Children are likely to die soon after birth, and if they do not, they will likely be put into child labor in order to raise a family’s income. Poverty also has devastating effects on people’s mental health. “The poor feel negative, inferior, passive, hopeless. And powerless”(“Causes and Effects of Poverty”). Because of this, victims are more likely to commit suicide.
In 1865, the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution ended the institution of slavery. After 152 years modern day slavery still exists and has evolved under a different appearance and known as “Human Trafficking” in today’s society and it still harms people all around the world .From the appearance of the labor, slavery has been an issue because it forces humans to work under bad conditions. Each year, thousands of people are trafficked across borders or internally, and exploited for cheap labor or sexual services. People are forced to work in factories, domestic work and agriculture. Children are taken away from their school life, education and used as soldiers, and forced in marriage.
As a matter of a fact poor families are known to having too many kids, and when the bread winner 's income isn 't enough to satisfy their simplest needs, children are forced to work to raise the income to secure the family 's basic needs. However overpopulation in some countries leads to unemployment that plunge many people into vicious circles of poverty. ' 'Due to limited resources and more mouths to feed, more
According to the report of Jerry E. Esplanada .The Philippines is one of 120 countries where is the worst forms of child labor that continue to exist. Perpetuating the cycle of the child labor is because of poverty and often denying of the children to attend in school the most common work in child labor or prostitution and agriculture work , domestic work and drug trafficking. US Labor Secretary Hilda Solis submitted to the US labor department the children first girls are trafficked in rural up in urban areas in domestic services .The government has identified the country s poorest municipalities and was targeting the barangays that had the highest incidence of child labor I therefore conclude that child labor in the Philippines is increasing as times go with children are illegally being exploited in different parts of the country. The job should be done by adults, especially if it is hazardous and in agricultural areas. The existing laws against child labor has been coasting red for the sole purpose of protecting the rights of the children, but statistics and study have shown that the implementation has been a problem and the appropriate authority cannot meet a high percentage of stopping if not preventing the case of
The negative impact of poverty has been documented in several studies on children's emotional, psycho-social developments and, especially, interpersonal acceptance in or rejection from the society. Furthermore, it is a fact that children living in poverty experience higher levels of depression and distress than more economically affluent children due to the lack of things which facilitate their interpersonal acceptances. Extensive research has found that children raised in low-income families are less likely to achieve success; in fact, the greater their exposure to economic hardship, the greater their risk of failure (NICHD Early Child Care Research Network, 2005). Studies have identified links between poverty and adverse outcomes for children in numerous areas, including: physical health; mental, emotional, and behavioral health; cognitive development; language development; and educational attainment and academic achievement (Duncan and Brooks-Gunn, 2000). Brooks-Gunn and Duncan mentioned that the strength and consistency of these associations is striking.
Firstly，i think the main reason cause the poverty were the government and history. If the government collapsed ，the social and economic laws I think will full also, and history, if your country or family was poor before is not that easy to change..Secondly because in our world there have to many greedy，they want to get what they want what they need，does not matter if broken people 's life and family. They are cruel，poverty also cruel.. But that 's all just my opinion, can not instead your’s .. Before I started talk about the cause，lets see some facts about poverty. As we know poverty always cause many children lost their childhood，but I don 't think you known there have 2.2 billion children in the world , 1 billion of them in poverty, 121 million children out of education worldwide and 2.2 million children die each year just because they are not immunized.
More people need to be educated on the things that they can do to make a difference in their own country. In some ways, poverty can be seen as a hereditary disease. Children who grow up in poor families usually grow up as poor adults who continue to pass down the gene of poverty by having poor kids of their own. While the millions of adults and children who suffer from poverty face real and frightening economic desolation, all Americans will benefit from cutting down the rate of
The official China Women’s News reports, “‘Employment of children cripples them mentally and physically damaging the hope and future of the nation,’” (qtd. in Tefft 1). This statement describes how the employment of children has ruined their lives due to their treatment and conditions at their work. The mental and physical damage sustained to these children also follow them for the rest of their lives, which makes them unable to be productive members in society. While China is trying to make progress to abolish child labor in the workplace, Tefft acknowledges: Under a new labor law effective Jan. 1, China has launched an initiative against the recruitment and employment of children under 16.
In some parts of Nigeria, women are denied opportunities to get formal education and their girls are forced to early marriage subjecting them to maternal responsibilities. My focus on the research will be on the children, the children are the future of a country and so more attention should be directed to them. Child poverty should be a major concern in Nigeria, many children have been displaced due to one reason or the other for instance in the northern part of Nigeria where “Boko-Haram” is so rampant and considered to be a war zone. The affected children have been taken away from their normal lives they stopped schooling, no proper feeding and socially
In the United States a majority of foster children come from the poorest families and communities. “For children ages 4 and under, counties with the highest concentrations of poverty had more than triple the rate of child-abuse fatalities compared to counties with the lowest concentrations of poverty” (Reuters 1). This statistic is startling and disheartening, children that are living in a more impoverished situation have a more likely chance to go through something so rough. If there is a way to support families in poor neighborhoods and get them out of the desolate pattern of getting stuck in poverty than that number would drop drastically. WIC, a supplemental food program for women, infants and children, is helping people of these communities but there is more that can be done, they provide supplemental food to pregnant women and children under five years (Social Safety Net 1).
