“The world ‘s hunger is getting ridiculous. There is more fruit in a rich man’s.Shampoo than in a poor man’s plate”
Poverty; is a reduction which has been unanimously endorsed by the international community as the over aching goal of development.
Poverty can be defined in very precise technical terms that facilitate it’s measurement. It can also be characterized in a more multidimensional – yet less precise manner that helps seeing poverty in relation to it’s cause, it’s context, it’s consequences and the way it is related to phenomena that can be influenced.
The level under which the poverty is unacceptable ( absolute poverty, extreme or serious poverty)
The ILO introduced the ” Basic Needs ” concept in 1970’s and 1980’s. This concept is to bring available in the community of public goods and services to define and assess the poverty.
“People move out of poverty when they fall into poverty” this is to understand poverty as a static affair and the poor as a stable and identifiable group of people which is offense misleading.
Transmission of poverty is commonwealth and have a high tendency to transcend generation. In most of the country context, to be born in a poor family predestines a child to a lifetime of poverty.
This shows that the poverty is an end result of brooder development which is possible through transformative economic and social policies.
To eradicate the poverty, One should put oneself in the shoes of poverty to feel and understand the sympathy which ignites the empathy in a person heart which can bring changes in the society. Let poverty not be told just in words but let it be done in reality
