Poor Us: an animated history - Why Poverty?

Do we know what poverty is? To find out more and get teaching resources, go to www.whypoverty.net The poor may always have been with us, but attitudes toward...
Natasha Fitria's insight:

The video shows how is the life of those in poverty and why are there people living in poverty. These people have no choice , some might be born into a family of poverty or some maybe due to the downfall of their business or because they are bankrupt. The poor continue to think that there is a better tomorrow. They have a positive mindset even though they are poor , while if we were in their shoes, i think some of us might be thinking that there is not a better tomorrow and some might even resort to killing themselves. 

 

This shows that the poor have a stronger and better thinking and understanding than us , they have the responsibility to continue working in order to support their family. This makes me so touched and respect them. I think we should never look down on those in poverty and look up to them instead as they are the strongest and most respectful people.

Natasha Fitria's insight:

In this article,  i can see that this girl is feeling very lonely and sad . I pity her as at such a young age she is suffering from this diesease. I personally have not been critically ill but at her age,  she should be enjoying life and not be living in fear and worrying how much time has she left.

Children who are suffering poverty leads a bad lifestyle. They have no proper growth and is infected with diseases.

Shareezan's curator insight, February 27, 2014 3:38 AM

I know that the poverty is place that's so called not healthy. Place with a lot of litter around. People with no place to stay. Condition is bad. Many children got sick because of air pollution from the vehicles and from the burning of rubbish. A lot and a lot children getting sick and a lot of money wasted because of their hospital bills. This creates poverty. Somehow the government should do something about this. Maybe by making less vehicles and make sure there's not bad air quality. Hospital wise, they should just follow the Britain hospital system. I heard that the Britain's government give free medical check up and free operation if the people is sick and not enough money. There's a question i've been wondering. Why government never do anything to help these poor children?

Natasha Fitria's insight:

Nowadays,  it is hard to find gold naturally. But have we ever wondered how and who are the people finding for gold?  The ones who are willing to work the long hours and hardship are those who live in poverty. They need yhe money despite the work conditions. They dont even get paid the right amount. We should really admire their workmanship.
