Alicia Lee's insight:

After reading this article I have learnt more about gender inequality and poverty in Africa. I have always know about these issues in Africa. Education is the key to your future and success. I think that it is really unfair to think that women are supposed to stay at home and take care of children so they do not need to have education. I think everyone should be given education as everyone can contribute to the society. There are even women who does better in both studies and work than men. After reading this, I have learnt that education is a gift from heaven and whoever has that gift have to cherish it. No matter what gender are you, everyone has to be treated equally. I wonder has anyone stood up for these issues and tried to correct it.

Swee Khim's curator insight, January 19, 12:09 PM

This is my insight using (See-Think-Wonder/ 4Cs/ Step inside/ Reporter's  notebook) thinking routine.

Poverty means scarcity in material possession such as food and limited access to education.  African women are deprived of a basic education due to common believe that a woman’s main duty is to be a housewife.

Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom and a stepping stone to a better life. 

After reading this article, I need to change my idea that education is a given.  Every women should be given every equal opportunity as men to be educated as they have the capabilities to contribute to the society.

Navas Ibraahim's curator insight, January 24, 11:31 AM

To me the word 'poverty means the state or condition of having no money or means of any support and having limited access to education.  African women do not even know some of the basic education because they are adapted just to become a housewife.

I also think that education is one of the golden paths to be taken to get out of poverty. 

After reading this article, I think I should change my idea that education is a choice . I think that every single  female should be given equal rights as males to be educated as they are capable of making

As 2014 kicks off, global health and development leaders are increasingly engaged in discussion of the post-2015 development agenda and strategies to end extreme poverty and AIDS. This discussion included how to reframe the AIDS response so that it is comprehensive, in the context of broader global development goals.

Alicia Lee's insight:

After reading this article, I really support all these organisations who are playing a part in helping or ending poverty. I think that poverty is really a serious issue in this 21st century world. Most of us live in cities or comfortable lifes that often we forgotten about the fact that there are people who are not as fortunate as us those people who are living in poverty. I really hope that more organisations be it goverment body or non-goverentment body to help in stopping poverty. If everyone contribute a little , it could really be of a great help. I wonder why are there still so many people living in poverty where now in this 21st century technology and stuffs are getting more advance and economy are also doing well.

Alicia Lee's insight:

After reading this article, I learnt more about poverty. I have always know about the winter season in other countries where many people are experiencing harsh weather. However, it never came to me that during this period of winter or cold season those who are suffering the most are those who are poor. Many people who are living in poverty has no ability to pay for the bill and could not turn on the heater thus they have to live in the cold.What is worst is that not only the adults have to suffered but also the children. At such a young age , the children from poorer family have to endure the cold. This makes me cherish my living conditions now and I have learnt to be grateful for eveything I have. After reading this article, I wonder what causes so many people to be living in poverty.

I agree with Bunaiya's insight .To the point that they could not afford using the heaters during winter season is really heart-breaking. The government should help them and give them money .
Sein's comment, January 29, 3:22 AM
I think that able people and goverment should spent money and effort to help them to keep them warm.Goverment,communities , and the school should work together to support and help those student who are facing poverty so most in need will get help.
Jasmine Choo's comment, February 3, 2:20 AM
I agree with Bunaiya. We all need food, warmth and water to survive. However, some people out there are not as lucky as we are. They need to make sacrifices just to provide. The government should do more to provide for these people. We should also learn to cherish and be satisfied with what we have.
