The poverty challenge

  1. 1. Jordi Juárez<br />Arnau Martínez<br />COMENIUS PROJECTPREPARING FOR 21st CENTURY: ChallengesFacing a ChangingSociety<br />
  2. 2. DEFINITION<br />Poverty is a concept which refers to people who don’t have the necessary things for living.<br />A poor person is someone who doesn’t receive enough money to live (fewer than 60% of the average income) <br />Living in a place where there is a lot of vandalism and criminality determines poverty. <br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. POVERTY IN THIRD WORLD countries<br />Third world countries are those which are undeveloped.<br />Their GDP is very low because their economy is based on agriculture. <br />They have a high index of illiteracy.<br />Economical and political deficiency.<br />
  5. 5. There are a lot of causes, but the most important ones are: A low capital Unemployment <br />Red: SecondWorld<br />Blue: FirstWorld<br />Green: ThirdWorld<br />
  6. 6. POVERTY IN FIRST WORLD countries<br />The causes are: <br />Country's economic situation <br />Demographic explosions caused by the health improvement<br />The country's political<br /> situation<br />
  7. 7. RISK GROUPS <br />Risk groups are groups of people who haven’t got enough money to survive or to cover their basic needs (food, a house, etc.)<br />
  8. 8. IN SPAIN…<br />17% of peoplecan’thaveaccess to basic services. <br /> 8 millionpeoplearepoor.<br />4 out of 10 areunder 25 yearsold.<br />The most important reasonis theincrease of unemployment. Young peopleusuallylive at home withtheir parents or in poorconditionsbecausetheycan’tfind a job. <br />

  10. 10. NGOs<br />‘’Ayuda en acción’’ (Help in action) <br />It’s a Spanish organization. They fight against poverty. Since 1981 they work to improve the life conditions in the third world countries and they usually do some campaigns (to raise public awareness)<br />‘’Educación sin fronteras ‘’ (Education without borders)<br />It’s from Barcelona. They fight for education. They think children have to have a good education. Nowadays they work in South America (Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador...) <br />‘’ Payasos sin fronteras’’ (Clowns without borders)<br />It’s a Spanish international organization. It was founded in 1993 in Barcelona. They go to countries where there are conflicts and their labour is to make people laugh. It usually helps to forget problems... <br />We also find other international NGOs, for example Spanish Red Cross, Pangea, Doctors without Borders... but they aren’t from Spain. <br />
