There are many orphaned children who do have the fortune to have a family and therefore, have to struggle to live life alone. We must give back to our family and do something that makes them proud of us.

Your family is always there to be proud of your achievements and correct you when you are taking a wrong decision of life. Apart from that,  your family will realize the true essence of your hard work and celebrate your happiness in true sense.
