How did you get interested in global issues?
Everyone on the earth is impacted by global issues, therefore it’s crucial to understand them in order to make decisions and take action to address them. Climate change, inequality, conflict, and a host of other problems are all interrelated and need for international cooperation and collaboration to be solved.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Volunteering to serve the world’s poor is a noble cause that many people are passionate about. For some, it’s a sense of responsibility or duty to help those in need. Others may have had personal experiences that have motivated them to take action.

Regardless of the reason, serving the poor is an important and fulfilling way to make a positive impact on the world. Helping those in need can bring a sense of purpose, satisfaction, and fulfillment, knowing that you are contributing to a greater cause.

Volunteering can take many forms, such as providing direct aid, advocating for policy changes, or raising awareness about social justice issues. Every little bit counts, and even small contributions can make a significant difference in someone’s life.

Ultimately, serving the world’s poor is an act of compassion and solidarity that can bring people together and create positive change in the world.
