In the article, “ To Give or Not to Give” (Upfront) I learned that many tourists visiting India have seen a lot of kids begging for money, because they don’t have much food  to eat in their homes, they have to go to the streets and beg for money. But in the article they mention, “ If I give them money, exploitative adults may take it.” I don’t think taking the money away from these kids that don’t have food is right, we all have necessities but stealing their money is something unfair.

I think that all those people live in poverty but as adults they should respect the way others help these kids. But I also think we should contribute to helping these people because they also need the help, as many of us.
