The best answer on the way to help others had been taught by a divine teacher 2000 years ago.
'Give a man a fish and you feed for a day,
Teach him how to fish and you'll feed him for life'.
Education is a way out of poverty, for it teaches mankind to think, not just profit, but for himself and others around him to build up a society that
leaves no one behind in social-political and economomic spheres.
Mankind had proven itself capable of improving upon learnt and taught knowledge, and will grow in leaps and bounds, to make mistakes and yet correct
them to evolve.
It begins with education, not necessary of the academic kind, but can be in many forms. Give to charity and you will end with the poor with a 'crutch
mentality', for ever dependent on help.
Show him the ways to earn a living, so as to live in dignity, and you would have helped him for life. Not everyone can be taught, but those who do,
will be worth your effort as they contribute to society, and in turn, they help others, gradually making those needing help becoming only a smaller
pool, not negliable, but may be helped by others with different techniques than ours, to rejoin society.
