Poverty & Tourism
Having spent 6 months living and volunteering in a small jungle village in rural Belize, I kept noticing some issues related to poverty that I knew were universal in developing countries. After finishing my volunteering period I decided to follow up on the observations. Inspired by my life in the Belizean jungle I've decided to write a series of essays on different topics, but always with poverty influencing people's lives on my mind. I've discovered that the world is ruled by the law of the jungle, with the “fittest” (in this context, the richest) ruling the world. Finally I have chosen 8 topics: gender, sexual and reproductive health and rights, education, religion, trash management, tourism, food and volunteering itself. Those essays can be read alone or together, under a common title: "The Law of the Jungle. Poverty's impact on the lives of people in developing countries".
