Mangalurean Dancy D’Souza honored for volunteering at Voice of America

Volunteering to help others leads to better health, builds resilience, brings joy and happiness; says awarded winner Mangalurean Dancy D’Souza.

Volunteering helps reduce loneliness, reduce stress, combat depression, now recognized as a serious health risk, and is one of the community-led approaches that can help improve mental health. With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering can be enormous. Volunteering offers vital help to people in need worthwhile causes, and the community.

Dancy D’Souza was awarded for demonstrating a commitment to volunteering and giving back to the community through the Do-Good Program in 2019.

At the 2019 GECU Honors Night Celebration Banquet Awards Presentation, Dancy D’Souza was honored in a Grammy style award ceremony at Voice of America, Cincinnati on March 5, 2020.

Volunteering can be a way for people to boost their personal and social resources, it also shows that people need those resources in the first place to take part.

There are many reasons for people not to volunteer. For older people, the barriers can include poor health, poverty, lack of skills, poor transport links, or having caring responsibilities, such as looking after grandchildren. Younger people can be deterred by feeling they don’t have the time to volunteer, or not knowing anyone else who volunteers. Many also think volunteering is just for older people with time on their hands. Volunteering has an image problem, particularly with men and younger people.

Dancy D’Souza born in Shirva, Mangalore is the wife of Harold D’Souza, U.S. Advisory Council on Human Trafficking at The White House. Hers sons Bradly and Rohan have devoted hundreds of hours towards community service. Today Bradly takes pride for being team member of Tesla and Rohan for Apple in America.

Volunteering can help you make friends, learn new skills, advance your career, and even feel happier and healthier.

It has been definitely exemplified by Dancy, a family that prays together stays together, a family that struggles together stays together, a family that prays together stays together and a family that volunteers together stays together.
