First let me define what I mean by foreign aid.
The importance of the long term effect of how we help people isn't new. Way back in the 19th century Andrew Carnegie in his book "the Gospel of Wealth" said those who have more should help others help themselves, not hand out money.
In the book "Politics Poverty and Microfinance" by Brian Warby, the author starts off with the story of Muhammad Yunus. Muhammad Yunas, the father of micro finance, used small loans in to women in third world countries to help them start businesses and improve their situations. This has allowed them to making a lasting impact.
So let's help people and let's do it in the best way possible by allowing people the power to help others overcome their situations and leave a lasting impact on the world. Let's end government foreign aid and let the citizens of the world change the world. Feel free to comment below and let me know what you think about this post! Any constructive feedback is welcome!
