It can be rightly said that social workers around make us believe that kindness still exists in the world. For the past one year, many social workers have worked selflessly to help others during the tough times. One such social worker and youth icon is GD Harish Gowda from Mysuru.
Harish Gowda is the chairman of MCDCC bank and the Vice President of Karnataka State Cooperative Apex Bank LTD. He studied his Masters in London, and ever since he returned to Mysuru, Gowda has dedicated his life to working towards others. To carry out his social work, he has joined hands with others from the cooperative societies who also aim to help others and make their lives better.
Ever since social worker Harish Gowda from Mysuru dedicated his time to serve others, he hasn’t stopped. All his hard work got noticed by people from the political field, and it helped him earn the title of Youth Icon. Moreover, Gowda’s work in the cooperative field was hailed several times, and he is pretty vocal about social issues and how to curb them.
As the son of veteran politician G T Devegowda, kindness and the quality of helping others was instilled in him by his father. About the same, Harish Gowda shares, “I got the first-hand experience on this sector as my father was one of the pioneer cooperative leaders in the same region. There is a lot of scope in the sector and many things needs to be addressed. We are seeing economic slowdown, job crisis and many other social schisms amidst unprecedented health crisis. My focus is to work in this direction.”
About social work and helping others, Gowda shared, “It is crucial to see what’s happening around us and contribute in ways we can. If we don’t take the initiative, who else will? Today’s youth has the power to bring big changes in society. One of them is dedicating their time by working for the welfare of others and providing the underprivileged with food, clothing, and other basic amenities. I wish to encourage many young people like me to step out and help others in every possible way. Our society is full of many talented youth icons and I hope they step out and make the world a better place. During the pandemic, we saw how the young people stepped out and help others with food, medicines and resources.”
