Poverty Submitted to : Sukhjit Kaur Submitted by : Manjit Kaur

Introduction:

Introduction Poverty is the lack of basic necessities that all human beings must have: food and water, shelter, education, medical care, security, etc. A multi-dimensional issue, poverty exceeds all social, economic, and political boundaries. As such, efforts to alleviate poverty must be informed of a variety of different factors.

Causes of third world poverty :

Causes of third world poverty Trade Third world countries lose out through unfair trade agreements, lack of technology and investment, and rapidly changing prices for their goods.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Debt Third world countries have to pay interest on their debts. This means they cannot afford to spend enough on basic services like health and education; nor on things like transport or communications that might attract investment. Land If you have land you can grow your own food. But many people in the Third World have had their land taken over by large businesses, often to grow crops for export.

Health Affordable or free health care is necessary for development. In poor countries the percentage of children who die under the age of five is much higher than in rich countries. HIV/AIDS is having a devastating effect on the Third World. :

Health Affordable or free health care is necessary for development. In poor countries the percentage of children who die under the age of five is much higher than in rich countries. HIV/AIDS is having a devastating effect on the Third World. HIV is now the single greatest threat to future economic development in Africa. AIDS kills adults in the prime of their working and parenting lives, decimates the work force, fractures and impoverishes families, orphans millions... · Callisto Madavo, vice-president of the World Bank, Africa region 1999

PowerPoint Presentation:

· Food and education Affordable, secure food supplies are vital. Malnutrition causes severe health problems, and can also affect education. Without education it is difficult to escape from poverty. This becomes a vicious circle – people who live in poverty cannot afford to send their children to school. Gender When we measure poverty we find differences between the level experienced by men or boys, and women or girls. Women may be disadvantaged through lack of access to education; in some countries they are not allowed to own or inherit land; they are less well paid than men.

PowerPoint Presentation:

· Environment A child born in an industrialised country will add more to pollution over his or her lifetime than 30-50 children born in the Third World. However, the third world child is likely to experience the consequences of pollution in a much more devastating way. For example, annual carbon dioxide emissions have quadrupled in the last 50 years. This contributes to global warming, leading to devastating changes in weather patterns. Bangladesh could lose up to 17% of its land area as water levels rise.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Poverty Targets 2015 poverty targets Members of the Organisation for Co-operation and Development (OECD) agreed these after the 1995 Copenhagen summit. They aim to reduce poverty in third world countries by at least one half by 2015. 20/20 initiative At the same summit some governments agreed that 20% of aid and 20% of the budget of the developing country receiving that aid would be spent on basic services. ·

Story of a Poor Child Hello! My name is Irene Kagunda. I am ten years old. I live in a town called Soweto, in Kenya. Kenya is in Africa. My Town Come and visit my town. Our houses in Soweto are small and very close together. Most have no water or electricity. Many people use paraffin (a kind of oil) to make lamps so that they can see in the evenings.

PowerPoint Presentation:

My Family There are three children. I am the youngest. My mum is called Joyce. She runs a kiosk (a small shop) that sells paraffin and other household goods. CAFOD’s partners in Soweto gave mum a loan to help her to sell more things in her shop. Now she can afford to buy better food and clothes for me. She can afford to buy me school books too.

Poverty!  what is that?   Poverty doesn't know your age, or the colour of your skin, he doesn't even care about the poor state that you're in.   He doesn't want to know, if you're hungry, or you're cold, he just keeps calm and quiet, while head bent you hold.   Many who have met him? are still with him today, not through their own choices, but by him not giving way.   Desperately needing clothes or shoes, so into purse you peer, you'll have to wait another week, or visit charities you fear.   He knows you've little money, and this he never defends, he knows you'll have to borrow, from loan sharks, or from friends   He doesn't even blink an eye, when you're worse off than before, he swears, that it's your own fault, you must have known the score. :
