Third World Countries

Hello there. MarkeeTeeVee here. I've always been posting stuff concerning the site and not much about our main mission - Charity. For that, I decided to do this, for a change.


Have you ever been to a third world country? Some yes, some no, some might not even know what "Third World Country" means. In a nutshell, a third world country is somewhat the same as an under-developed country. The term 'Third World' arrived during the Cold War to describe countries that remained non-aligned with either capitalism and NATO (which along with its allies represented the First World), or communism and the Soviet Union (which along with its allies represented the Second World). This provided a way of categorizing the nations into three groups based on social, political, and economic divisions.

Did this "categorization" help the third world countries. Heck, are we even aware of the situations these countries are facing? I live in a Third-World country and the situation here is getting worse everyday. You can see YOUNG people begging in the streets. Yes , YOUNG people. People who were supposed to be the hope for the future. Then there are also the elders. Instead of resting and enjoying the rest of their lives, there they are, begging in the streets just to have food to eat.

What are we doing then? I know ONE thing that we are doing. BLAMING THE GOVERNMENT. You know what, blaming them doesn't solve anything. Why can't we just do it ourselves? There are lot's of ways if you only keep an open-mind and willing heart. Instead of blaming the government, why don't we just take an action ourselves? That's a question that we should all ponder on.

Think about it.
