Thinesh Kannan's curator insight, July 1, 2013 6:05 AM

I can see that Adolf Dassler, the founder of Adidas, was from a poor family and worked really hard because of his passion. His father worked in a shoe factory and mother ran a laundry service. He has been trained as a cobbler from a very early age and he loved experimenting with innovative designs and ideas. He split up with his brother after working in a company together. I wonder why he would split with his brother as they had been working together for so long.

I think that Adolf Hassler worked really hard because of his passion of shoes and sportswear. It also tells me that you do not need to be rich to be a founder of a major sportswear company.

Since young , i have believed in a saying that everyone born has a mission to accomplish and that it'll only be accomplished when you work hard for it. Its like a mission and that no matter where or when are you born , the mission will also have to be accomplished before you return to where you came from. Some say , passion , faith and hope is what pushes people on to step up and continue what they're doing and fighting for. You'll have to set a goal for yourself and work hard to accomplish it , find motivations along the way and encourage yourself to keep on going as you may never know what might happen next , you might be just a few steps to your dream, Nothing is impossible as long as you try, Learn from your mistakes and never make them again , learn from it and change along the way , make it better and when time comes , you'll never know how all these bits and pieces in life has helped you gained so much experience and memories that will last a lifetime. Work for your dream , you'll definitely succeed someday in the future, Never give up no matter how hard the road is.

The many dimensions of poverty

 

Usually poverty is thought to be lack of income - for example, a person is considered poor if his/her income is less than $1.25 a day. However, poverty is much more than simply the lack of income. Children living in poverty experience a lack of the material, spiritual, and emotional resources they need to survive, develop and thrive. A certain income does not necessarily mean that a household has all it needs to provide what a child needs for a good start in life. That is why it is important to focus on multidimensional child poverty measures that look beyond income and focus on whether children face deprivations to a range of their basic rights such as health, education, information, nutrition, shelter, water and sanitation.

When children are deprived of these rights in the first years of their life, it can limit their potential for physical, intellectual and emotional development. In turn, many children grow up without the opportunity to be healthy and educated and to feel safe and confident.

This tells us that poverty is not just lack of money or the things necessary. Poverty also means that they lack what's neccessary for the child to start a good life. Having less than $1.25 a day is already bad enough and they are facing a lot more problems for them. They should focus on helping them with schools, health and all the things they need to start a new life

Comments on Steffi’s insight: I agree with what you have stated. All of us ought to be more appreciative and not compare what we have with others. Everyone comes from a different background and I think that it is very important to be happy with what you have and not envy what others have that we do not possess. Like what you have said, the people living in extreme poverty do not even have basic needs for survival yet we are taking for granted how fortunate we are. To be contented with what we have should be where all of us should head towards. In today’s world, youngsters are becoming more pampered and when they do not get what they want or what others have they would be upset which should not be the case.

This is what my dream is working towards: to fight against childhood poverty and prevent the repeated generational cycles,  and also to give the youth a chance at a successful life and to know that their parents situation does not have to become their own!

Reducing poverty starts with children.

Poverty hits children hardest. While a severe lack of goods and services hurts every human, it is most threatening to children’s rights: survival, health and nutrition, education, participation, and protection from harm and exploitation. It creates an environment that is damaging to children’s development in every way – mental, physical, emotional and spiritual.

Some regions of the world have more dire situations than others, but even within one country there can be broad disparities – between city and rural children, for example, or between boys and girls. An influx or tourism in one area may improve a country’s poverty statistics overall, while the majority remains poor and disenfranchised.

  There are so many other articles out on the internet talking about poverty. I chose this one as i feel poverty affects the children the most. For example, children living in the Khewa district of Afghanistan (formerly Taliban controlled).From my knowledge the girls were not allowed to have an education and the boys only received religious education. Such things will affect them in the future like not being able to get a job, thus going into poverty. Luckily UNICEF works with the government on developing broad national planning frameworks like Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSPs) and Sector-wide Approaches to Programming (SWAPs) by doing legislative reforms.

Seeing a picture of a young boy in his old stained sweater, holding his hands tightly inside the sleeve sitting on the rooftop. He is surely a poor child, I told myself. His eyes speak out, he seems like not having enough warmth or food to fill up his stomach that has been empty since when! The background of houses, steel roofs, substandard walls and paint work, it’s a poor neighbourhood.

I have seen worse, young children living beneath the bridge, or those as young as primary 2 students walking along the streets selling chewing gums and tissue paper for a live. I have seen some sleep by the roads, despite the cold weather and the nonstop flow of noisy transportation. As children, they do not deserve that. They have the right to survive, the right to access healthcare, education, have the right to participate in any activities for their age, and the right to be protected. Looking at them I see a paradoxical image of me. From the bottom of my heart I ask myself what justice has been done, that leaves those children suffer? Global organizations have set up the rights for children, but I do not see those rights being carried out, or at least at some area.

UNICEF, is a global organization working on helping children, they step in. By creating countless plans and frameworks, they are striving to give the poor children a better life. Yes providing food, necessities, amenities, water, sanitation, healthcare, housing, and last but not least, education. UNICEF also has raised awareness around the world, and helped effect policies for children’s well-being.

After reading this article,i find that actually poverty is a very dangerous "illness" because if this happen to children , it may cause all these : a severe lack of goods and services hurts every human, it is most threatening to children’s rights: survival, health and nutrition, education, participation, and protection from harm and exploitation. It creates an environment that is damaging to children’s development in every way – mental, physical, emotional and spiritual.

i hope that it will get better and people in the poverty able to get out from it .
