^hy learn about Development?
Volunteers travel to developing countries to work on a huge variety of projects such as assisting in
under-resourced schools, offering expertise at under-equipped medical facilities, campaigning on
human rights issues, providing care for HIV/AIDS orphans, promoting improved agricultural practices
and so on. But why do these problems exist in the first place and why are they not easily solved
through our goodwill and charity?
Learning about development can help us understand more about the causes of and solutions to these
problems and can help us be better informed volunteers, addressing not just the superficial poverty
related issues but the deeper rooted causes as well. It can help us to have a more complex and
accurate impression of the developing world than what is commonly shown to us through charity
advertising. It can also help us when we return to educate others about the issues involved.
