A single mother finds herself in the middle of a debate about poverty and the welfare state in Britain.
Ryan Ho's insight:
This women amaze me, though she is dropped out of school when she was sixteen years old and went to having an overwhelming amount of debt, she is still able to keep going. Is her son really that important to her? She was so influential in the news that she was recruited by a party for a campaign. She used to get her income and buy her food by Sainsbury’s leftovers campaign. Currently she lives in a new apartment. This leaves me with one question. Is this a step for Britain towards passing a bill for helping those in poverty or will they ignore it and spiral more into poverty?
Poverty hits children hardest. While a severe lack of goods and services hurts every human, it is most threatening to children’s rights: survival, health and nutrition, education, participation, and protection from harm and exploitation. It creates an environment that is damaging to children’s development in every way – mental, physical, emotional and spiritual.
Some regions of the world have more dire situations than others, but even within one country there can be broad disparities – between city and rural children, for example, or between boys and girls. An influx or tourism in one area may improve a country’s poverty statistics overall, while the majority remains poor and disenfranchised.
There are so many other articles out on the internet talking about poverty. I chose this one as i feel poverty affects the children the most. For example, children living in the Khewa district of Afghanistan (formerly Taliban controlled).From my knowledge the girls were not allowed to have an education and the boys only received religious education. Such things will affect them in the future like not being able to get a job, thus going into poverty. Luckily UNICEF works with the government on developing broad national planning frameworks like Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSPs) and Sector-wide Approaches to Programming (SWAPs) by doing legislative reforms.
Poverty solutions of various approaches have been underway for decades, many of which have shown only mixed results. While the global middle class is still growing and many developing countries have made impressive gains, clearly more work can be done. Government and NGOs are unable to solve poverty on their own; and therefore the past few years have witnessed a trend of businesses partnering with non-profits to take on the globe’s most pressing challenges. Market-based solutions are starting to show results as the world’s poor have always proven they want a stake, not handouts, in their local water sources, environment and economy.
So how can business work with NGOs, local governments and directly with the world’s poorest citizens on finding poverty solutions?
I did not know before that there are other ways for Multinational companies to help the poor besides through philanthropy. They do so by educating women who to use technologies. These same women are being hit the hard by poverty. On that note, in Hungary a company helped pushed the Hungarian parliament to pass a law on making domestic violence a crime. Since its a not only a moral issue to them too. The PepsiCo and a non-profit organization teamed up to give out microloans to the less fortunate to pay for clean. This just opened my eyes to ways companies gain profit by serving the community.
