Helping people in poverty should not be for the sake of it, you must set your mind that you really want to help no matter what challenge appears. 2
Understand reality. You must have a feel of poverty, for example, go without food or be on an extended fast. Not just a food fast. No TV, radio, newspapers, car, or the purchase of anything new. Shop at thrift stores. Give all the money you saved to a good charity. 3

It doesn't have to be a lot, but it should be something significant. Give up gourmet coffee and give the money to a homeless outreach. Drive less to save gas. Carpool. Stop the special trips to the store. Walk where you can. Give the money you saved to a soup kitchen. It can be the money you spend on chocolates, it can be the money that you spend on console games. Every little counts, remember that. 4

Tutor the person if you can or find him a place for education. Education can make the poor stand on their feet. 6

"When you see a person who has been given more than you in money and beauty, look to those, who have been given less." 9
