(Enhancement of Literacy in Afghanistan (ELA) program) There are many reasons to why the statistics still remain low and some of the reasons are poverty, child marriages, child labour, and limited schools/long travel distances for school. These barriers hold back girls from getting an education which as a whole affects the whole country because if both genders were hold to the same value then there would be more productive and educated members in their society. Additionally, many families and individuals in Afghanistan are suffering when it comes to hunger and malnourishment since they often don’t have enough money to buy food. Therefore, children are often fed the bare minimum in order to stay alive and often that is not even enough. As a result of this, Afghanistan has a very high infant mortality rate of approximately 257 deaths per 1000 live births.
Poverty has become an increasingly common issue and is a general worldwide problem. There is a high degree of poverty throughout Ireland. Poverty is when people are lacking their basic needs which they need to survive (Gifford, 2009). There are 698,000 people experiencing poverty in Ireland and 211,000 of whom are children (Foley, 2015). Child poverty in Ireland is a consistent problem and is one of the highest rates in Europe (O'Hagan & Newman, 2014).
Pakistan is facing many challenges from the lack of access to basic health care services, to poverty, illiteracy, women’s low status, unhygienic water supplies and sanitation and the most important problem Pakistan is facing is unemployment. Pakistan has one of the highest unemployment rate in the world. According to UN Pakistan has approximately 5.8% unemployment rate. The unemployment rate in Pakistan is increasing and due to increasing amount of unemployment many crime takes place, Pakistan has a lot of natural resources but due to poor governance we can’t use them with full potential. You can find many educated people for example doctors, engineers and graduates roaming around for job in Pakistan but couldn’t find a job worth their education.
This phenomena is having a negative effect in our society, and is responsible for many of the issues we are facing today, such as the increase in crime, poor health, unemployment, limited access to education, these factors are the main contributors that leads to the disruption of peace among the population. If we are unable to meet our basic needs like food, shelter, security, as outlined by Maslow’s hierarchy of needs it is impossible for us to be a productive member of society. Poverty is the main social problem responsible for poor health in our society. In Belize poverty is the main reason we have such high incidence of mal-nutrition among our children. With Toledo district having the highest rates followed by Orange walk and Cayo.
A bad education will set up the students in the Mississippi Delta who are faced with poverty to seek failure later on in life. This will soon create a domino effect, generation after generation. Other residents in the Mississippi Delta were sent to private institutions, because their parents did not want them to attend an integrated school. Because of the Mississippi Delta’s lack of educational opportunities, students face disadvantages that negatively affect their life. The poor quality of the education system will result in devastating consequences in the Mississippi Delta.
Since majority of the people are poor, they find it impossible to afford medical care in private hospitals. This results in high death rates especially among the poor and low income group. Increase in the number of deaths brings further hardships on families especially when the deceased was the ‘bread winner’ of the family. This sometimes results in children becoming victims of child labour and involvement in anti-social activities. The inefficiency in Nigeria’s health care system can be attributed to inadequate attention given to health care services delivery by the government.
This is where there is a large divide between rich and poor, with some South Africans living above the poverty line while others lives and incomes are worse than the general standard of living. Not only this, but certain South Africans also face absolute poverty, where they face lack of basic necessities, isolation from social activities, lack of information and hope, and fear for their children’s lives and futures due to poverty. In South Africa alone, 18 million children are affected by poverty and there is a 23.3% unemployment rate. These shocking figures emphasize the poor poverty situation South Africa faces. Sickness, no income and poor education all play large roles in poverty in South Africa.
The overall literacy rate of Pakistan is 46 per cent, which means more than half of the country is illiterate. Since achieving independence in 1947 Pakistan has been a country that has faced many drawbacks economically and politically, nonetheless the most substantial concern this country faces is their lack of education. The media portrays the government having everything under control however the situation of education in Pakistan remains dramatic. Education is the backbone of every nation, and the fate of any country lies upon the education of its people. However, in a country like Pakistan, education is not a basic right of every human being as it should be, which is the foremost reason of educational downfall in Pakistan.
The children at schools all-black schools (usually dependent on Government) they usually do not go to university, do not have a sustainable job, and an unprivileged life. In South Africa, our life chances are mainly determined by race, by birth, and by where you went to school. Most businesses would rather have employees from other companies that employ and trained talented people who lack skills and work experience but could add value in the long term. (This, in results in the fact that rate of unemployment in South Africa is HUGE, businesses struggle to fill vacancies.) We need to look at the fact the large, poorly educated, mostly black population do not have social capital to get
