Why don't America, as a rich country, help Africa and India ?

And make the world a better place.

    I think you're mistaken. America is a continent, not a country. And the countries in America, which are made up of the countries Canada, United States, Mexico and Brazil, could afford to help certain parts of Africa and India. Remember, that not every part of Africa and India are in poverty. One part that has one of the worst poverty in Africa is Sudan. It has a shortage of water, which is what caused this poverty. But thanks to many organizations around the globe that have created water pipes for fresh water, poverty there has decreased dramatically. Now, for India, that's another story. There really is not much poverty there. The reason why its dirty, which is what makes people confuse it with poverty, is simply due to its large population. It is the 2nd largest populated country on Earth, and I have found that the larger the population in an area, the more dirty it will be. Take California for example. It is the most population state with 30,000,000 people, and it has the highest pollution in the United States, which is what causes all the forest fires you see on television news. Take New York City as well. It has the largest city population in the US and it is the dirtiest. And Lalbagh Thana, the most populated neighborhood in the world in India. It is in the dirtiest country, so its most likely pretty dirty. Hope this answers your question!

    From 1946-2012 India received $65 billion in aid from the US.  Every year the US gives about $8 billion in aid to African nations.

    Americans only care about themselves, Why do you think they stolen the east territory of the indians and the the west territory from mexicans?... americans  claim to be "patriotic" and "heroic" but they are nothing more than a bunch of thieves and murders.

    Giving money to poor nations won't solve their problems. Besides, there's already a lot of poverty in the U.S.

    I think there are many useful things we can do that might improve their life conditions. Not spending so much money on futile things is one of them (many of the items we purchase in Western nations are produced in 3rd world nations, and the workers are often exploited).

    Africa isn't a country. It is the second largest continent, one fifth again as big as the whole of North America from Panama to Greenland. It has fifty four countries and some of them are very rich indeed.

      Per capita, Americans are the second most generous people on the entire planet by a WIDE margin.  But in terms of overall donations, we give more than the next few nations combined.  But even we cannot save the world.

    There is little you can do when a peoples' problems stem from ongoing hate and ignorance.  If a nation suffered a tragedy like an earthquake or a disease outbreak, then others can readily step in to provide aid.  But if you have a people who just enjoy murdering each other, refused to overcome centuries of indifference, and prefer to latch onto archaic belief systems that intentionally repress them then... well, they're screwed.
