To help the blind children around is my dream. Since being temporarily blind, I understood how scared and helplessness stayed in a dark environment. As a president of school philanthropy club, I had an opportunity to enter a blind children school to put my efforts to help them as their teaching assistant. When I firstly got into this school, the charming bells and the lush greenery seemed there was no difference between other schools. As I listened to the chatter of children tapping their canes along the walks and saw their fingers touch the raised dots and different patterns on the paper, I really wanted to do something for them, not as a compassionate response, but helped them to be like normal people and even better than us. As their teaching

It may sound cliché, but I was born to teach students with disabilities. Growing up, I had the best example to follow. My mother actively taught special education for 31 years and seeing her interaction with students created a passion in me to do the same thing. Even at a young age, it was evident that I wanted to be a teacher: from forcing my younger brother to sit still and play “school” with me, to spending my free time volunteering in special needs classrooms during middle and high school.

The nonprofit sector in America is a reflection some of the foundational values that brought our nation into existence. Fundamentals, such as the idea that people can govern themselves and the belief that people should have the opportunity to make a difference by joining a like-minded group, have made America and its nonprofit sector what it is today. The American "civil society" is one that has been produced through generations of experiments with government policy, nonprofit organizations, private partnerships, and individuals who have asserted ideas and values. The future of the nonprofit sector will continue to be experimental in many ways. However, the increase of professional studies in nonprofit management and the greater
When you live with me and my family and you hear the sound, "beep, beep, beep", coming from upstairs, you know its mom cooking in the kitchen again. You head up the stairs and you see smoke everywhere, all the windows are open, and there she is standing on her tip toes waving a dishcloth by the smoke detector trying to get it to stop. This occurs probably more than it should at the Maasdam household, however, I wouldn't have it any other way. Even though cooking isn't one of my mom strengths, being one of the most supportive, loving, trustworthy, and having a servant heart is.
Did you know that there are more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations in just the U.S. (nccs.urban.org, “Quick Facts About Nonprofits”)? That means that a lot of people care about problems in the world and want to do something about them. The majority of activists create an organization, program, fund, or charity to help support, teach, and raise money for their cause. They also contribute to them regularly by making them better. What are some examples of organization and funds that activists made? How do they contribute to them? Activists such as Craig and Marc Kielburger, Faye Carey, and Emily-Anne Rigal all created funds and organizations to raise awareness and money for their cause. These activists all actively contribute and are still
Nonprofits have been involved in U.S. housing since the early 20th century when the tenement house was the “labor housing” in urban areas like New York City. At the time, the tenements were controlled by private industry that were concerned about profit rather than the quality of life of their tenants (Bratt, 1998, pp. 139-156). The nonprofit response came in the form of so-called “Model” tenement buildings which like their free-market counterparts quickly devolved into slums (Friedman, 1968, pp. 81-87). After these early failures, it would be nearly fifty years before any significant push by nonprofits in housing.

America's gifts to my generation are our freedom, our soldiers, and the promise of our security. Without these, America would be nothing like it is today. However, perhaps the biggest gift we have received is that of pride for our land of liberty and its people.

In today’s world there are hundreds of thousands of non-profit organizations (NPOs) established at the local, regional, national and international level, and their influence is increasing. Non-profit organizations even considered the third sector of the economy (the first two is the public and private, or commercial).

In those countries, which have largely shaped the system of legislative regulation of the sector (USA, UK, Australia, etc); the state spends huge sums on research programs in the field of standardization of the NPO.
