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?
I feel that this infographic is artistic and allusive. It clearly shows us that the only way for us to get out of poverty is through education. It tells us the importance of education and the need to study hard. Similarly, i strongly feel that the need to study hard not only applies to the poor but it also applies to us as well. Even though Singapore is known as one of the richer countries in the world, poverty is also susceptible to us as well. If we do not study hard and get academic qualifications, we might also fall into the state of poverty. Still, I am encouraged upon hearing that there is ultimately a way for us to overcome poverty. As long as one studies hard with the guidance of educated family members and teachers around him/her, he would be able to score well, attain academic qualifications, get a sustainable job and escape from poverty. However, I wonder about the challenges people face in getting employed. Since more and more people are studying harder just to get out of poverty or to get a higher pay, wouldn't this limit the chances of the poorer ones getting employed due to a competition for jobs in this field?
Eradicating poverty can involve many varied and innovative approaches according to circumstance. But a universal factor is that development of livelihoods depends on communities enjoying good health and access to education.
This article has created a huge impact on me. It has changed my perspective of things drastically. As someone who has always taken water for granted, I feel apologetic to these people. In Singapore, many do not treasure water. They do not use water sparingly. Instead, they waste large amounts of water on a daily basis. In factories, we discard a considerable amount of processed water. We see it as dirty and used water which cannot be recycled or used anymore. However, these water is very precious in the poor people's eyes. They would be elated to even drink this water so as to prevent themselves from dying of dehydration. I feel sympathetic to know that such things we do not cherish can mean so much to the poor. Water is linked to poverty as without clean and drinkable water, children would fall sick and become more prone to other illnesses and diseases. It is essential for children to be in the pink of health to allow them to attend school and receive a proper education to escape poverty. Also, being healthy enables them to save on medical costs. Having clean water also enable families to grow plants and crops which can fetch money. This can also help them secure a monthly income. I reckon that governments should put in more effort to look into their countries' situations and make changes to their way of governing the people. They should put the welfare of these people in higher regard and show greater care and concern for these people by taking measures to improve this situation. To sum it up, i feel that everyone in this world should do their part to help the poor by using water sparingly and conserving water by reusing, reducing and recycling it.
This article tells me how dominant poverty is among people living in Asia. Countless people survive on less than a dollar a day. It was apalling to hear about individuals whose plights are dependent on their religions. Although the caste system is now anachronous, it is admittingly used in India to dictate a family's precedence. Emphatically, this aids in improving the poverty situation in these countries. I feel that poverty in such countries is certainly not one's desire but one's fate. Hence, living on scraps of food is inevitable. Being uneducated, they lack the knowledge of telling the difference between the good and the bad. Hence, they are unable to see the need in studying hard, breaking free from poverty and striving for a better future. This makes me feel extremely contented and blessed for all that i possess.
1. Why is the government not taking any measures to mitigate this situation?
2. Shouldn't people from richer countries come to these countries and advocate the importance of education to children so as to enable them to break free from poverty?
3. Why do these people accept their fate just like that? Why don't they find means to seek help from the higher authorities?
Health is a person's mental and physical condition, also known as the state of being free from illnesses or injuries. It is undeniably linked to the health conditions and issues a person might possibly have. It concerns the physical, as well the mental health of a person. My heart goes out to those people who have to sleep along the streets and pavements. These people can only wait in hope that people will show concern for them by donating small amounts of money to them. Yet, they are unable to do anything to improve their situation due to the lack of education. It is in a way a cause of mental illnesses some people might possess. These people usually suffer from depression. Their minds are always filled with negative thoughts which keep surfacing in their minds. This causes their mental state of health to deteriorate and them to lose hope in breaking free from poverty. Hence, they continue to accept their fate and do nothing to improve their situations. As they continue to grow hungry, they suffer from more serious diseases which harms their immune systems. I believe that we should always lend a helping hand to these people and respect them like any other human being.
Food, defined as any nutritious substance that any people or animals eat or drink, or that plants absorb, in order to maintain plant and growth, plays a significant role in our lives. Through this article, I now know that many people in this world suffer from malnutrition.This is mainly due to the fact that these people are unable to afford food for themselves. Most of the time, children live on empty stomachs. Only during some ocassions do they receive food from their teachers when they go to school. Adversely, the rich are able to afford expensive and nutritonal food for themselves. As the number of people entering the poverty state increases, the number of people who can afford food decreases. This results in people being unable to obtain food for their consumption. Hence, no matter how i perceive this situation, I still feel that poverty to a large extent, linked to food. Nonetheless, it is heartening to see people from other countries, reaching out to these people by helping them to face this situation of poverty.
1. How can i contribute to help these poor people?
2. What right do mother-in-laws have to decide the children's diet?
3. Shouldn't mothers be the ones who make this decision since they know their children the best?
