This is my insight using the 4Cs, Connection, Poverty in India is widespread, with the nation estimated to have a third of the world's poor. In 2010, World Bank stated, 32.7% of the total Indian people fall below the international poverty line of US$ 1.25 per day while 68.7% live on less than US$ 2 per day.

Concepts, food shortage, the world’s population could become all but vegetarian by the year 2050 because of water shortages and a spiralling population, scientists have warned. Nine hundred million people already go hungry and 2 billion people are malnourished in spite of the fact that per capita food production continues to increase. Changes, there have to be some change in the food shortage in India. India government have to create more jobs for the citizens in India so that they have enough money to buy foods. Challenges, India have lots of lands and the goverment could use those lands for farming. So that they will have enough foods.

See-think-wonder. After reading this article, I can see that there is shortage of food in India due to poverty. About half the children as young as five years old in India were underweight. The other half stopped growing. These were caused by not having enough nutrition as they do not have enough money to buy food. On the contrary, in Singapore, very few of the children living are underweight. Instead, most of them are acceptable and some are even overweight. Therefore I think that we should not waste food because children in other countries are starving. But here we are throwing away food that we are not able to finish. Hence I think we should learn to “buy what we can finish” so that wastage of food will be reduced. Other than children not having enough food in India, the world might also be short of food in the next 40 years. This is also another reason i think that we should not be wasting food. Otherwise it might lead to the future generation suffering. I think that everyone should cherish what they have, be it food, water or personal belongings etc. I feel that the government should really do something for his citizens that food shortage will stop occurring in India, and the children will be able to grow healthily. This article also made me wonder if the government are trying to help his citizens or leave the food shortage problem like that because it is a difficult problem to solve? Or are the government even aware of food shortage problem in India? Did they even take a look in it?

This is my insight on this article. The world is currently experiencing food shortages, and it could go worse by 2050. In India, so many people are poor, making the number reach a third of the wolrd's poor. If we do not do anything about it the food shortage, more people are going to suffer. Water shortage is also a problem, which causes animals to die out if the animals lack the water. If the animals die, we do not have meat to eat. This is a big problem because need the protein from the animals. 

Ong Yi An's curator insight, February 4, 2013 4:04 AM

While looking at the article, i realised that 8 Indian states have more poor people than 26 poorest African nations. The people there are suffering a hard time as they do not have food. From the picture, i can see that they all have a plate with them. Therefore i infer that they used the plate for begging people to give them food so that they could survive. I believed that the country was not so poor at first by as the economic rises, they could follow it. Therefore, they fell into despair and poverty. There are also some adults in the picture, i think that they maybe the parents of the children. They are poor, thus no money to effort birth control. Therefore, having many children. But being them to the world is also something difficult for them as they must get more food, more money to bring them up. The children will then have to suffer along. Not only the humans have to suffer, the animals have to suffer too. The cause of food shortages are because of the economics, environment and many more.

Lee ZongHan's insight:

This is my insight using the 4Cs, Connections, Concepts, Changes and Challenges. This article is about poverty in asia. Approximately 267 million people in East and Southeast Asia lived on less than $1 per day in 1998. China is also a country suffering from poverty as its country is very big. Southeast Asian countries as Vietnam, the Philippines, and Indonesia also the world’s poorest countries. Nearly half of Asia’s 1.27 billion children live in poverty, lacking of foods, water and shelter. As they are very poor, they do not have enough money for school. In one village, 248 school age boys and 193 girls in the village. Among them, only 46 boys and 15 girls have been admitted in the school.

Yu Bixun's curator insight, February 2, 2013 8:52 AM

I can see that about two-third of the world's poorest people are from Asia. India had more than three hundred million of people living in poverty which is the greatest in the world. And because of this, many are uneducated with more time spent on fishing instead of studying. I think that wars are the main contributions to poverty as wars destroyed many farms, crops, settlements and people which caused many to be living in poverty. I think the children who are fishing or playing should attend schools as education can help them end their poverty state. People who are not in poverty state, we should excel in our studies and work hard in it as we are very lucky to be studying with proper education to look for job when we grow up. I wonder if regaining back their farms, industries and settlements could end their poverty state.

Form the above picture, i can see that there is an adult with 3 children in the picture taken above.It is pretty clear that the people above do not come form a wealthy family.Their clothing tells me that there are in a poor state of living..(see)


The children and the in the picture above did not smile when the picture is taken which i think that they are not happy. It may probally because needs are not met for their daily living.(think)


I wonder what there real problem is, weather is it because of money or other matter. I wonder if the goverment or anyone could help them in anyways.(wonder)

Tan Yang Heng Terence's curator insight, February 2, 2013 9:18 AM

After reading this article, i realised another factor leading to poverty in India. It is the Hinduism belief of caste system in India. It is the main religion in India. India have the most amount of people living in poverty in a countrycomparing to the rest of the countries. Almost all of them living in poverty earned less than $1 a day. Long hours of work and effort is put to that $1 that does not seems much in our eyes. 522 millions of people of India are suffering this unbearable situation. This system prevents many people from trying to break their poverty. It is very unfair as not everyone is given a chance to start out equal. Why does the poverty of the previous generation have to burden the future generations? However, a stop to such practise is equivalent to the lost of the culture. Thus, they will never have a chance to break poverty. They will be continue to be despise by others at the top of the caste system. It is such injustice.

