LAST week Brazil’s president, Dilma Rousseff, made an audacious claim: extreme poverty in Brazil will soon become extinct. Brasil Sem Miséria (Brazil without...
Ryan Ljr's insight:

This article shows us an example what a government can do to aid the people who are in extreme poverty . In Brazil , a federal programme, launched in june 2011, has added 2.8 million extremely poor people into its programme adding up to a total of 22 million people giving $35 per household member , per month .

This article shows us the simple things that the government of upper-middle-income countries can do to lift the people above the poverty line although the sum of money may not be much as said in the article that 70 reais does not go far per person but essential to further support the poor,

I agree with Ryan’s comment on governments taking active steps towards mitigating poverty in their countries. Brazil’s president has put forward an audacious but achievable goal; however as Brazil works towards fulfilling the goal of its president it must do more than just creating a lifeline for those hovering around the poverty line. Other long term solutions must be put into action or developed upon such as education for the poor. Insuring that should government welfare funds dry up beneficiaries of welfare programmes do not get plunge back into poverty. By preparing for the long term Brazil can look forward to sustainable improvements to its poverty situation.

Ryan Ljr's insight:

This article provides us with key statitics and infomation about the correlation between invesetment in education and the outcome of the countries economical growth . Not only does it shows how invesment towards education has an impact on the countries economy this also article brought up an intereseting fact about parents not seeing the importance and benefits in sending their child to school ,especially children from low-income families , this in which brings up another factor , the quality of education given towards the students and how the country's best capitol should be pumped into the education system increasing the quality of education , not only it also increases ones knowledge and skill which more employers are looking out for but assuring parents that spending on their childs education or to upgrade their own skills is worthwhile and necessary investment .

another key factor in assuring parents that sending their child is worthwhile , is raising awareness of the importance and benefits to parents through factual and informative means for example in newspapers or brochures and even a schools open house , where one can learn more of the schools environment and programs which better equip the generation of students ahead with skills necessary for employment .

The government's investment in education would definitely show the amount of poverty that the country is suffering, but the main problem with poverty is that countries in poverty and getting increasingly poorer and without money to even pay back the gigantic debts they owe, how can they invest enough in poverty? I feel it is more important for the major developed countries to withdraw the debts that these countries are under, as well as to provide aid as their country is already well developed but there are others out there that are suffering and underdeveloped. Once the countries in poverty do not have to worry about their debts, they can pour money easily into education and make it compulsory up to a certain level. It is important as education is a poor man's key out of poverty and with compulsory education, it means that majority of the people would have the potential to get out of poverty. If the important measures are not taken first though, the government would not be able to build or fund schools with adequate materials and they would still have a majority percentage uneducated.

Yes, I totally agree with Ryan's point of view. To add on, I feel that with education, can then people get out of poverty. Education is very important as it can improve on our future lives by getting a good paying job. I feel that inadequate education might lead to unemployment, social upheaval, instability and above all poverty. In my opinion, education is everyone's top priority. As stated that education is recognised as a route out of poverty and a way of promoting equal opportunities, education should not only be offered to the rich and middle income families. Education, in my point of view should be given to everyone including the poor. This is because, if they are given a chance to get proper education, they might be able to come out of their poverty line.

Gallup study: 1 in 5 worldwide living in extreme poverty | Al Jazeera America | Poverty E-learning assignment | Scoop.it
China makes huge gains in eradicating extreme poverty, while Africa lags, according to Gallup data
Ryan Ljr's insight:

this article provides us with key statistics on the people living in extreme poverty which is defined by the world bank of living with less than $1.25 per day and also the abitious goal of slashing the global extreme poverty-rate to 3 percent by 2030 after analyzing data from 131 countries compiled from the time period of 2006 to 2012 finding that a third of the respondents lives with just $2 a day .

Not only this articles raises awareness on the statistics of the people living in poverty it also provides us with good news of the slow but progressive decrease in percentage of the people living in poverty for example china , in six years the percentage of people living in extreme poverty has been reduced to 6 percent from 26 percent with accordance to the latest data .This also shows large-scale urbanization that has been redistributed turning rural residents into cities where industrial jobs are more productive increasing income .

slowly with more opportunities being offered to the less well to do families, extreme poverty can be reduced to the minimum
