Kevan Tan's insight:

What might the author perceive?

The poor are getting less poorer, and it has a significant effect on some people. At this rate, poverty might as well be eradicated from the world. On the brighter side, poverty is starting to decline in numbers.


What might the author believe?

The author believes that optimism to stop poverty from increasing is already on the focus, and the main aspect is to aid the poor with whatever they lack. Poverty would then be wiped out if this continues.


What might the author care about?

The author cares about extracting the optimism of declining poverty and its significance made on the poor who are initially living in bad conditions.

What might the author perceive?

Poverty can be turned around if communities or even individuals lend a helping hand to the poor.


What might the author believe?

Poverty is very cruel, and the fact that one lives in scrappy conditions show how poor one is, and that it is really something that has to be prevented.


What might the author care about?

He cares about focusing on how the societies can help the poor to get a better condition rather than leave them alone, and in circumstances where they are malnourished, they also lack the love and support.

Via britishroses, Kevan Tan
Kevan Tan's insight:

What might the author perceive?

That poverty is serious and if not treated, it could really be a huge problem for the country.Poverty is spreading really fast, and it could be a staggering huge number of people living with food insecurity. Many disadvantages like taxes and inflation of prices in food could possibly be some of the causes of poverty.

 

What might the author believe?

The "staggering" fact that one in 10 families in Canada lived in food insecure households. It found that charity-based food aid had proliferated and nearly 900,000 Canadians were accessing foodbanks each month.

 

What might the author care about?

The author cares about being aware of the prevalence of poverty and raises out causes, reasons and solutions that could minimise poverty.
