I want to help children in different countries

Asked Burlington, Ontario, Canada

Ive watched a lot of documentaries about children around the world, (Mostly in Bangladesh) and I can't help but to feel bad for them and want to help them. When I watch them go through horrible things like being sold for awful needs, or their parents abandoning them etc. I want to make their lives great alike mine. I want to be their for them, I want to help them to achieve great things in life! For example of a job idea, I was thinking of teaching children english. I hope this made sense and you are able to recommend me different jobs :) #teaching #travel #career

Hey Cadence, that’s an awesome ambition and the world truly needs more people like you. Teaching English is a common way to see the world and help natives of the area where you end up residing. There are also ways to help people through the Red Cross and other international volunteering vocations. I personally have a friend that joined the peace corps to teach English to children in Ghana. If you are looking for a way to make money internationally, teaching English would be a great option. If you are still wanting to stay near home, there are companies that have their employees use webcams to teach internationally.

Also so I would look into government positions overseas to help others. There are a lot of opportunities but you’ll have to do a bit of research. I hope this helps!

Why? There are children starving in this country. There a children living on the streets, in shelters, and all could use your help. I am not talking about money. Be kind to them. Treasure your time with them and give them hope that they can grow out of there present situation. It is noble to want to help people but don't let the miles stop you.
