Ending Poverty for Good: The Secret's in the Sauce
Huffington Post
If you look at the rhetoric these days, there is great disagreement on how to best, most effectively rid the world of poverty.

Fiqah Nasrin's insight:

 Due to economic reasons many people suffers from poverty. Scrimp and save on each and on everything they could to have a meal for their family. Not all people in certain countries can cope with poverty, they still lack of food and aid given to them. Therefore ending poverty for good might be a struggle as there are quite a number of people living through it. I think with the help of the government and the people poverty could at least be doable. At least these people could have sufficient meal for them. Can we end poverty and make it manageable ? Enough jobs to be given to the people ?

In many countries,poverty are highly suffered. Though they are alot of people trying to help to decrease poverty in the poorer countries,there is still alot who suffers poverty. Everyone wants to end poverty,everyone doesn't want to suffer from poverty anymore. Poverty is something that can be ended,like what the government are trying to do. Many of the poorer countries are so happy when they saw the word 'poverty',they think that there is finally hope to end it and start a normal life. With jobs,with income and food to survive and feed to the family. I wonder why the government did not help. Is it because he is also suffering from poverty too? I wonder how are they going to help the poorer countries. Are they going to provide jobs for them? If they are,is it going to be at their own country or somewhere very far? How long is it going to take for poverty to completely end? If it ends,is it coming back?

Fiqah Nasrin's insight:

From this article i get to know that arising cost of energy, petrol and food lead to poverty. Parents have to scrimp and save their pay to at least put meals on the table. Its rather sad that children cannot have treats or a holiday due to not having money. Through this i have learnt that we should save some of our income for rainy days for the future.

I share Ryan's reaction in knowing that even the United Kingdom an advance first world country face severe poverty issues. This shows that even as the world is keenly aware of the poverty situation in African countries and other third world nations people often forget that poverty is an issue that plagues even the most sophisticated of nations. To know that such acute poverty still exist in countries on the forefront of standard of living, raises the question of Why do even the best nations face the chronic issue of poverty that is the marker of lesser developing nations? This is a fundamental question in my opinion on understanding why poverty is still an underlying issue in most if not all nations.

This article tells me that arising cost of energy, petrol and food lead to an extreme poverty. Parents have to scrimp and save their pay to at least put meals on the table for their family. They have to eat whatever they can afford to as they have no choice.It is sad that children cannot have treats or a holiday due to not having enough money as parents have to pay the house bills.People who have not eaten for a few days came to the food banks that provide meals.When food is given to them they cried and that shows how bad they are struggling in poverty. Through this i have learnt that we should save some money from our income for rainy days for the future needs.

Even though if the country is very rich there is bound to be people to be living in poverty, the rising cost of living and a slow economic recovery has left thousands of families struggling to pay for even the basic for example a family weekly food allowance is $100.Last year 61,000 people across the UK turned to food banks for help the food parcels they are given have enough ingredients to make meals for three days only and people say that lack of food has turn them into crime to get food for them to eat even the government know about that but why they cannot give out a scheme that maybe all left over food in fast food restaurant to be given out to the poor to feed them

Fiqah Nasrin's insight:

 This article tells me how children go through homelessness. This children gets bullied and criticise due to the way they are living. How does the government in the country help in any way? Why are they under-represented or given a voice or have they been helped? Although being indignant about their situation the children should voice out their thoughts more or ask for their rights that could help to make their situation better.

This article tells me how children go through homelessness in the United Kingdom.The children gets bullied and criticize due to the way they are living.They struggle in poverty as they only have limited amount of food.How does the government in the country help these children? Although being indignant about their situation the children should voice out their thoughts more or ask for their rights that could help to make their situation better. They would not want to still live in poverty i think they would want to lead a normal life like the other children without other kids criticize the way you live and have no where to play.Children should not be kept in poverty as they are meant to grow happily with a proper education with their family.

U.S. AID education/poverty infographic | Poverty and Affluence Assignment _ Afiqah_3C_22 | Scoop.it

An excellent infographic that highlights the importance of education in the process of fighting poverty.  Why is education (especially women) so pivotal for development?  Should this change how we think about humanitarian aid?

Fiqah Nasrin's insight:

From this article i get to know that a child who born to an educated mother will benefit more than a child who born to mothers without an education. Quite a number of women in the world are without a proper education. Is it fair to women without a proper education to be condemn to be told that their child will do poorly rather than a child of an educated mothers. Their child would eventually suceed through hard work and support from their family.

From this article, I concluded that education definitely played a big part in our future. With knowledge, we could pass it down to our next generation. With that, they would not need to suffer from hunger as they could use their new found knowledge to feed themselves. With education, they could definitely prevent unplanned pregnancny and practiced birth control and prevent the high death rates of infants dying from lack of nutrients and hunger.

Zemus Koh's curator insight, January 27, 2014 10:11 AM

From this infographic, I can see the importance of education and how it can impact us in our lives. Education is key as it can help us in many ways such as being able to teach our offspings survival skills and also help us to earn more so that we can bring up a family and support them. However important education is, it still comes with a price. As such, many are deprived of this oppurtunity to be educated even though education is somewhat considered a neccessity. Other benefits of education to women include a lesser chance of contracting STDs and also having a higher chance to immunize their children compared to non-educated women. Since education is a key to survival and an important part in our lives, why is it that no effort is made to promote this or to fund more projects that help the less fortunate to get a chance to be educated?

Is it fair to women without a proper education to be condemn to be told that their child will do poorly rather than a child of an educated mothers. Their child would eventually succeed through hard work and support from their family. It stated that most children who drop out from school are girls and most of the people cant read live in developing countries. In this century i am sure that proper education are given to those who could not afford it as everyone want to succeed. I think that it does not matter if a child's mother is without an education as they can succeed if they work hard and opportunity is given to them.
