Should you give money to beggars?

Full story: The Ashland Daily Tidings

Down a dusty street from our house in Niamey is a bakery called "Les Delices" where you can buy a baguettes for thirty cents, a croissant for fifty cents, and a small assortment of pastries.

I also live in Niamey. Many times if I have some cookies or crackers (I buy the small packages that can be purchased for about 10 cents)I will give those instead - or some fruit. That way I can make sure that they get a little something to eat, even if it isn't much.
