If not CS, then what? Alternative actions to CS

Why do we need to look for alternatives to child sponsorship? Because child sponsorship does not address global injustices and, in fact, can be seen to do more harm than good. Research shows that child sponsorship neither works towards global justice nor is “better than nothing.”

Working towards global justice requires developing critical thinking, challenging our privileged positions and finding practical actions centred on equity, justice and solidarity. Based on the interviews with participants, alternative actions to child sponsorship are presented in this tackle box drawer. Some of them might require further reading and education. However, you can choose those actions that suit you best, and you can take one step at a time towards being a responsible global citizen.
