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.

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.

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.

Child Poverty In America Is Absolutely EXPLODING – 16 Shocking Statistics That Will Break Your Heart

Child Poverty In America Is Absolutely EXPLODING – 16 Shocking Statistics That Will Break Your Heart | Poverty in various parts of the world | Scoop.it

"The Economic Collapse | If the U.S. economy is improving, then why is child poverty in America absolutely exploding"

 

There is a current advertising campaign by UNICEF to end child poverty by 2015.

 

They naturally highlight the plight of children and their adverts imply that the problem lies mainly in impoverished African and Asian countries.

 

However, this article shows that the problem is far more widespread and exists in countries that are traditionally considered 'affluent'.

 

Whilst there are many reports stating that the gulf between rich and poor is growly exponentially, it is not mere rhetoric and this article lends a great deal of credence to that idea.
