To be able to work actively for a good cause in society, you should be able to communicate your ideas and thoughts well. People should understand what you are saying and comprehend your meaning. There should be a good level of understanding among everyone. It is a good idea to attend training classes in communication. Though it may seem unnecessary, such classes will help you to get tips on how to communicate effectively.

A good cause
You should have an objective. Find which cause you are going to work on. You should not just go into society and start initiatives for many projects to help the needy. When you start, first determine a good cause. It may be to provide study materials to needy students or provide shelter for homeless kids etc. However small your objective may feel, try starting with only that one cause. Work hard for that cause and earn the trust of the society.

One successful project is always much better than many unfinished projects. Find what you can do to help the society in the best way possible. Do not try to start meaningless initiatives which you lose interest in after some time.

Remember that people, emotions and their lives are involved in whatever you start. Never give people hope and snatch it away from them.
