you as a westerner go to developing countries with the
intention to do something good there, you will find out
very soon, that the rich of the developing country will
pull you towards them like a magnet. They will find your
goals good, they will make suggestions to you how they
can help you with their connections, to build something
big, and they will even offer you money and other material
help to realise that project.
But be warned to go that way, because then it will become impossible to be with
the poor and needy themselves together. The rich will want
to have (buy) you exclusively for themselves, to use you
as promotion for their interests (create an image of somebody
who does something great, but in reality just build a big
influencial system). For the poor nothing will come out
of it, even in the long term, because they have very different
needs than the rich can imagine. Within the thinking of
the rich, you will never be able to know their real needs
(like for example rights or having equal chances, not something
like a building which can be put there with money, that
would just be a symbol that serves only the rich).
If you do not want to fall in this trap, you will have to fight konsequently
to have nothing to do with the rich, sadly it is like that.
And you also have to give up to have a program or material
measurable concrete goal. Instead you can only react to
the situation that comes towards you while living with
the poor, because then this is from their interest, for
their development in their way of thinking.
