Poverty can't be solved by pennys given to beggars

Walking through the streets of a poorly developed country will give a different perspective of what poverty is all about. Poverty is relative to each individual's understanding of it. The people you see as poor may actually be comfortable by their way of life. In Uganda, Africa many kids are seen on the streets but helping them is a choice of the tourist. Helping them by giving them money isn't always the best solution, they will spend it and continue begging. The better option is if you have planned a Uganda safari with a tour operator, ask them to connect you to organizations that help the needy, in this way you offer them the best foundation for a better life.
