What Are You Doing to Help Save Children from Poverty - Non-ProfitWhat Are You Doing to Help Save Children from Poverty? by Jeremy Smith
in Non-Profit (submitted 2010-06-08)
We've all seen the news reports featuring desperately poor children suffering the effects of poverty. We've all seen the billboards asking for help for some of the world's poorest children. We've all received mail from various charities asking us to spare a few dollars for those in need. Do you respond? Do you answer that call? Or do you just put a few dimes in a collection bucket and go about your daily life, safe in the knowledge that you've "done your bit?"
The question is, what are you really doing to help save children from the devastating effects of poverty around the world?
You are probably doing more than you realize. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development calculated that in 2008 the United States spent about $25 billion on foreign aid. That's $25 billion tax dollars that you contributed to the government, which is then redirected abroad. And you didn't even notice it was gone out of your wallet! So why do we still see news reports, billboards and flyers with appeals to help save children from poverty?
While that $25 billion seems like a huge amount, it's actually a fraction of the amount needed to make a real difference. So it is up to ordinary people like us to go one step further.
So what can I do?
Sponsoring a child is one of the best ways to really make a difference in the life of a child in need. Child sponsorship means you are personally involved in improving a child's life. Unlike aid relief, which usually helps meet immediate, short-term needs, child sponsorship has a long-term effect. For about a dollar a day, you can ensure that a child gets a good education and has access to health care and essentials like clean drinking water. Your support can also make a huge difference not only to the child, but to his or her entire community. Your sponsorship may enable a child currently living in poverty to finish secondary school and perhaps go on to university to train as a doctor or teacher. The child you sponsor could continue to make a real difference to help save future generations from the spiral of poverty.
Doing something practical to help save children from poverty is always rewarding. There are simple things you can do that won't cost you a dime. Remembering children in your daily prayers makes you part of a voice that echoes around the world. Your prayer support of Christian ministries that are working to bring both relief and the teachings of Jesus Christ to children in poverty are greatly appreciated. Why not become an active member of a prayer group or fundraising organization that focuses purely on children in need?
An individual can do plenty to help save children from poverty. Don't just rely on the government to do it for you. If everyone does one small thing to help children who are suffering the effects of poverty around the world, it can and will make a difference.
