# Put yourself in their shoes!!!

"A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as
hungry as the dog".
— Jack London
Our school has raised around 10.000 € in a foundation campaign and we want to donate it to a local charity
or ONG, but we found out that there are several organizations and we can't seem to decide on which one to
support. So please, can you help me to select which organization we should donate our money to?

TASK:
- The whole class will be divided in groups of 4 students.
- Each team will be assigned an organization randomly.
- Each member of the group will have a different role/task in his/her group. He or she must become an
expert on the assigned task. These roles and tasks are the followings:
1) Expert on the ORGANIZATION 
2) Expert on the PROBLEMS 
3) Expert on the PROJECTS 
4) Expert on VOLUNTEER WORK

Now, you must search for information on the web and you must be prepared to answer these questions:
 
1) Expert on the ORGANIZATION 
a) What is the mission or purpose of your organization?
b) Where does your Charity or NGO operate?
c) How does your Charity or NGO raise and spend money?
d) When was your Charity or NGO founded and by whom?

2) Expert on the PROBLEMS 
a) What the problem consists in?
b) What causes the problem?
c) What are the consequences of the problem?
d) How many people/animals/plants are affected by the problem?

3) Expert on the PROJECTS 
a) Places/cities/countries where they have projects
b) Type of project
c) Cost of the project
d) Expected results

4) Expert on VOLUNTEER WORK


a) How many people work and/or volunteer for your Charity or NGO?
b) Which different kinds of jobs can you do in a volunteering program?
c) Which skills are useful and what attitude is helpful for a good experience?
d) Which countries could you participate in as a volunteer?

Then, get together to share the information and decide the design of your keynote. Also you must include
the creation of an advertisement based on your own charity or non-governmental organization to raise
awareness and boost for the donation. Remember that Charities or ONGs exist because those who work
and volunteer for them believe passionately in its importance.
Reflection
a. What you admire about the organization (reflection of by each group members)
b. How you think your organisation is different and especially deserves support
