    Neither is a correct sentence. We don't "attend organisations". We belong to organisations. We attend meetings, concerts, gigs, parties etc.

    "To study lessons is necessary" and "Studying lessons is necessary".
    We don't study lessons. We study. We take/have lessons in a subject.

    "The most important thing is helping people. and " The most important thing is to help people."
    Both are fine but I prefer the first.
    See my comments above in red.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
