Roshini Sykes's insight:

Black's and Latino's. the ones who are the most poorest. they both are groups that sometimes come from working families. but its just not enough. isnt it unfair when you get to study and gain loads of knowledge when that few americans cant even spell out their name due to the lack of eductaion. they are all americans. those who were thought to be the richest. there are 16.1 million people in that country itself. imagine the rest. what would be the total. there should be a stop to this before more people have to starve to earn.

This is my insight using see think wonder. I see how child poverty have affect more than 16.1 million childs in america, despite living in a working family. Most of which are black and latino due to racism, they are also less likely to graduate from high school. In my opinion, i feel that the government should invest in educating every child regardless of their race or where they came from .

Theodore Tan's curator insight, February 3, 2013 10:46 AM

More than 16.1 million children in America are poor, but they live in working families. A disproportionate number are Black and Latino. Poor children lag behind their peers in many ways beyond income: They are less healthy, trail in emotional and intellectual development, and are less likely to graduate from high school. Poor children also are likely to become the poor parents of the future.

Ruby Jackson's curator insight, September 27, 2014 12:48 AM

Childhood poverty is a growing issue right here in America. I'm excited to be connecting with the Nonprofit Assistance Center next month to get the ball rolling on fulfilling my dreams of catering to the needs of these children and help working single parent overcome obstacles, revaluate their situations, renew their thinking, and improve their lives.

The Super-Committee’s Inaction: Implications for Ending Homelessness

"Federal resources in the short- and medium-term will be much scarcer, and it will be important to work together to maximize available resources for affordable housing and targeted homelessness programs and to increase coordination with mainstream programs like TANF, SSI, Medicaid, and SNAP (formerly food stamps)."

Roshini Sykes's insight:

i feel that everyone should be ready and willing to lend a helping hand to others who are in need. firstly we need to put ourselves into the shoes of others. if we were them we would have also wanted donations. even though there are already some kind hearts, we should not relent and should provide for those in need. i feel that only we have the ability to help overcome poverty and if we put our mind soul and heart into it, it will work out and there will be lesser people in the world having to suffer.

zarinah azeez's curator insight, February 3, 2013 7:38 AM

Reading the article, i could see that these people have helped the poverty by giving them their need, especially giving them an apartment, but still not all are following such acts, but instead selfish to oneself. I think that everyone should bring out a helping hand, at least by donating some money to these poverty, allowing them to have meals and not let them starve to death so easily.

Coven Chong Weng's curator insight, February 3, 2013 8:37 AM

I see that there is some people who that there are people in poverty and also started to help them by giving them a home so that they will have a place to stay in. I think that we should also do our best to help them as after all we are all human. Its hard to believe why would people refuse to help them .

Jolyn Chia's curator insight, January 25, 2014 7:03 AM

From this article, i can see that many people does not have a proper place to stay in. Those people living in poverty, could not afford money to buy or rent a place to stay in, therefore, some may sleep on the streets or in the garden. this makes me feel that why people couldnt lend a helping hand, just by providing a place for them to sleep, or even give them some money to rent a place. I also wonder why those people who doesnt have a place to sleep in, could not afford to rent a house? is it because they do not hold a job or are they too lazy to go and work? To me, You must work hard to acheive something instead of people lending you a helping hand and you couldnt stand up on your feet to help yourself, and you just wait there for people to keep helping you. You cant always rely on others.Depend on yourself.

World’s 100 richest earned enough in 2012 to end global poverty 4 times over

World’s 100 richest earned enough in 2012 to end global poverty 4 times over | Poverty Assignment_RoshiniTS | Scoop.it
The world's 100 richest people earned a stunning total of $240 billion in 2012 – enough money to end extreme poverty worldwide four times over, Oxfam has revealed, adding that the global economic crisis is further enriching the super-rich.
Roshini Sykes's insight:

then why didnt they end it all? i personally feel that happiness and sufficient amount of everything else is enough to live. you dont possibly have to be the richest person in the world to be the happiest. as long as you are appreciative of what you have, every little thing would matter. and moreover, other then receiving, giving brings one of the greatest joys. if they have the money to end poverty then why not give it a go and make the whole globe happy together?

Though its right to help the less fortunate, why change a point of view. The rich earn their wealth through sheer hard work too, why do they have to give money that they've worked hhard for, to somebody else. We definately must pay back to the society, but in what way? That is what this article makes me wonder. By donating? By getting people with various jobs to educate and help them? Or just give them some money? There is the saying,' Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. ' The things we can do is to provide them with oppotunity can education.

This issue is really not about rich vs. poor. It is about crony capitalism. When you see billionaires like Warren Buffet come out for higher taxes on the wealthy and get a presidential award for it, you know it's a ploy to shut down their competition. These uber rich have their wealth safely tucked away in their offshore accounts and own the politicians.

Rising living costs exposing more families to poverty, report finds

Rising living costs exposing more families to poverty, report finds | Poverty Assignment_RoshiniTS | Scoop.it
LIVING costs for some Australian households have far outpaced CPI figures over the past six years, exposing more people to the risk of poverty, a new report says.

Roshini Sykes's insight:

the costs for the substantial needs of daily necessacities have been increasing rapidly which is causing poverty to many families. they have been having a lack of a few things that were once affordable and now expensive.by increasing the price of everything like this there is also going to be a loss in the market as many families are unable to afford the high cost. 

Yansheng Xu's curator insight, February 3, 2013 5:12 AM

I think one of the reasons for poverty is there is unemployment going on and salary is too low. Living costs includes essentials like food, health, education, housing and daily neccessities are rise. People do not have enough money to pay for their basic needs. I wonder if government have introduced incentives to to ensuresocialstability such as create more jobs and control the prices.

Coven Chong Weng's curator insight, February 3, 2013 8:57 AM

I see that one of the reasons of poverty is because of unemployment going on and also the salary being too low that is not enough for the people's spendage of their basic needs and daily neccessities. I wonder if government have introduce new industries to secure jobs and also to lessen the unemplyment rate .

Lynn Keok's curator insight, January 17, 2014 4:10 AM

Prices of essential items are rising and low income families are struggling to make ends meet, leaving themselves with no savings. Even though the government is trying to help the situation by offering alternative payment options and reviewing taxation and concessions, will this be enough to eliminate poverty in that country? I wonder how the people who control the prices would react when they hear about the people who are barely making ends meet, and what will they do about it?
