I have recently decided to start a child godfathership (Patenschaft) in Africa for a young girl (in Uganda) via SOS Children's Villages.

I will donate 35€ a month from my paycheck, so that this small girl can grow up in a good environment in one of their villages in Uganda, get good medical treatment and a solid education for later on.

In a few weeks, I will get a letter from the child and a picture and a description of the village.

Yeah, the African kids deserve it. More needs to be done by Europeans like me on the ground in Africa to combat the roots of poverty, so that they end up with a good life there (instead of migrating to Europe). Getting female kids a good education also means lower fertility in Africa, therefore less emigration pressure to Europe later on.

That's such a thoughtful reason for doing it! They should advertise that in the commercials, and poverty would be eradicated overnight.

That's a nice house you got there.  It would be a shame if immigrants were to come up and move into your basement.

Paying €35 per month seems like quite a steal for the peace of mind that comes with knowing there’ll be one less booga booga person desecrating your glorious, pure Austria, doesn’t it?
