Bài viết mẫu IELTS – Roads of charity – IELTS Task 2: Economy
Nowadays, some people like to give help directly to communities that need it, whilst others prefer to give money to national or internationals. Discuss both ways of providing help and give your opinion of which is better. Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge and experience.
Model asnwer 1
Many people like to help others. Some like to give their help directly to those that need it whereas others prefer to donate money to charitable organizations. I believe that giving directly is better and will outline my reasons below.
One of the problems with giving money to charitable organisations is that you often cannot be sure where that money is actually going. Inevitably, some of the money goes towards administration costs and some money might even be wassted on projects that prove too ambitious or badly organised. “However, if you provide help directly, either by doing some work or by donating money, you can be fairly certain that your help is going to people and communities that truly need it.”
Another problem is that national and international organisations may not be good at judging which communities need the help most. They may allow political or personal considerations to interfere with their judgement. For example, some charities-particularly religious ones-will not help communities that do not accept their beliefs.
One advantages of giving to a national or international organisation is that you do not have to make any physical contribution or give up your time. This is very attractive to those who prefer a more “hands off approach to hleping others. It also means that charitable organisations are not flooded with well-meaning people who lack the skills to help a charity with its work and who then have to be trained-which in itself takes time and money.”
To conclude, I think that providing help directly is better than doing so through organisations, even through giving to organisations has its advantages too.

I think that giving money to national or international organisations is better than providing help directly to those in need and will explain my reasons below.
Notional and international have the advantage of a wider view of a country. They can use this knowledge to assess which projects are more important and should therefore be focused on. Individuals who wish to directly help a community are unlikely to have such useful local knowledge unless they are members of that community or have lived as part of it.
Another advantage that national and international organisations have is that they are in a better position to mobilise resources-whether human or material-in order to help communities. They also have experience of arranging this, which well-meaning individuals generally do not.
This is not to say that providing direct help is without advantages. When donors provide help directly, the recipients can see that ordinary people care about their welfare and are prepared to give up their time and money to improve it. This intangible advantage should not be underestimated.
Providing direct help may also overcome some of the disadvantages that national and international charitable organisations have. Some charitable organisations focus too much on large – scale, eye – catching projects. Individual people who give their time and money to communities generally have limited resources and are therefore more likely to help with smaller projects. These projects and are more likely to help a direct impact on the recipients’ lives.
Overall, although I can see the advantages of providing help directly to those communities that need it, I believe that the benefits of providing help via national and international organisations are greater.
