Jasmine Choo's insight:

From this article, I see that most countries in Asia take up most of the world's population and most of the countries have weak leaders to serve their country, resulting in lack of clean food and water, education and medical facilities. Without these needs, the country will not get better, as only the rich gets to enjoy these needs that are taken advantage of. The government should make a plan for each aspect for example giving further subsidies for education for the poor or trading harvests for money and education for their children. Therefore, I wonder, what has the government been doing to improve the country and what have they done to help those suffering from poverty? Would anyone among those suffering step up to lead the country if they knew better?

Wealth are not distributed widely well around the world. Poverty in Asia are also caused by rising population growth and population growth can't be controlled..Food supply, safe water and good education are not sufficient in these poor countries.

Jasmine Choo's insight:

It is great what they are working on, giving back to the community, helping those who deserves a helping hand. They came up with a proper plan with a clear outcome - to eliminate homelessness in the area. They are trying their best to help out those who are in need. By partnering with other non-profit assosiations, companies, bussinesses, communities and government, they are creating better lives for these people and doing amazing things to help them out. People who want to do great should take Fairfax-Falls Community as an example, striving to create equality amongst us.

 

NO ONE DESERVES TO SUFFER FROM POVERTY!

Ong Meng Kiat's curator insight, January 19, 2014 9:33 AM

This article, indeed, shows success if it is achieved to those that have helped the poor people, that their efforts were not in vain.Those non-profit and charitable organisations working together, hand in hand to address the problem of homelessness. Many hard work must be done to help these people without homes which includes finding funding and manpower to build homes for these people. In the Maslow's hierachy of needs, housing, or property is ranked second from the bottom of the pyramid, which shows that this is largely needed to all humans, no matter rich or poor, therefore a well and stable house is one of the basic needs to these people. It would be the last thing that people would want to be homeless, roaming the streets and sleeping anywhere from the pavements, to the roads. It would make the country an unhygenic place to live in for everyone. A nice cosy home is where everyone would expect going to, to rest after a tiring day. Therefore, I support the non-profit charitable orgainsations in their quest to address the problem of homelessness and make the people without homes have homes, to get a better life for their future. We can contribute small by donating to these orgainsations, or render physical help to building homes. For the rich people, they can set up their non-proft orgainsations and spread awareness about this to more people, so that more help can be rendered to these homeless people. The people that are trying to end homelessness in that particular place in ten years are indeed very brave, to change this place within a short time span of 10 years.

Therefore, if they are daring enough to set themselves this challenge, well-off people in other parts of the world could also challange themselves to do this, and change the lives of the poor people, letting the country advance to greater heights as a whole together. Lending your greatest support to these organisations are greatly appreciated!

I agree with what Jasmine said. People should not suffer poverty.

The War On Poverty 50 Years Later: What Has Changed?

The War on Poverty is still being fought 50 years later, and we have yet to make any real strides on the majority of Americans being able to live above the poverty line.

Jasmine Choo's insight:

"Hungry children cannot learn...", yes hungry children cannot learn, from experience. Although efforts are being put in to help those suffering from poverty, it is still not enough. Free lunch on one day or two is not enough to fill the stomach for a week! The food that they are given is not even delightful. If you really want to help, why give them food that is meant for your dog. However, giving these people too much attention might trigger them into thinking that they must depend on us for everything, which is a bad thing, unless you are a comitted donor.

Yes, I agree that hungry children cannot learn. When someone does not eat, he doesn't has the energy to think. When poor children can;t even afford to buy food.. how can they even afford good education??! Donors should be very sincere about what they donate.. giving foods that are equally meant for animals.. are really NOT acceptable ):

I agree with Jasmine that hungry children cannot learn. When one is in a very difficult position as they have no food , they would do anything for food to fill their stomach. They cannot cope with the high living demand therefore no great progress is being made. People living in poverty are grateful to the donors for anything they give however giving foods that are equally meant for animals are cruel.
