Association for Therapeutic, Recreational and Sports Riding (MOGU)
Darko volunteered with the Association for Therapeutic, Recreational and Sports Riding (MOGU), an organisation that works with children with special needs. For example, he worked on maintaining their rooms and as a janitor.
“This work has enriched me in ways that I gained some new experiences. For example, people don’t know they have certain muscles until they go to the gym, just like that, I found the awakening of empathy towards others. So, the key was empathy, together with action.”
”Until you work on something, you do not even know what you can create. Maybe I thought I was not talented for some types of work. But now, through this experience, I see that people have it in themselves, that spark. We do not use it in our daily lives because our obligations prevent us. But there is always time to help someone. Because I have not been involved in these kinds of activities before, only now do I see how useful to the society I can be beside what I do in my normal life.”
