I think that the methods stated in  this article are quite efficient and seme to be effective. For example, the second method, center of community change, seem to be effective as jobs are involved. This article seems to impose  the quote of start small and end big too.

Jia Ling's curator insight, January 20, 2014 7:46 AM

This article link to poverty as the people are trying to build an Anti-Poverty movement. What I really like about this article is that the writer is willing to create a movement to stop the poor from suffering, and as well as to lead a better life like the average people in the world. The few points are : Coalition of Immokalee Workers, Center for Community Change, Children's Healthwatch, Half in Ten, Occupy our Homes/Home defenders league. The main action in this text is how people can come together to stop poverty in some countries. This article is also focusing on how the poor and fight for living-wage jobs, stable life and paying for the basic things in life like taxes, utility bills etc. 
One question I would like to ask is : Are there anymore people who are willing to stand up for the poor?

The Americans need a major change to help the families strugglig to survive on just $19,530. Among all the effort taken to overcome poverty, i think 2 of them will make alot of difference.

 

Firstly, the Center for Community Change.

 For 45 years, the CCC has worked with low-income communities and local grassroots organizations to overcom poverty. The CCC plans to work with grassroots organizations at the local and state levels, and then form coalitions at the national level, to demand policies that create good jobs with good wages. I feel that this a very thoughtful act.

 

Nextly, the Children's Healthwatch.

 CHW collects data at pediatric clinics and hospitals to show the real impact of public policy choices on the health, nutrition and development of children up to the age of 4. CHW has also demonstrated the importance of affordable housing for children’s health, showing that children in households that move frequently or fall behind on rent are significantly more likely to be underweight, in fair or poor health, and at risk for developmental delays than their stably housed peers. And CHW has examined energy insecurity, showing that children in families struggling to afford utilities and keep their homes sufficiently heated or cooled are more likely to be food insecure, hospitalized at some point since birth, or to have moved twice or more in the past year.

 

 With these information collected, CHW can take measures to ensure that the children are not left behind alone to suffer in poverty.

I will agree that poverty is not only people not having money to feed themselves, but poverty is very big issue that affects the underpreveliged in many ways. Supplying the poor with money only tackles one of the many issues that they face and more help will be needed for them

I agree, poverty is more than giving money out to everyone, like the saying goes, give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime

Donating money to the poor has its pros and cons. The poor can spend it on health care, housing and education and so on. However, in a long run, these people in poverty might become dependent on it. They might take the help and supports for granted as well. Hence, donating money to the poor is necessary but there must be any other solutions to help them, too.
