Where does one begin if they want to make a difference in the lives of young children in developing nations?
As I enter the work force, I am finding it harder and harder to find something that I am not only passionate about, but also makes a difference in the world.
Currently, I am trying to bridge the gap in education between affluent and low-income communities within the same area -- i.e. New York/New Jersey.
However, I want to do more. I want to fix the even bigger disparities that exist all over the world. There are too many countries in which girls are not allowed to go to school, places where girls are instead forced into prostitution or simply sold to the wealthy as little more than slaves.
What I want to hear your insight and advice on, is where do I begin? I feel as though I am in a position to help - as anyone is - but I really do not know where to start, what organizations do the most, where to meet people who share my vision...
So I am turning to you and hoping that someone can turn me in the right direction.
