Self involvement and orphans…..
Gotta love White saviors who go to Africa to volunteer and/or adopt those poor African kids.
Via World Mic.
There is nothing wrong with the humanitarian impulse. That those with the time and means choose to devote themselves to helping the less fortunate is noble and to be commended. But as the SAIH video shows, this aid often comes in the form of activities that make little difference or misunderstands the cultural context in which it operates.
There are ways to make a difference abroad. But snapping selfies with orphans isn’t one of them.
