This is our moment, this is our time, this is our chance to stand up for what is right.
"Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for such belongs the kingdom of God" - Matthew 18:10
What is an advocate?
One that pleads the cause of another. One that defends or maintains a cause or proposal. One that supports or promotes the interests of another
Anyone with a voice or a pen can be an advocate. Just start talking to those around you about the issues of today: poverty, AIDS, child labourers, orphans, street children, child soldiers, sexual exploitation, slavery, unsafe water, children not in school, maternal death rate, refugees, night commuting children, human rights, justice – pick one that you are passionate about, study it, and Become An Advocate!
The internet is a goldmine of information, with thousands of articles, video clips, recommended books. Your public library has books and videos. Watch documentaries on TV. Rent movies such as “Hotel Rwanda”. Newspapers have articles almost daily, with celebrities and politicians starting to take up the cause of the poor. Educate yourself, and begin to talk to your neighbours, friends, team mates, co-workers, and relatives. Then urge them to get involved in the solutions – sponsor a child, work together to raise funds for a children’s home or well, volunteer at a soup kitchen.
What is a Representative?
A representative is one who garners child sponsorship; works together with a team to fund-raise for children’s homes and other building projects; helps organize Hero Holidays to visit and work at orphanages ; and is an advocate for the children at risk.
