It can be hard to watch the endless succession of disaster and calamity that makes up our news. Sat comfortably in your arm chair it’s easy to decide that you can’t make a difference to such huge problems. The truth is that you can, and an incredible amount of positive life affirming stories just never get reported. In fact, living situations in the poorest parts of the world have been improved dramatically over the last few decades for many people and this is at least in part due to an increase in people taking time out from their busy lives to volunteer their time.
