Nathaniel Loreno Arendayen's insight:

The article states that iBoP is giving practicle ways for people to survive and try to escape poverty. The article mentions a book which has innovative ways for cultivation and water sanitation. These would be very helpful to people suffering from extreme poverty as they would need these techniques to survive. These procedures could eventually help these people to escape poverty by growing their own crops for profit.

This article shows that BoP is giving simple and effective ideas for people to survive poverty. This article mentions a book which has innovative ways for cultivation and water sanitation. These will be very auxiliary to people suffering from extreme poverty as they would need these techniques to survive. These procedures could eventually avail these people to elude poverty by growing their own crops for profit.

Poverty still a challenge in some parts of Asia - Channel NewsAsia

Poverty still a challenge in some parts of Asia - Channel NewsAsia | Poverty Assingment_Arendayen Nathaniel Loreno | Scoop.it
Poverty remains a significant challenge in some parts of Asia, according to non-government agencies such as the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

Nathaniel Loreno Arendayen's insight:

Many people are suffering from poverty,even as many charity groups are helping, the fight against poverty is still tough.As the economies in many developing countries in Asia are getting better the income gap between the rich and poor is rising as the poor earn more but the poor get poorer.What are the possible ways to help the poor other than donating? Could the income gap be made closer in order to help the poor?

Wan Ting Wong's curator insight, February 4, 2013 5:25 AM

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?

Ong Yi An's curator insight, February 4, 2013 7:29 AM

The economy of Asia is always growing, thus the gap between the poor and the rich will become bigger and bigger. There are 830 million people live in extreme poverty while there are some other people spending money like it is dirt. Although governments in Asia are roping in the private sector to help care for the less fortunate, but it is not enough to help everyone. There are also lots of people donating to charities. But where will all this money go? Will they be pocketed? This are some of the questions that people will often think about when it comes to donating. Therefore, the people who are organising the event must be honest and give all the money that they have collected to the poor people so that they can live a better live.

Wong Jia Ler's curator insight, February 4, 2013 8:40 AM

 

I see that many people are suffering from poverty although there are many charity groups and donation drives being carried out, poverty is still a singnificant problem in Asia. There is a difference between the rich and the poor now, and it is even getting bigger and bigger. Will the rich donate? Or will they just stand by and watch the poor suffer. Or will the goverment help the poor and close the gap between the rich and the poor?

Nathaniel Loreno Arendayen's insight:

The article states that the main cause of poverty in South Asia is that of excessive population growth on sarce resources. Due to the fact that there are so many people but so little resources,many of the poor have jobs and to be able to provide for their families let alone have any basic necessities to survive on.China and South Korea has helped to relief some of the poverty by controlling the population,the governments of other countries should also adopt this procedure so that there is a more equal distribution of jobs between the poor and rich.

Wealth are not distributed widely well around the world. Poverty in Asia are also caused by rising population growth and population growth can't be controlled..Food supply, safe water and good education are not sufficient in these poor countries.

UN calls for combining energy access with anti-poverty projects in Asia

UN calls for combining energy access with anti-poverty projects in Asia | Poverty Assingment_Arendayen Nathaniel Loreno | Scoop.it
Services that combine access to modern energy for heating, cooking and electricity, with measures that generate cash, supplement incomes and improve health and education would be the most effective energy solutions in Asia and the Pacific,...

Via Flora Moon
Nathaniel Loreno Arendayen's insight:

These measures are effective but only for a short time. The technology like solar panels would give small villages power but elecricty does not go in a very long way for the people affected by extreme poverty for they have nothing that needs electricity. The UN could introduce cultivation techniques and provide the starting materials for these people so that they can grow their own food and with time even for profit. Energy does not necessarily help people in poverty and the UN should call for more practical methods of reducing poverty.

Benjamin Yap Kian Hwee's comment, February 4, 2013 7:51 AM
After reading this article, I see that the people are not able to pay for electricity. The government is helping them by building solar panels to collect energy from the sun. This will benefit many people, for example the children can study even after the sunset and the adults can use electrical appliances to cook food instead of using fire. Now the people can use the computer and connect to the outside world and let people know about what is poverty.
Wong Jia Ler's curator insight, February 4, 2013 9:08 AM

This method is viable, it will help many obtain cooked food, but. is this method viable in a way in cost effectiveness if we wanted to do this in a world wide scale to help everyone? I do not think so, but, it is still good as this project had helped many, thousands, or maybe millions. lives are saved, but maybe we could look for a new method to help them which is cost effective and needed by people affected by poverty.

Praveent Thamil Mani's curator insight, January 20, 2014 7:21 AM

Support offered by government and non-government agencies to people to come out of the poverty line.

 

I see that a report by the UN Development Programme confirms that there can be no development without energy, and that poverty cannot be addressed sustainably without paying due attention to energy services.  The poor need energy to get out of poverty, but energy alone is not enough. The poor need support to generate income so that energy becomes affordable, which in turn will improve household living standards. Nearly half the world’s population lacks reliable access to modern energy services. I hope that this process speeds up and the poverty in the world is decreased.

Nathaniel Loreno Arendayen's insight:

The article states that Indian sub continent had many people living in extreme poverty.This is due to the fact that majority of the poor are part of the caste system which gives the people affected by poverty a low status.This means that the next generation cannot get out of poverty due to their low status.Is it possible to abolish this caste system even though it is part of their religion to help these people get better lives? And if possible,how so?

Mohamed Hasir Marican's curator insight, February 3, 2013 5:09 AM

In 1998, Asia accounted for about two-thirds of the world’s 1.2 billion poorest people. I was shocked when i read this article as i did not know that Asia was facing such problem. I can see a family of three children and a mother in the picture. I can see that they are experiencing poverty as they wearing very dirty clothes which are also torn. I think the children are not satisfied with what they have by they are looks. They feel that they need something more. Why the lady have three children when she know that she is facing poverty? What are they going to do to fight poverty?

Wan Ting Wong's curator insight, February 4, 2013 6:39 AM

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?

Hilal Iryandy's curator insight, January 25, 2014 4:04 AM

Asia is acounted for the worst in poverty. They have less htna a dollar a day to spend in everything. They do not have enough money to buy their stuff. The war destroy their Loved ones, livs and their belongings. It is up to us to change the world and give out our helping hand!
