Where I'm Needed


Why do people think going to Africa is the answer?

Sometimes, I hear people say they're going to take a couple weeks off and go work with a non-for-profit in Africa. That's awesome! But, these are people who currently don't do to help poverty locally. Do they think that going to the MOST impoverished place counts double or something?

And I wonder if anyone actually goes to bring relief to South America? 'cause they're farther than my local soup kitchen, but not as cool sounding as Africa.
