What is poverty? <br />Poverty is described as “a state of privation and lack of necessities. Poverty denotes serious lack of the means for proper existence.” – Dictornay.com <br />There are many kinds of poverty but here are the three main ones to me: relative, moderate , and extreme . <br />Quick Fact: “18millionpeople die every year because of extreme poverty and 30,000 children die every day.” -Vallnessa, Emily and Alicia<br />
Why is it a global issue? <br />Of the Total of 6 billion people living in the world<br />3 billion of the people are living in Poverty!<br />
SOME FACTS!<br />Please read carefully<br />“Less than one per cent of what the world spent every year on weapons was needed to put every child into school by the year 2000 and yet it didn’t happen.”<br />“The amount of money the UK spends on chocolate each year , could make Africa not live in POVERTY!”<br />“At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day.“<br />“A fifth have no access to modern health services”<br />
If it doesn’t affect you and me, Why should we care? <br />Just imagine representing the 3 million of the 6 billion people in the world’s population living in poverty. <br />Take a second to put yourself in a Childs shoes.<br />
