It can be seen that health and education is very special. For this case, I'm highlighting the importance of health. Due to lack of water and food, their health is weakened. This will reduced their chances of finding a job and having a job with a pay to support their families.

Wong Jia Yi, Ferene's insight:

It can be seen that there is a water shortage in certain areas on the Earth. I think it is due to the fact of water wastage by the richer countries and it would be better for the worl if we could be more conservative about it. I wonder if one day if really water will be used as a trading tool.

This article shows that many countries are facing poverty due to the shortage of water. As water are used for agricultural, husehold and other purposes thus there is shortage of water and this cause alot of profit lose especially the farmers as water is also part of their 'tool" for agricultural. I wonder if it is possible for the government to increase water untility bill and so prople will use the water more wisely. And most importantly, government should find other ways to stop the shortage of water. 

Tan Ying Shan's comment, January 31, 2013 2:07 AM
it is obvious that water shortage is a controversial issue in some of the countries and in future we might even use the river,lakes and even the sea water as it could be our only source of water by then and because of the shortage of water, the people living in some countries are getting into poverty by the days. i think that we should start conserving water even though we have enough now. We have to plan for the future as water is going to run out someday. I was wondering if in the near future, if the world doesn't have anymore water, what would the people reaction be if they don't start conserving water now.
Quek Ee Pin's curator insight, January 31, 2013 8:26 PM

I can see that from this article, it is clear that countries world-wide are starting to promote activites to conserve water. Also, many companies that require water to do their businesses are using the money to help ensure that the communites are protecting and conserving water. I think that such activities might have a big impact in the future, when there is a shortage of water, causing such companies and the countries to benefit from it, causing poverty to hit the public as they have to pay for the water. I wonder how communities are able to benefit from these activites other than receiving the benefit of money they recieve from the government and companies.

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty Through Education and Job Training

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty Through Education and Job Training | Poverty_WongJiaYi | Scoop.it
For too long, the national dialogue about college education has been focused on access and affordability.

Wong Jia Yi, Ferene's insight:

I can see that the important of studies is getting more and more vital for a good job in the future. However, there is not enough schools for the poorer families who cannot send their children to study in school. This will make them illiterate and they will struggle in their future. Also, they will not be able to benefit back to their country by working as fellow citizens of their countries.

Education is the brightest hope for breaking the cycle of multi-generational poverty. But, kids born to poor, under-educated parents aren't likely to succeed at school without help that targets their family situations, and that help is most needed during their earliest years. Newborn was born poor, and nearly half of those babies went on to spend at least half of their childhood in poverty. Poor children were born into "deep poverty" to parents living on incomes less. Parents' low educational attainment was shown to predict persistent poverty for their children more consistently than any other factor the study investigated including single motherhood, family unemployment, young age of parents or living in inner-city neighborhoods. Earning a high school diploma can help break the cycle of multi-generational poverty, but persistent poverty makes earning that diploma a tough challenge. Children who spend more than half of their childhoods poor are more likely than never-poor children to enter their 20s without completing high school. Poverty strikes its most innocent victims hardest of all. Stresses associated with poverty including malnutrition, lack of mental stimulation, poor health care, frequent moving and general insecurity have their direst effect on newborns and children up to age two. Children who live in poverty in those first years of life are likely to complete high school than children who became poor later in childhood. I think what this report is saying is that early interventions are very important and targeting resources to these kids from birth is vital, because home environment in early years is so important to brain development. So when parents are stable, kids are stable.

Education is important as we live in an era where you can only gain confidence in people and get a job when you have complete education. Many children who are poor, do not get a chance to go to school and learn. When given the chance, I am sure that most of them would wish to go to school and study. Many of these children work to earn money instead of studying as they cannot afford to pay for it. However, I believe that every child deserves a chance to be educated in a school, regardless of how rich or poor they are. Even though education is not something that can be totally free of charge, why not allow all children to go to school and learn the basics of the subjects, so that they would at least have enough knowledge to get a proper job.

Brandon Lee's curator insight, February 4, 2013 11:31 AM

As highlighted in the article, we could achieve our goals by breaking the cycle of poverty by having a good and fundamental education through a college degree. Students from low income group with a college degree could contribute to society and become role models.The article mentioned that from an award winning program(SRA), graduants could easily seek employment embarking on  a career opportunity into the workforce.

In my opinion, a healthy society needs to nurture a good education program which in turn have good return through rewarding investment in education.

Rewarding careers and new emerging generation to tackle workforce issues, often kept me wondering how one day I would blend myselff into this.

For example, in projects and initiatives like PAEPARD, CAADP-CGIAR Alliance and IRD/CIRAD collaborative platforms among others, it is not only scientists who are involved in research, but also other stakeholders along the agriculture value chain: farmers, researchers, extension officers, the private sector, academia, processors, exporters, input suppliers and others.

There is insufficient food in the industries. I think it would be better if everyone can conserve the food or help donate food to the poorer countries.

I see that partnership is an important key to improve the livelihoods of the farmers in increasing food productions to feed the growing population of everyone on Earth, as collaborations of companies are needed to do the plannings, research and executions of this project. I think it would be better if companies from different countries come to work together to have knowledge of the conditions of food productions from all around the world which can be useful in their project. I wonder if companies involve in this project can send messages around to promote saving and conserving food by advertisements as it could be a benefit to the project.

After reading this article, im really glad the people helping the farmers and i've learnt that patnership is important. If we want to increase the livelihood of farmers and increase food production.The project important as we can decrease the amount of people who dont have a proper meal by increasing the amount of food produced. But will the people spend their time and money on this issue ?
