Before reading this article, i know that are many children out there, living in poverty. Where education is more of a want than need to people living in the poor countries,It is the other way round to people living in developed countries where we need high qualifications, to get jobs,to earn more money. I feel that every child should be provided with proper education. The richer countries should help the poorer ones to build facilities like school, provide free/low-cost education. I support the idea of setting up of more organisations, to provide financial to those who cannot afford education and to reward those who have done well, by sending them overseas for further studies etc. Everyone should be given a chance to learn, to lead a better life, to bring money back to their family. To end poverty. But without proper education and knowlege, their opportunities to showcase their talent, their capablities would go to waste.
Before reading this article, i know that there many children living in poverty but what really suprised me was the numbers. I didn't expect so many children to be living in poverty. I feel blessed that i am provided with enough food, water, education and a place to live in. In this article, i have learnt that there are still many places in parts of asia with caste systems in place, which are still strictly followed. Those with ancestors belonging to the lower classes could only remain there. I really don't understand why they are still so loyal to the caste system when it is one of the main causes of poverty in asia. The caste system ruins generations of life's. With it in place, those 'belonging' to the 'lower classes' would have no reason to work hard for a better tomorrow, to improve their life. If nothing is to be done about the caste system, The number of children living in poverty may increase in the years to come, with it's tradition spreading to more rural parts of asia.
The world's 100 richest people earned a stunning total of $240 billion in 2012 – enough money to end extreme poverty worldwide four times over, Oxfam has revealed, adding that the global economic crisis is further enriching the super-rich.
Before reading this article, i already know that there are many rich people out there and when i read related articles, i would often question myself ' why can't they end this?' But what really suprised me was that all it needed to end/solve such a large-scale problem was just a quarter of the earnings of the 100 wealthiest/richest people on earth. No one wants to be poor, but unfortunately some do not have a choice. I feel that the rich and more fortunate and should really start doing much more to end global poverty. I would like to challenge this article by posting this question: Why aren't the richest of the rich coming together to raise much more money, to end this problem?

Before reading this article, i know that there are many people in different parts of asia that are living in poverty. With a rising demand in the 21st century, and the lack of natural resources, Humans have researched and found ways to conserve our natural resources. The improvement of technology. However, many people living in the rural areas do not have access to such high-technology equipment and devices. They lack funds and knowledge. They do not receive electricity conveniently from power stations unlike those living in urban, developed settlements. They depend solely on nature at times. I feel very fortunate that I, and the people around me have access to energy, electricity etc. The government should spare a thought, to consider the feelings of the people living in the rural areas. To provide them with the energy services, to improve their living standards.
Before reading this article, i already know that our mental health would be affected if we lived in poor conditions, poverty. Without food, medical support or even a proper place to live in, it would not be suprising if we were to lose the essence of life and go mad. This article tells us that living in poverty does not only affect one physically, but also mentally. Poverty is indeed a scary thing. I feel very fortunate that i am provided with the basic necessities to survive such as food, water, shelter. I feel that all of us should do our part to help the less fortunate.
