The Kids of Asia.
“Be the change that you want to see in the world”
Travelling around Asia for an extensive period of time eventually takes a toll on the heart. Seeing little children selling bracelets, and what not to make ends meet…It gets pretty confronting, and draining to watch. To know that this problem not only exists in Asia, but worldwide.
The problem is, we take for granted the essential things in life like food, water, shelter and clothing…
Despite this heartbreaking side of travelling, there is a more hopeful one.
One that allows us to smile, knowing that despite their ‘struggles’, they are content.
You can see it in their smiles, and the way they play with one another. We could learn a lot through the observation of their lives and culture.
If you want to see better, we have to be better. I can safely say that my life has been enriched, through my personal experience of seeing what poverty looks like. It is our duty, to help and increase awareness through our skills and knowledge.
Because, let’s face it, knowledge itself is power and education is one of the most powerful tools we can use to change what matters around us.