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty Through Education and Job Training

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty Through Education and Job Training | Poverty assigment_LeeZongHan | Scoop.it
For too long, the national dialogue about college education has been focused on access and affordability.

Via britishroses
Lee ZongHan's insight:

This is my insight using the 4Cs, connecting,concepts,changes,challenges. This article is connected to the theme "education" which i already know. The expenses of going to college is increasingly beyond the reach for millions of young Americans and their families therefore, going to college is expensive and many low income families could not afford it, some have work and study at the same time. And due to the low income families that could not afford to pay, that's why first-generation students are four times more likely to drop out after their first year than their more advantaged peers.

Eliza Koh JL's curator insight, February 4, 2013 9:35 AM

Education is the brightest hope for breaking the cycle of multi-generational poverty. But, kids born to poor, under-educated parents aren't likely to succeed at school without help that targets their family situations, and that help is most needed during their earliest years. Newborn was born poor, and nearly half of those babies went on to spend at least half of their childhood in poverty. Poor children were born into "deep poverty" to parents living on incomes less. Parents' low educational attainment was shown to predict persistent poverty for their children more consistently than any other factor the study investigated including single motherhood, family unemployment, young age of parents or living in inner-city neighborhoods. Earning a high school diploma can help break the cycle of multi-generational poverty, but persistent poverty makes earning that diploma a tough challenge. Children who spend more than half of their childhoods poor are more likely than never-poor children to enter their 20s without completing high school. Poverty strikes its most innocent victims hardest of all. Stresses associated with poverty including malnutrition, lack of mental stimulation, poor health care, frequent moving and general insecurity have their direst effect on newborns and children up to age two. Children who live in poverty in those first years of life are likely to complete high school than children who became poor later in childhood. I think what this report is saying is that early interventions are very important and targeting resources to these kids from birth is vital, because home environment in early years is so important to brain development. So when parents are stable, kids are stable.

 

Iris Lee's curator insight, February 4, 2013 10:00 AM

Education is important as we live in an era where you can only gain confidence in people and get a job when you have complete education. Many children who are poor, do not get a chance to go to school and learn. When given the chance, I am sure that most of them would wish to go to school and study. Many of these children work to earn money instead of studying as they cannot afford to pay for it. However, I believe that every child deserves a chance to be educated in a school, regardless of how rich or poor they are. Even though education is not something that can be totally free of charge, why not allow all children to go to school and learn the basics of the subjects, so that they would at least have enough knowledge to get a proper job.

Brandon Lee's curator insight, February 4, 2013 11:31 AM

As highlighted in the article, we could achieve our goals by breaking the cycle of poverty by having a good and fundamental education through a college degree. Students from low income group with a college degree could contribute to society and become role models.The article mentioned that from an award winning program(SRA), graduants could easily seek employment embarking on  a career opportunity into the workforce.

In my opinion, a healthy society needs to nurture a good education program which in turn have good return through rewarding investment in education.

Rewarding careers and new emerging generation to tackle workforce issues, often kept me wondering how one day I would blend myselff into this.

Lee ZongHan's insight:

This is my insight of the 4Cs thinking rountines. Connections, I have already know that 1.2 billion people in today’s world still live without access to electricity. And most people wouldn’t be surprised to hear that nearly 800 millon people don’t have access to a clean water source.Nearly two-thirds of people who lack safe drinking water live on less than $2 a day. Concepts, the main idea and the importance of this article is that water poverty and economic poverty, for example – interconnected, holistic solutions need to be applied, and poverty still exist in many part of the world. Changes, Africa government needs to do something about the poverty and ecnomics in Africa like example giving their citizens a clean water, shelter and a stable jobs. I feel fortunate to be in Singapore, not knowing that many people in other part in the world still suffering from poverty, lack of waters and food.

this article tell people that, that more than 1.2 billion people in today’s world still live without access to electricity but nearly 800 million people don’t have access to a clean water source. Are the same people also struggling to survive without a regular supply of clean water? Unfortunately a lack of access to electricity and clean water is only a part of the problem. The combination of energy poverty, water poverty and economic poverty, for example – interconnected, holistic solutions need to be applied. combining solar-powered water purification systems.but all this education therefore we will need to teach the poor so that they will be able to use the item and maybe they will also be able to manufacture the items themselves so that the wont be reliant on people to supply tthem

My insight using the 4Cs, Connections, Concepts, Changes and challenges. This article is about health care in IndiaI. Some India hospital alone, screens around 2,000 patients a day. The poverty is so bad in India that about 45 million people in the world are blind. About 80 percent of them could be cured through surgery but they do not have so much money for the surgery. They should set up more free surgeries in India for the poor people.
