Navas Ibraahim's insight:

To me the word 'poverty means the state or condition of having no money or means of any support and having limited access to education.  African women do not even know some of the basic education because they are adapted just to become a housewife.

I also think that education is one of the golden paths to be taken to get out of poverty. 

After reading this article, I think I should change my idea that education is a choice . I think that every single  female should be given equal rights as males to be educated as they are capable of making

This is my insight using (See-Think-Wonder/ 4Cs/ Step inside/ Reporter's  notebook) thinking routine.

Poverty means scarcity in material possession such as food and limited access to education.  African women are deprived of a basic education due to common believe that a woman’s main duty is to be a housewife.

Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom and a stepping stone to a better life. 

After reading this article, I need to change my idea that education is a given.  Every women should be given every equal opportunity as men to be educated as they have the capabilities to contribute to the society.

After reading this article I have learnt more about gender inequality and poverty in Africa. I have always know about these issues in Africa. Education is the key to your future and success. I think that it is really unfair to think that women are supposed to stay at home and take care of children so they do not need to have education. I think everyone should be given education as everyone can contribute to the society. There are even women who does better in both studies and work than men. After reading this, I have learnt that education is a gift from heaven and whoever has that gift have to cherish it. No matter what gender are you, everyone has to be treated equally. I wonder has anyone stood up for these issues and tried to correct it.

Rural poverty: when the food bank is only 20 miles away... | Poverty | Scoop.it
Low-income families skip meals because they can't afford to get to the nearest shop to buy groceries, and walk for hours to get a charity food parcel, according to a report into rural food poverty

Navas Ibraahim's insight:

I used to think that the definition of poverty was not having money at all to spend for his/her needs, but after reading this article, I got to know that though people got some money, theey skip meals just because they cant afford to buy them or other reasons. This made me think that poverty is not being derived from the poor person but also the countries's economy.The United Nations or some other organisation should find a solution regarding this issue. After reading this article, I realised that I should change my idea of poverty. This also taught me that I am very fotunate to live in Singapoe whereby the economy is stable and most importantly I should never waste a single grain of food at any cost as I am fortunate to afford my food,not like other countries whose economy is unstable.

my insight

After reading this article i am shock to know how other people in other country are suffering.At rural countries  low-income families they skip meals because they cant afford to get to the nearest shop to get groceries, walk for hours just to get charity food parcels. and also since the rising of demand of food aid like everywhere else. this rural fastness presents speacial challengers. All this leads to unhealthy eating . like me explain families in poverty nutritionally-poor food such as takeaways and frozen food because healthier options were to expensive it found. Individuals skipping meals because they can't afford food, or buy enough food to feed the whole family was also identified as a serious problem. This poverty should stop donate food cans to family around the will it might save alot of lives without us knowing and after knowing that there are people suffering like this i think twice of wasting my food 

Lim Theng Shryl's curator insight, January 27, 8:45 PM

I felt very sad for the people living in poverty after reading this article. They had to skip meals because they cannot afford to get to the nearest shop to get their groceries. The people live in hunger, and have poor living conditions because the food they have are mostly unhealthy or they have no food at all. I think the government should do something useful for these poor people living in such conditions.

Jasmine GreenTea's curator insight, February 24, 8:02 AM

After reading the article, i know that demand for food aid is rising, like everywhere else. Families in poverty are consuming nutritionally-poor food such as takeaways and frozen food because healthier options are to expensive to be found. Individuals are skipping meals because, either, they cannot afford food, or buy enough food to feed the whole family. The Salvation army, had been providing hot meals for the homeless for over 100 years but in the last year they had seen a huge increase in the number of people who have a home but have no money for food coming to them for help.

I wonder if people in rural areas also feel the stigma of asking for help more, since there are not many people found in rural areas.
