Very true. I also am aware that I cannot solve all the world's problems and I am no means going to attempt it.

But what I meant by getting deeper was to eliminate that kids have to be like that in the first place. It is true for those kids that is the (money or food or education) life saving thing. But somehow I am not that interested in it - I want to get deeper and prevent that kids even get to that stage. I believe lot of reasons why kids have to suffer in the first place is because of very poor values and economic and social systems. For instance, in the US - the economy is so well structured and developed that hardly there are any kids who are hungry and without home. There are still kids like taht, but comparitively much less than other countries, like say India. So that is what I want to focus on - instead of trying to help only a few kids. In other words, teach to fish rather than giving a fish. If there is a way a country's economy can flourish and people are respectful and sincere and have good values, there wouldn't be any orphans or poverty or mass hunger and famine and stuff. Lots of times, it is not the lack of natural resources that actually make people poor. It is mostly poor governance and poor social values. And that is my passion mostly. Not to say that helping kids is bad. Just that I want to think why even kids into that stage first and prevent that if possible.
