Poverty, Defined | The struggle to stay alive in a threatening environment | Scoop.it

by MICHAEL CHARNEY

 

Last spring I learned about poverty in a way that neither extreme really cares about.

 

My wife and I drove from Louisville, Kentucky to Asheville, North Carolina, traveling down what William Least Heat-Moon calls “blue highways.” We told our GPS to ignore major roads and she (we call the disembodied directioneer “Becky”) took us from small town to small town through rural Kentucky and Tennessee.

Poverty reduction in Pakistan through ICT - News Tribe (blog) | The struggle to stay alive in a threatening environment | Scoop.it

“ICTs are technological tools but poverty often has social and political roots. The poverty reduction is possible simply by the use of a new technology is the exception but not the rule. Often social and political change is needed as well”. – Richard Gerster
