Lending a Helping Hand

Students research the work of North American NGOs and select one to support with a financial contribution as a class. In this philanthropic research instructional activity, students consider the work of Benjamin Franklin, defining good citizenship and listing examples of his work. Students also define and identify non-governmental organizations (NGO) and analyze why they are needed, as well as, how society benefits from their work.
