charity or devotion, be sure Allah knows it all. But the wrong-doers have no helpers

-If ye disclose (acts of) charity, even so it is well, but if ye conceal them, and make them reach those (really) in need, that is best for you: It will remove from you some of your (stains of) evil. And Allah is well acquainted with what ye do. 

-Those who (in charity) spend of their goods by night and by day, in secret and in public, have their reward with their Lord: on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. 

-Amongst them are men who made a covenant with Allah, that if He bestowed on them of His bounty, they would give (largely) in charity, and be truly amongst those who are righteous


-Who are active in deeds of charity

 Well as you can see that " charity " is not something we should be ignoring .We should be happy to help others and feel proud to be the one doing it .
