As a blogger, I know how empowering it is to be able to earn from blogging. A friend of mine commented that $5 per post is a small amount of money BUT I tell him that it all adds up at the end of the month.
Just now, I got to know of this program called Bloggers For Hope. I do not know if there are other similar charities but what this program does is to help underprivileged young people earn money from blogging.
According to the website, these young people will be provided with training and internet access and taught how to blog so that they would be sponsored to blog and point their posts to their sponsors.
It is actually a win-win situation where these bloggers will be paid and these sponsors will receive links pointing to their sites, which is important to Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) and advertising. This is a very good program for companies to run their advertising campaigns. They get to help underprivileged young people from poorer countries and empower them through blogging!
