The inception of One Human Community was motivated by the Founder’s personal experience and compassion, NOT charity.
Charity – in our experience – isn’t a blessing. It disempowers the recipients, makes them passive and helpless. (I’m not writing these words for the joy of writing. We encountered our share of “poor” people who have turned poverty in a “career”, they are “professionally” and permanently poor, benefiting from all and any charity available and always “shopping” for more. Many of these people aren’t poor: they have more and better than we or our volunteers! Opportunists are NOT welcome at One Human Community!)
I’d be amiss if I didn’t say here that there are some – VERY FEW!!! – people “sentenced” to permanent poverty by tragic circumstances. (I met a woman who has a severely Autistic child that requires 24/7 care. There is nothing wrong with the woman and she’s capable of earning a living for herself and her child, BUT she’d be forced to chose between being a 24/7 care provider for her child and getting / keeping a job. I’m not King Solomon and I’m not qualified to make choices for others. It seems to me that a situation like hers – there are other just as tragic cases I know of – calls for a regular financial support and not occasional acts of “charity”.)
