Fabregas Vengaadesh Cena's insight:

This is my insight using the See-Think –Wonder thinking routine. I can see from this article that there is a woman carrying a child in her hand and there are two children standing next to her. They depict a common scene in India where a family is suffering due to poverty. I also found out that India is the poorest country in Asia and that Asia is accounted for two – thirds of the world`s poorest people. It is also due to the caste system in India which also contributes to the poverty as this system keeps many families poor from generation to generation by assigning certain groups of people to low status. I wish someone would lend them a helping hand and rescue them from their troubles

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.

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.

Ending Extreme Poverty in the Congo: Education

A discussion and pictorial view of poverty in the Congo. It's about the hunger, illiteracy, and suffering endured by poor Congolese. Congo is the poorest countries in central Africa.

Fabregas Vengaadesh Cena's insight:

From this article I can understand that due to poor sanitization many people cannot attend school. I guess this is because they are too ill to attend school and if they do the disease would spread and it would slowly become an epidemic. The poor also do not have enough money to buy medicines of get medical help. It is mainly the girls who are affected because there is not many medical benifits there.Hence we as students should try our best to provide some help for the poor like books and writing materials.

The people living in poverty carry alot of diseases and thus the diseases is a setback for their education. Some of these people are too sick to go school. Some even die from these diseases. Girls drop out of school when they reach puberty because of inadequate sanitation facilities at school.They get these diseases due to unsafe drinking water, no proper meals and others. They are lots of ways to stop this so that they can have proper education. We could raise funds to buy safe water for them so that they could concentrate on their education and not the diseases. We could also help them by donating books so that they could refer to it.

seah wan ling's curator insight, January 21, 2014 9:31 AM

I always knew that poverty had connections with not having an education and I find it very sad that children in congo stops going to school once they reach puberty because of the poor sanitation. Education is very important, and everyone should have a chance to get an education.  This article changes my attitude towards education, that anyone who has a chance to be able to get an education should take it and treasure it. After reading this article, I wonder if anyone has tried to do something about their poor sanitation.

Ho jun rong's curator insight, January 26, 2014 7:35 AM

This is my insight using C-E-C thinking routines. Firstly, i knew that lack of hygenic food would cause problems for students. I also knew that females are mistreated in some countries. What i did not expect was when the article reported that diarrhoea is the biggest child killer in Africa. Before i read the article, i had never thought that lack of food hygiene can be the deadliest killer. This led me to wonder whether the government knew of this problem and how they are going to solve them.

Rising Food Prices Intensify Poverty, Hunger In U.S. And World

Rising Food Prices Intensify Poverty, Hunger In U.S. And World | Poverty Assignment _ L.Vengaadesh | Scoop.it

"Global food prices continue to rise," begins a recent report by the World Bank. Between October 2010 and January 2011, the Bank's food price index increased by 15 percent, and the global prices of wheat, maize, sugar and edible oils have all increased sharply.

Fabregas Vengaadesh Cena's insight:

This is my insight using See-Think-Wonder thinking routines. I can see many people queuing outside a centre. Which I think may be place where people collect food which is being rationed. This could be because they cannot afford the products being sold as they may be too poor. I wonder why no spares a thought for them. In fact increasing the price of the food prices intensifies the people suffering from hunger. If the prices continue to increase , less people would be able to eat and soon being able to feed a family of four would be a difficult task.

Daryl Tan's curator insight, February 3, 2013 2:11 AM

With the food prices rising globally, more and more people in U.S and the rest of the world are having more difficulty putting food on the table. In 2007 and 2008, prices of many staple crops doubled in a year and millions went hungry. Between October 2010 and January 2011, there was another food price-spike.

Years ago, the food crisis used to be widespread only in poorer countries. However, this is not so now. As the food crisis looms ahead, I wonder if the world governments would be able to resolve this seemingly urgent situation?

Mohamed Hasir Marican's curator insight, February 3, 2013 5:26 AM

Before i read this article, i thought that only Asia and Africa are experiencing poverty. However, this article has showed me that even Americas face such issues. In this article it states that 16 percent of people in the Americas have gone hungry due to finances and rising food prices. If this trend of rising food prices continues, then more and more families will fall in to the category. It is going to be a great challenge for the government to solve this problem but they have to do something about it. I have learnt that we should never take things forgranted as we might not know when we are going to fell into the category.

Jasmine Tan's curator insight, March 2, 2013 12:21 PM

See. Think. Wonder.

From this article, I can see that poverty has actually reached most parts of the world, and that some countries are getting much more affected by it. As our natural resources are being used up consistently, food prices are uncontrollably increasing by much more than it should be.

It makes me think of how the other countries which are worse then the amount of people facing poverty in the U.S. are going to survive and overcome this problem. Does anyone actually help them? Or are they just pushed to one corner, left to die alone due to starvation? It makes me think of the fortunate people these days who do not appreciate what they have.

This article makes me wonder if the future generations would be abe to cope with the more drastic price increases in the future, where more of our natural resources are gone. t makes me wonder, how are the people who are originally poor, able to make sure they have enough money or food or survival needs to keep themselevs alive.

Fabregas Vengaadesh Cena's insight:

This is my insight using See –Think –Wonder thinking routine. From this article I can see there is a shabby looking man sitting on the roadside where he is being offered water from a man. The place is very dirty. Poverty creates illness as people are forced to live in such poor conditions which where they are bound to catch a disease or two. These poverty stricken people suffer everyday without decent shelter, clean water and poor sanitation facilities. I wonder how we could help out these people and makes their lives less of a struggle.

Much of today’s conversation addressing the increasingly important connection between water and energy is focused on solutions applicable to urban centers and developed nations.

Fabregas Vengaadesh Cena's insight:

This is my insight using See-Think –Wonder thinking routine. I see a boy drinking from a tap.  I think he is drinking from the tap as that is his last option for a drinking source. This is just of many things people do just to get water. So we should appreciate every last drop of water and not waste   ; example throwing water filled plastic bottles at soccer players. Water is one of the essential things for human beings to live. I cannot imagine living without drinking at least one glass of water a day.

this article tell people that, that more than 1.2 billion people in today’s world still live without access to electricity but nearly 800 million people don’t have access to a clean water source. Are the same people also struggling to survive without a regular supply of clean water? Unfortunately a lack of access to electricity and clean water is only a part of the problem. The combination of energy poverty, water poverty and economic poverty, for example – interconnected, holistic solutions need to be applied. combining solar-powered water purification systems.but all this education therefore we will need to teach the poor so that they will be able to use the item and maybe they will also be able to manufacture the items themselves so that the wont be reliant on people to supply tthem

Before reading this article,i know that poverty means that u are struggling alot on making a living.But after reading this article,i was shocked to know that more than 1.2 billion people in today’s world still live without access to electricity and 800 million people don’t have access to a clean water source. and nearly two-thirds of people who lack safe drinking water live on less than $2 a day.how can 800 million people not have access to clean water source?water is essential for human to survive and without it,tons of life will be lost so i hope that people can give those children living in poverty a proper education as only with proper education can you have a brighter future and break free from poverty
