Genomes of adults raised in poor or rich households have distinctive patterns of epigenetic change – perhaps a response to early adversity (RT @JoelCarnazzo: Childhood poverty leaves its mark on adult genetics - New Scientist -
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?
Before reading this infographic, I already know that education is very important and it applies to those people living in te developing countries. Based on the infograhic, I can see the benefits and importance of education and how education change the lives of many and impact them for example, educated mothers are 50% more likely to immunize their children and three times less likely to contract HIV/AIDS. And one which helps reduce poverty stated from the infographic is that indivual earnings increases by 10% for each year of school completed. Hence, educated people will be able to take care of themselves even better since they know what is good for them and if the cycle of education goes on, in the future, most people in that developing country would be able to be educated enough to support themselves and their family and also able to break free from poverty.
I knew that living in the 21st Century, education is very important for our future; however, not many kids around the world receive proper education, even in the developed countries, because of their family’s financial state. And in order to get a good stable job, you must at least be a degree holder but, the expense of college is increasingly beyond the reach for millions of young Americans and their families. Thus because of this, not many graduate from college and may not know how to choose a career path, causing them not find a good job and in the end living in poverty. This situation leads to the cycle of poverty. It is important that a person gets a basic level of education so that they could get a job to support their family and give their children education. This led us to think whether we as a society should invest more in education.
Before reading the article, I already know that there were people living in developing country who do not have access to clean drinking water. This article highlights and shows the statistic of the people over there having no access to both clean water and electricity, well known that more than 1.2 billion people in today’s world still live without access to electricity and nearly 800 million people do not have access to clean water. What’s worse is that nearly two-thirds of people who lack safe drinking water live on less than $2 a day. This article also states that people were sent to help built solar-powered water purification systems to pump and purify the local water source to help the people living there to have the access to clean water. This led me to wonder why the government of that developing country didn’t play a part to help the people to break free from the water-energy-poverty nexus.
Services that combine access to modern energy for heating, cooking and electricity, with measures that generate cash, supplement incomes and improve health and education would be the most effective energy solutions in Asia and the Pacific,...
Before reading this article, I already know that most people living in rural parts of Asia are facing poverty and unable to enjoy the privilege to be living in a technologically advanced environment like us. This article state that the UN Development Programme (UNDP) combining energy access with anti-poverty project for people over there to heating, cooking and electricity, supplement incomes and improve health and education, telling us UN trying to improve life and reduce the bad impacts on health and the environment . However, the energy services doesn’t help much with reducing poverty but instead transform people from being ‘poor without energy access’ to ‘poor with energy access”. This led me to wonder why don’t the UNDP start from developing education over there since education is very important and help reduce poverty.
