In Haiti at least 50 percent of the population don’t go to school! People in Haiti also only make about 1,800 a year. (Brown and Smith). In The Giver by Lois Lowry The society is a welcoming society. They each have jobs and make money and enough money to feed their families and live in homes. The society In The Giver the community is safe they don’t have any homes that are wrecked the society is safe and sound. In The Giver society they have food they eat fruits and vegetables they stay healthy. This is why The Giver is more desirable than Haiti In crisis. In Haiti More than 50 percent of the population is in poverty And 21 percent Percent of the kids have to work. This is Why Haiti is not a good place to live.
The Giver’s society has good
This book shows the saddening truth of why the poor typically stay poor and the many, many obstacles that must be overcome just to “get ahead”. As mentioned above, the families in this book were largely affected by social, economic, and cultural barriers. Barriers of all three structural blocks, can include, but are not limited to, low wages, safe housing, education, job training, language barriers, and religious beliefs. Early in the book, Shipler writes about corrupt public administration, such as banks, check cashing facilities, and tax preparers. These are a few examples of structural economic barriers that families encountered.
What I find interesting is that the people in the book The Jungle by Upton Sinclair who try to comfort other people who are suffering, like the settlement worker who gets Jurgis a job at a steel plant on the outskirts of town after hearing Teta Elzbieta’s horrible family life and then and there is also that doctor working on birth defects, who might have been able to help little Kristoforas Teta Elzbieta three year old son who dies from a sudden illness that he catches from the drafts of their poor little house if they only known that the doctor was looking for patients. But in the Chicago slums there are many more people in need and looking for help than there are people contributing to it. Like Madame Haupt mid wife who Jurgis has to
In these two different worlds many similarities are found such as their unique ability to disclose the natural human emotions. Both “The Giver” and the film “Pleasantville” have many aspects and morels the main being the power of knowledge distributed to the characters and how they choose to use their certain position and to their own or others advantages. How one’s individuality and creativity is explored throughout their life. As well as what it means to be a human fitting in with their community or
Imagine living in a world where everything you do is watched. The Giver and The Truman Show are similar in many ways but other things aren’t quite the same. You could compare both of them and see different things, but when you looks at it more closely, you will see that they have a lot of similarities. The Giver and The Truman Show both have fears that are shown. In the Giver, a little boy fell into the river and died.
While the book covers on several thematic concerns, the issue of social inequality takes a major portion of the author’s attention. Particularly, Mountains Beyond Mountains highlights the economic inequality and disparate provision of healthcare services in Haiti, its impacts on the affected people and the possible solutions to this social inequality. To begin with,
This possibly contributes to why individuals in that community cannot escape debt and find it hard to provide for. In a way to combat poverty, she states all people need to do is give back a little and provide for those in need whether it is volunteering or donating clothes and necessities. She further claims that it is important for the whole community to play a part in improving the situation. Anderson stresses the significance of how a once known hopeless area with poverty can turn into a community providing for each other, as long as they give back and help contribute. Another source that discusses the effects of poverty is “Poverty in Granbury ISD” in which the speaker Trisha Suit analyzes poverty levels in Granbury ISD and shares the statistics of many students who are living in poverty.
Even though Haiti’s a poor country, his people have a big heart. Parents don’t want their child to work, they make them focus on school only, and their education. On the other hand, Americans just consider a child to be lazy if at their teenage age they still don’t work. They raise their children to be independent different from Haitian that make their children to depend on them. Another fact is that Americans are not really friendly; they avoid contact with people, and they have a hypocrite smile on their face, however, Haitians are really friendly, sincere, and courteous.
The word voodoo has such a stigma around, this is due to the fact that people are mainly informed of the “tourist” appeal of voodoo. People and when I say people, me included before this, thought it was about witches, magic, and dolls. I believed it was about dark magic and the practice of it, not even knowing it was a followed religion or even a way of life. To understand this somewhat mysterious and “taboo” subject we wanted to first understand specifically how does a person who follows voodoo participate in their faith; and secondly how does voodooism address health/ sickness and curing? We wanted to find out what was below the surface of the word Voodoo.
Cultural Diversities between Haiti and Nicaragua Although Nicaragua and Haiti are both in Central America they are over 950 miles apart. They both have both some of the same adversities and challenges. Haiti is considered the poorest country in Central America and Nicaragua being second. Even with both countries being poor the family structures are still considered to be strong.
Also the Haitian people seem to always think that it is their turn to have something bad happen to them. Are they wrong? I don’t think so. With their past and the kind of disasters that have happened and will happen to them, it is hard to blame them. It’s what they do that makes them incredible.

In the country of Haiti there are two groups of people the haves and the have not's. The need of the élite and the need of the masses are two completely different needs. In order for the elites who are running the country to meet their need, they allow the international country, mainly the US to exploit Haiti, in order for them to fulfil their own interest. The dependency theory has manifested itself in Haiti in four different ways, "foreign ownership of the Key resource, the mode of operation of multinational corporations, the parlous state of domestic agriculture, the austere lending policies of The IMF World Bank group" (pg. 51 Dependency and socialism in the modern Caribbean). These four different components put together are the main contributors to haiti's dependence to the international
