Storyboard Text

  • Third World Country (Indonesia)
  • Hey! Did you guys hear about that country in Asia where people live in huts on the beach?
  • First World Country (America)
  • Yeah! They can't afford homes right?!
  • I heard that too! How can people not afford a house? We all have one, that's so lame.
  • History Class
  • Good afternoon students! Today, we are talking about third world countries or the underdeveloped countries in the world recognizably known for their widespread poverty.
  • So they aren't just needy! Can we help?
  • Third-world countries include those whose standard of living is much below the humane level because of financial discrepancies that stem from a country's independence from NATO. Many first-world citizens see these countries as needy and destitute, often neglecting their duty to help.
  • Later at home
  • Hey dad! Is there anything I can do for people in other countries that can't afford houses like ours?
  • Children in first world countries usually hear their first perspectives of people less fortunate than them as needy in a negative way. That is why young children often scoff at homeless people in the streets or economic situations like the ones in third world countries.
  • That Summer
  • Let's go try to help! These people need us!
  • Guys, if we didn't do this, who would have?
  • When exposed to the facts about third world countries, the students became more aware of the inescapable circumstances people in these countries are trapped in. They began to feel empathy, and even searched for a way to help.
  • Late August, That Year
  • Really! Thank you so much! We've made such good friends too!
  • Supportive parents will see a child's desire to help as an opportunity to teach them valuable life lessons and what it means to have nothing.
  • Yeah son! There's so many trips that you can go on to be one of the people to build their homes or to paint them, invite your friends!
  • The school children chose to spend their summer volunteering in Indonesia doing service work for the locals that were less fortunate than themselves.
  • By the end of the three months the youngsters spent repairing and rebuilding the Indonesian people homes, hardly able to understand them, they realized the value of neediness. They recognized the relationships that are made when one person is in need of the other, without shame, and the other offers there services without expecting anything in return. They were never the same.
