From this article, i see that the government of this country is taking action in helping villages set up solar panels so that families would have electric supply.With this electrical supply, it helps improve the lives of people, education and health facilities. I think that the aim of building these solar panels is to help facilitate in cooking or warmth so that people would not have to use traditional methods. This electrical supply helps the people living in poverty in all aspects. Firstly, it helps improve hygiene of daily food, as now electricity is supplies for them to cook. Next, it helps improve education, as computers could be set up in schools, thus helping students in computerizing. Next, it helps improve the amount of food and water supply, with more electricity, the crops could grow more efficiently and more money could be collected. With the money, they could install taps in their house for clean water supply. Lastly, it helps improve medical facilities as more electrical appliances could be plugged in this could help doctors cure patients more efficiently. However, i am wondering, what if these electrical supplies are not free? Do people living in urban states know about the conditions of people in the rural settlements? Are they willing to help them?
From the video, i see that many people in some parts of asia are still living in poverty, some are living in extreme poverty.Many are not able to afford clean water, food, education or medical facilities . However this bank, the asian development bank (ADB) is trying their best to help create job opportunities and education for everyone. Their target is to let everyone living in poverty to have a better life by year 2020.I think that the ADB is tring their best, however is it possible for this company to have enough money to support almost millions of people for food, education, water, health? I feel that the company should give support to those who are in extreme poverty first, at least they would have lesser burden and not live in extreme poverty. I wonder why the government is not doing anything to improve the lives of people whereas a bank is? Should the government be forward looking and assume what is going to happen to the country if there is a rapid population growth? Why is the bank willing to help?
From the article, i see that most countries in Asia are poor as asia take up most of the world's population and most of the countries have weak leaders to serve their country. This results in lack of clean food, water, education and medical facilities. Without these needs, the country would not get better, as only the rich gets to go to school and learn governance, where the best brains of the country maybe around the poor people.I think that countries which are poor should learn from their neighbouring countries who prosper.The government should make a plan for each aspect for example giving subsidies for education for the poor or trading of harvest for money and education for their children.Therefore, i wonder what had the government been doing to improve the country? Do their neighbouring countries help them and give advices? Would anyone among the poor step up to lead the country if they knew better?
From the article, i see that about two third of the world's population are made up of poor people. Factors which lead to poverty are wars, projects on deforestation and mining. From the picture i see women and children wearing dirty clothes and muddy hair, which tells me how long those people have not bathed.The children are also thin , therefore i know that people there have not enough food and water to drink, bathe or eat. The article also states that nearly half of Asian kids are living in poverty. Those children could not afford education, medical supplies, which also means they have no qualifications to find a decent job when they grow up. I think if those children do not have money in the future, their children would suffer and this continues on generation by generation. Also, the article states that poverty is keeping children out of school, only a handful of children in one village gets admitted in school. Thus this article makes me wonder why the government not subsidies the prices of daily needs for people living in poverty? Why is the government reluctant to take away caste discrimination? Why do the people not do anything about it?
From the article, i see that more people in Asia are getting richer, however the others who are living in poverty are much poorer too.Therefore, many philantropist done charity to help the less fortunate.With the rich people getting more clean food or water, more poor people are getting lesser clean food or water.I think that people who got richer may had got help by rich philantropist, who in turn help other poor people. They probably provided education for poor children and grow up to be rich buisnessmen. If this cycle continue, more and more people would not be living in poverty anymore.However, the people lagging behind would also have a hard time catching up in the world with all the competition of jobs. Therefore i wonder if every single one in the world could be rich and never be poor? Those philantropist who donates to charity, would they use up all their money and drop to live in poverty? Would everyone who had a change in fortune care to help those still living in poverty?
