How can one contribute to social development?

Juggling between school and work, I learn to compromise and weigh in on pros and cons of both sides. Always, a student’s life is crazy busy (just like a busy bee) and academically focused while the work life is quite the same but different in one way: travelling and wordly-knowledge absorption or accumulation. I don’t prefer either of them but adore and equally value both of the academic ways!
For four days, I was assigned to do some reporting for a big international organization. Although I was not quite assured it would be little or much work, I accepted the offer without complaint, hopped on the car and off I went into the world that not many city dwellers know. I had butterflies in my stomach that I wouldn’t be able to do the work because I was so new to it (meeting different social organizations in each of the four provinces and reporting about their work). I was just like a cat on hot bricks, trying to grasp as much I could during my time there.
The rural views I travelled past were breath-taking, stunning, ravishing. I couldn’t explain how much I wanted to be so close to nature. In spite of lack-of-development looks, the countryside is the place many retirees have a strong passion to vacate in. The air is so clean and fresh. I shouldn’t forget to tell about the tattered houses or huts villagers (shacks) tried to cram into to avoid cold and strong wind this month. If the life of the villagers were more improved, I’m sure they’d have so much fun and smiles would appear very often on their faces. Not to mention the hygenic situation in the far-away areas, I was informed that it is getting just a little better or not at all in different areas.

  1. Well, there’s no simple answer to your question. Academics often write books trying to tackle similar questions. Nevertheless, I tend to believe that raising awareness may help since any change, big or small, starts in our mind.

  2. It is a hard life juggling between work and study but it would pay off in a sense that meeting people will bring about new experiences and this is quite an enormous senses of what is happening in the world where people lack of ideads of pay little attention or no attention at all. This experiences would benefit you in the long run as a writer as well, in a sense that you could use the experiences derived from field visits, stress or emphasize peple’s words in their own terms to serve as a wake-up call in your article[s].
    Everyone of us can directly or indirectly contribute to social development if we decided to embark on it and that the stakeholders are willing to particpate in, little or big change would definitely there
