The Female Face of Poverty

The Female Face of Poverty | Personal & Professional Growth | Scoop.it
Fifty years after the War on Poverty began, millions of women are still struggling to get by.
Bridget Hardy-Everett's insight:

I was stunned to see 2.8k people recommended and shared this article to be read, something really needs to be done about.poverty. There are things being done,  but is it enough?  I firmly believe every person receiving public assistance or of low income status should have oppoortunities to better themselves.  That is why i am determined to provide free resoures.  

 

There are a millon professional mentoring organizations,I know because I belong to some of them. But, also I am one of many women who had received public assistance at one time, but these days I am always working on  personal self-development, enhancing skills such as public speaking, writing, and enhancing my technical skills.  All these I have found to be the key in growing personally and professionally, however, enhancing these skills with a mentor is a smoother transistion for people getting off public assistance or trying to get over a low income rut.  

 

For example, in my program if someone needs someone to practice interview questions with them the night before, or need some tips on what to wear, or just a coversation about their fustration of being in a poverty state; then a mentor or hotline will be available.  

 

Most people don't understand or could careless that when people come from long line of poverty, it is not so easy to pull themselves up by the bootstraps, they are not even sure where to start, and in my experience most help is not real help.

 

As a welfare reformed woman who works hard to stay off the system, I want to give back freely.  I have learned that knowledge has and holds power!

Insyirah Jamal's curator insight, February 24, 2014 5:51 AM

From what I know about poverty, it is a very sad thing. 
But after reading the article, I realised that poverty is not something to pity about but instead something we should try to prevent. It is because, once we start living in a poverty life, it will be very hard to get out of the living condition. Now I am curious as to how exhausting it is when they are living in poverty and how the parents can cope living in poverty without complaining

Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Solution to Poverty

Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Solution to Poverty | Personal & Professional Growth | Scoop.it
Wikimedia CommonsWhen Americans stop to commemorate Dr. Matin Luther King, Jr. each year, we tend to do a great disservice to the man's legacy by glossing over his final act as an anti-poverty crusader.
