Strathmore Business Club Inspires and Gives Hope

Empathy is the oil that keeps relationships running smoothly. Indeed, empathy is valued currency. It allows us to create bonds of trust, it gives us insights into what others may be feeling or thinking; it helps us understand how or why others are reacting to situations, it sharpens our “people acumen” and informs our decisions.

A formal definition of Empathy is the ability to identify and understand another’s situation, feelings and motives. It’s our capacity to recognize the concerns other people have. Empathy means: “putting yourself in the other person’s shoes” or “seeing things through someone else’s eyes.”

What is the difference between an ordinary life and a great one? The difference isn’t money, education, success, fame or power. It is instead the little things we do every day with love. The difference is stopping on the side of the road to help someone change a tyre. It is opening a door for an elderly person. It is listening to a person as they tell you their problems or talk to a child. It is saying a few kind words like Please, Thank you, Welcome .It passing on words of love to the less fortunate people in the society. It is passing a few words of encouragement to the people around us. It is doing what you are able with what you are given to make this world a bit more like heaven. It is little things like this that make our day good and the world better.

On Saturday 20th July 2013, Strathmore Business Club (SBC) was out to show its empathetic part by giving back to the society when they visited Dream children home in Ngong Hills as part of the club’s Corporate Social Responsibity and contribution towards the University Community week.

Dream Children’s Home was founded in the year 2005 with a population of 8 children and currently has a population of over 100.The home houses children’s ranging from the youngest that is three-weeks old to the oldest that is currently in college. The home provides shelter and education to the children. The SBC family engaged the kids in various activities which included Dancing, playing games, teaching them basic hygiene and cleaning the compound.

From the experience at Dream, the Club members learnt the virtue of helping the needy who are not privileged and contribute towards a better society. The club will be visiting the home each semester and engage in other CSR activities. All the first years in the club promised to undertake their community based attachment at the home.
At the end of the day it was a job well done and the Club President Marvel Wandabwa presented on behalf of the Club some donations and food stuff that will assist in putting a smile on the children faces.

Strathmore Business Club is an all-round club that nurtures the entrepreneurial dreams of its members and turns them to reality. That has made it to have members from all the faculties in the university, as it brings out a true picture of the University.
