Social Volunteering

In order to combat social exclusion, it is preferable to start again to put patches to soothe the consciences of those who do not know see that hunger, epidemics, desertification and exploitation are not causes but effects of poverty of the majority by the least ambition, but more powerful. Without an environment of citizen participation, social volunteer work loses its meaning. Everything is related and interdependent. Planet Earth does not know neither first nor third world, is a global reality that all affects us. We must get used to thinking with planetary perspective of ecology into the ecosophy.

The first deals with the study of the environment, while, in the second, we know part of it. Not only will we in this quality of life but the same survival, because not in vain is already known the imminent danger that the current model of development move from unfair to inhuman. This counts not only for the countries of the so-called third world. And if someone fatigue these data, more toil to whom the they suffer, as said the then Secretary-General of United Nations, Butros Galli, who called for a new global pact between the North and the South to avoid the outbreak of a social bomb integrated by 1.3 billion people living in abject poverty without access to employment, health care or education. The policy response and the financial commitment of the richer countries depends on the future of the planet since the social explosion is imminent. If someone thought that these reflections do not fit in a course on Social volunteering, knows that most heinous history socio-political and economic systems were previously announced in publications unless the public to react. It would not be difficult to list works and authors who announced with time the calamities that would happen once they conquered power throughout history.

But it is enough with this to finish with the fantasy that social volunteering only deals with the poor and marginalized national, by soft words. Social volunteering is rooted in the cry of the poor, and not only you provide them his hands and his voice but that you listen to them carefully because they should be the protagonists of his life journey and not floats in a puppet whose wires are not in his hands.
