What do your pupils think about overseas aid?

    We need your help with a spot of research for a new project.
    What are the most difficult questions your pupils ask about overseas aid?
    Many thanks,
  2. I can honestly say that I don't think I've ever been asked a question about overseas aid.
    More common questions are:
    "Are you married sir?"
    "What's your first name?"
    "Can I go to the toilet?"

    As a former teacher, I remember those sorts of questions only too well! Another favourite was 'Why do we have to learn this?' and sometimes I could see their point...

    Examples of questions we've recieved so far include:

    *Why are some countries getting poorer despite receiving
    *How do aid charities ensure that their aid is
    *How do aid charities ensure that a variety of
    stakeholders are included in their projects?
    *How do charities decide what projects/areas to focus on?
    *Why do charities "waste" so much money on
    leaflets that most of the time get put straight into the bin?

    What else should we add to our list?
