A little while ago, I wrote an article asking what each of us would do if we ruled the World, what would be the first thing we would change? (Link to that story is here). I was able to boil down many of the suggestions to a list of things that can and need to be approached:
2. Potable Water
4. Ending War/Conflict
5. Universal Education
6. Universal Health Care
Looking around at ways to approach this, a friend sent me to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation website where they are working towards all of these items, it seems. This Foundation's effort seem to be completely in line with the goals established in the original article I did. Looking farther into the design of the foundation, there is even a Skill Evaluator on the Visitor Center Page that will guide you to where your particular skillset can best be used.
As pointed out be another commenter, that anyone wanting to contribute to the greater good of the world doesn't have to neccessarily be good at what they are trying to accomplish-they can learn on the job-and the job they do will be well recieved as it is being done with heart and a need to make things better for others.
So, what are you willing to do to help? I believe that I will involve myself in habitat for humanity in the building of decent living space for those in need in my local area. There are a lot of things that can be done to help-a myriad of projects. Helping others is one of the things we should always strive to do.
