Causes and Consequences of Poverty today

According to the World Bank, more than one billion people today live on less than $1 per day. About 70% of those people are women, and almost half of the population of sub-Saharan Africa survives at that income level. We know that every 3.5 seconds, a child dies in the developing world from poverty-related circumstances.

While on the surface poverty is often defined as a lack of income or assets, in the day-to-day lives of the very poor, poverty becomes a network of disadvantages, each one exacerbating the others. The result is generation after generation of people who lack access to education, health care, adequate housing, proper sanitation and good nutrition. They are the most vulnerable to disasters, armed conflict and systems of political and economic oppression and they are powerless to improve their circumstances. These conditions often leads to dysfunctional family and societal relationships, with low self-esteem, and spiritual darkness. Poverty is a lack of hope.

With time, these less fortunate children will have a chance to live on after receiving the nature they desperately desire. More children will have a home to live in, they will have a right to education, develop their skills, be able to carry on in life, get jobs and have a meaningful life.
