Almost half of the world, Over three billion people live on less than 2.50 dollars a day in an average. Around 2.2 million children die each year because they are not immunized due to hunger. Hunger is one of the main effect of poverty and the cause of it, is death. In my opinion one of the reason for poverty is corruption which is widespread in almost all countries, only developed countries where level of corruption is low is able to successfully cope with poverty. Extreme global poverty is a problem that affects a large percentage of the world’s population and will continue to spread until no strict action is taken by their respected countries.
The first problem is Haitian faces the freedom from want problem. Most of population have to encounter with extremely poor income, According to the CIA world factbook, 80 percent of the population lives below poverty line. There are many causes that lead Haiti to be below world’s average poverty line, such as poor education system causing most of younger generation to be unemployed and underemployment compare to other country. Children are often not in school or suffer from illness due to unhygienic living conditions. In addition most of the population still lack of shelter, access to clean water and food.
Even in September two years ago, the National Center for Homeless Education reported that local school districts reported there are over one million homeless children in public schools. Aren’t these true facts sad enough to make us concern about the priority of shelter? As shelter is among the factors that could unite the diversity and hearten positive changes year by year. This is 100% legitimized by Ralph Chaplin when he said ‘it seems the most logical thing in the world to believe that the natural resources of the Earth, upon which the race depends for food, clothing and shelter, should be owned collectively by the race instead of being the private property of a few social
As indicated by the World Summit for Social Development, Absolute Poverty is described as a state where people experience extreme situation of not having the human essentials or basic needs like proper hygiene, food, schooling and information, water that is safe to drink, and shelter or a house to live in. In spite of the fact that The Economist published that in 1990, 43% or 1.9 billion individuals in advancing and developing nations lived in serious neediness and that it had been decreased to 21% or 1.2 billion by 2012, Statistics show that more than 3 billion or a large portion of the world live under undesirable circumstance of poverty. While Absolute Poverty is defined like
(poverties.org, 2011) In my opinion, I think poverty can not be eradicated because there are forty percent of people who are at poverty level, which means 2.8 billion people. In addition, it is difficult to eradicate poverty since we have so many corrupt officials when the governments give the funds to the poor people, those officials will take the money from the funds to do dishonest or illegal things with it. Poverty can not be eradicated unless people educate their children offering them a better life. For example, if a poor family does not send their children to school therefore their children will not get education and a well paid job in the future. With the job that they can get without any education will enable them to get jobs that will only offer them basic living.
At least one billion people have absolutely no access to sanitized water or a safe place to stay(Brathwaite&Mont,2009). Additionally, they are facing starvation (Charles, 1992). Poverty is basically we did not have enough water, food, place to live or medicine to cure us when we were sick. Poverty was, still is and will be one of the major problems in the world. The World Bank estimated that in 1998, more than one billion people lived on less that one dollar per day (Brathwaite&Mont,2009).
Malnutrition in the Central African Republic is one of the main and top concerns for the country. Nearly one third of the population is food insecure with 47.7 percent of children suffer from malnutrition. In 2008 nearly 66.26 percent of the population was living at less than $1.90 a day. But people are not just sitting around and not doing anything. The world food program has begun its first food vouchers program to assist more than 100,000 people affected by conflict.
Poverty in the simplest definition is the lack of household income or the state of one who lacks a certain amount of material possessions or money. Nowadays the poverty reduction became a major issue for the world many international organizations such as the United Nations and the World Bank. The World Bank estimated 1.29 billion people were living in absolute poverty in 2008. According to the World Bank definition, absolute poverty is a condition characterized by severe deprivation of basic human needs, including food, safe drinking water, sanitation facilities, education and others. In our days there is the issue which is regarded to an international priority that says hunger and food insecurity are the most serious forms of absolute poverty ,therefore more wealthier countries or even people take part in creation of a list of goals and strategies for poverty eradication in big organizations such as UNESCO, UN Millennium Development Goals Project.
Poverty is more than the lack of income and resources to ensure a sustainable livelihood. The manifestations of poverty include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and skill training and other basic social services, social discrimination and exclusion as well as the lack of participation in decision-making (UMC, Book of Discipline 2012). The “United Nations” report on “Sustainable Development” states that over seven million people still live in extreme poverty of which majority of this population live on less than 1.9 dollars daily in Southern Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. About 70% of the global total of extremely poor people account for this million population (UNDP 2016). The report further states that extreme poverty is
2.1.2 Allocation : About one third population of our country is extremely poor and according to the UN Millennium Development Goal Report 2014, India also has the highest number of under-five year age group deaths in the world in 2012, with 1.4 million children dying before reaching their fifth birthday . On one hand, we are pleased that our country has bumper food grain stock but on another hand, it is a bitter truth that most people have to sleep at night with an empty stomach. It so happens because of a wrong policy of allocation of food grain. Allocation of food must be in the view of the required necessities. Only then every person will get the right ‘fruits’ of food security.
