volunteering!

Recommended Posts

closed it as soon as i saw "donating money"

that part is obviously voluntary like the job itself, but theyre suggesting you pay to teach others

backwardass logic

good for you though, it says a lot

 

generally speaking, when it comes to donating money as opposed to time, seeing the result in person is key for me. unless i talk to an orphan & believe they werent coached, i will continue to believe that an unnecessarily large amount of the donated funds go to a system of fat, holy war-advocating assholes

 

unless theyre homeless. i gave them that money to enjoy whatever poor decision that put them in that situation to begin with. no need for me to stick around & make sure theyre having a good time. the result itself is when i see them beggin on the streets afterwards. if it turns out they spent that money to help turn their lives around, thats just a bonus & i will have gained a little more faith in people

 

its a gamble

 

I think you've misinterpreted we DON'T pay to teach them, but they do accept donations if you want to give money (like any community organisation).

5fimgers what do you do with the kids?

I saw they have a campus in sydney.

just got me thinking I need to do something out side of my own interests for once.

If nothing else to boost my conscience.

aussie attack. At the moment I get paid to do good ( I work with a company that works closely with a lot of ngo's, I also do some stuff with special needs). I signed up to tutor migrants english but never got around to actually teaching anybody, which is a damn shame. Also I volunteered to help with unicef but due to the global recession they seem to have all the help they can handle.

 

some vandals I know are straight up pillars of the community.
