To Eradicate Poverty, Water and Sanitation Are Vital

To Eradicate Poverty, Water and Sanitation Are Vital | Poverty Assignment_Cheryl Lim | Scoop.it
Eradicating poverty can involve many varied and innovative approaches according to circumstance. But a universal factor is that development of livelihoods depends on communities enjoying good health and access to education.

Cheryl Lim's insight:

In this article, it made me realised how important water is and not all countries and get clean and drinkable water. The water that those people always come back with might not be clean,but they still drink it as it is their only source of water.Many people lack access of clean water. I think that the government should provide them water so that they can drink clean water instead of dirty water which is unhygenic. I wonder if those people who have ot travel far away to take water have any resentment that they have travel so far just to get access to clean water.

From this article,I have realize the impact of not having access to proper drinking water, this article has taught me the importance of water. Womens living in the less developed country have to travel hours in order to get access to water and the worst thing is the water is not even clean.In our more developed country where people have access to clean water are taking the water for granted, not knowing people in less developed country have to travel for hours just to get dirty water.

After seeing the article, we should realise how fortunate we are when we have a tap with an unlimited supply of water thanks to our goverment, while we look at these people. They travel miles to get water and some even drink dirty water, this shows us that help must be given to these people as they are suffering although they actually can have clean water, its just that we are not acting to help them. Will the world help them, or would they just simply say ''its not my problem'' , this will depend of you, people could be saved if you just take it to concern and help out

Cheryl Lim's insight:

Nearly half of Asia's,1.27billion children, live in poverty. They do not have enough food,safe drinking water, have good health or shelter. Some of them also do not have basic human's needs. Some believed that it is due to the rapid population or weak government.From the picture above, I can see that those children and mother are wearing old clothes which logs more like they are rags. I think that their government should do something to help them break out of poverty .I wonder if the government have ever though about those people.

Yu Bixun's curator insight, February 2, 2013 8:52 AM

I can see that about two-third of the world's poorest people are from Asia. India had more than three hundred million of people living in poverty which is the greatest in the world. And because of this, many are uneducated with more time spent on fishing instead of studying. I think that wars are the main contributions to poverty as wars destroyed many farms, crops, settlements and people which caused many to be living in poverty. I think the children who are fishing or playing should attend schools as education can help them end their poverty state. People who are not in poverty state, we should excel in our studies and work hard in it as we are very lucky to be studying with proper education to look for job when we grow up. I wonder if regaining back their farms, industries and settlements could end their poverty state.

See-think-wonder

Form the above picture, i can see that there is an adult with 3 children in the picture taken above.It is pretty clear that the people above do not come form a wealthy family.Their clothing tells me that there are in a poor state of living..(see)


The children and the in the picture above did not smile when the picture is taken which i think that they are not happy. It may probally because needs are not met for their daily living.(think)


I wonder what there real problem is, weather is it because of money or other matter. I wonder if the goverment or anyone could help them in anyways.(wonder)

Tan Yang Heng Terence's curator insight, February 2, 2013 9:18 AM

After reading this article, i realised another factor leading to poverty in India. It is the Hinduism belief of caste system in India. It is the main religion in India. India have the most amount of people living in poverty in a countrycomparing to the rest of the countries. Almost all of them living in poverty earned less than $1 a day. Long hours of work and effort is put to that $1 that does not seems much in our eyes. 522 millions of people of India are suffering this unbearable situation. This system prevents many people from trying to break their poverty. It is very unfair as not everyone is given a chance to start out equal. Why does the poverty of the previous generation have to burden the future generations? However, a stop to such practise is equivalent to the lost of the culture. Thus, they will never have a chance to break poverty. They will be continue to be despise by others at the top of the caste system. It is such injustice.

Ireland has highlighted the potential of homegorwn food to lift people out  of food poverty. By doing this, they can save money, as well as improve their health and have a nutrious meal on their table.Loooking at this picture, I can see that people are having fun growing their own vegetables. I think this activity is very meaningful and interesting as there are a few advantages doing this. Examples like being able to have a proper meal, saving money , as well as to improve their health. I wonder if other countires do this as well.

There is a vicious, self-reinforcing cycle of poverty associated with mental illness. You become poor. Sometimes through circumstances well beyond your control,

Cheryl Lim's insight:

After reading this article, i came to realised that living in poverty can lead to mental illness. Sometimes, this is due to truma. I can see that in this picture, some people were sleeping o the streets because they have no where to stay which meant that they cannot afford a house to have a roof above their heads. I think that the government of this country should do something about it as it is dangerous for them to be sleeping outside alone. Like this article say, some people might have mental illness due to poverty, which might also put the society at risk. I wonder if those people have any family to help them. If so why didn't their family want to help them?

Eliza Koh JL's curator insight, February 4, 2013 9:13 AM

People who live in poverty are at increased risk of mental illness compared to their economically stable peers. Their lives are stressful. They are both witness to and victims of more violence and trauma than those who are reasonably well off, and they are at high risk of poor general health and malnutrition. The converse is also true: When people are mentally ill, they are at increased risk of becoming and/or staying poor. They have higher health costs, difficulty getting and retaining jobs, are less productive at work, and suffer the social stigma and isolation of mental illness. There are different types of interventions undertaken in several low and middle-income places. The authors first looked at programs intended to improve individual or family economic status and monitored changes in measures of mental health including stress and depression in adults, childhood behavior problems, childhood cognitive development, and adolescent self-esteem.

 

Iris Lee's curator insight, February 4, 2013 9:53 AM

Poverty not only affects the person physically but also mentally as the person will feel more stress with the unknown future, whether they will live or die.  Since their fate cannot be controlled by them, they will have the insecurity and would be more prone to suffer from mental illness. I think that these people should at least be given a chance to earn some money. It is saddening when you see all those people living in poverty lying at the sides of the streets. However, do the people feel this way for them? 

Hilal Iryandy's curator insight, January 25, 2014 4:06 AM

This article shows that poverty led to both mantal illnesses and diseases. They have suffer hunger and stress causing both diseases and emotional breakdowns.They lost their family, friends and belongings. I just wonder what can be done to make their lives happy.

Cheryl Lim's insight:

After reading this article, I can see how important education is. However, some children are not as fortunate as us to get proper education. Even though some children can go to school without paying schoolfees, they will have less opportunities than their wealthier peers. I think that we should all change our mindset of going to school, as not everyone can have proper education . I wonder if other countires are facing this problems as well.

Joycelyn ت✡'s curator insight, February 3, 2013 5:46 AM

The article tells us how poverty impacts the educational opportunities for young people. Children with education will benefit and will help one to get a job in the future. However, those in poverty, will not have enough money to send their children to school. They will grow up and be unable to read or write. This limits the options the children have in life and it will be difficult for them to escape the social trap. Having poverty will not allow one to get a good education, yet education is the best escape from poverty. As we live in a well-developing country, we do not suffer from poverty and has the best education. We should cherish our education and work hard in our studies for our future.
