Raychel's insight:

In my opnion , i'm gald someone actually realised that a chance at education can actually be the start to ending poverty situations in many parts of the world . Without this chance at education, the poor would continue to not be uneducated and therefore be unable to find jobs and thus continue to suffer

I'm glad someone actually realised that a chance at education can actually be the start to ending poverty situations in many areas. Without the chance at education, the poor would continue to not be educated and therefore be unable to find jobs and thus continue to suffer.

Children in certain parts india could'nt have a proper place to study due to some problems but they did not give up hope on pursuing education despite the odds

Raychel's insight:

In My own Opinion, I think that it is very important for the young to learn more about the people living in the third world countries. Therefore they will not take things for granted in the near future. This will also  help the young to understand that things these days do not come by so easily for them. Those who have learnt about the current situation of the poor in these third world countries can help spread awareness and tell the others more bout what they have learnt.

This will help the young to understand that things these days do not come buy so easily for then. Moreover, these children who have learnt about the current situation of the poor in the third world countries can help spread awareness and tell the others more bout what they have learnt.

Yes, I agree to that the young should learn more about what is happening in the world. DEspite their poverty, when one has the dream to learn, he will work for it. Poverty shouldn't and doesn't stop you from anything!
