POVERTY
Introduction: Poverty
 Poverty is the state of one who lacks material
possessions or money. Absolute poverty refers
to being unable to afford basic human needs,
which commonly includes clean and fresh
water, nutrition, healthcare, education, clothing
and shelter. About 1.7 billion people are
estimated to live in absolute poverty today.
Case Study
Case Study
 A 76-year-old man ran a little business selling
household provisions. His meagre income had
to support his middle-aged daughters who are
wheelchair bound and suffering from polio
since birth, and a wife who is senile and
incapable of looking after herself. Sadly, his
problems took a dramatic turn for the worse
when the Government upped the rental of his
shop from US$150 to US$450 a month.
Analysis
 Where: Singapore
 What is the problem: The problem is that
instead of the government offering financial
assistance and incentives to the family. The
government upped his monthly rent providing
more pressure on the sole breadwinner to
provide for his family. Furthermore, his family
members are all suffering from illnesses which
requires a lot of money besides just paying for
daily household necessities.
Personal Reflections
What can young people do to
help?
 Donate money
 Provide free tuition for children
 Volunteer to help do household chores
How do you feel about the
current situation?
 It is heartening to know that there are people from all
walks of life who are willing to help these people.
However, I feel that more can be done on a government-
scale. For example, renewing their policies on financial
assistance so that it will stay relevant in the ever-
changing society. With rising inflation costs and with
Singapore consistently having the dubious honor of
being one of the most expensive cities in the world.
Reviewing policies on financial assistance is of upmost
importance. Lastly, I feel that the government should
give more monetary assistance and reduce taxes for
charities so that they can use the excess money to help
more families in need.
Conclusion
 In conclusion, poverty is a problem on a global
scale which affects people in both developed
and developing nations. However, poverty
usually affects developing nations. Luckily,
with the right steps, countries can work
towards reducing poverty.
