Transcript of Poverty

Poverty Now that you've learned some information, answer this question: How far are you willing to go to stop poverty? This far? How about this far? Solutions to Poverty Clean Water Access to clean water isn't the problem in America that it is in developing nations, where sewage and water often mix. Still, many who can’t afford to pay for utilities may seek unsafe water sources, or maybe worse, subsist on soda. Nutrition Nearly 15 percent of American households had low or very low food security in 2008, according to the USDA. In 2010, even more families are food insecure. How to help? Visit Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity and learn more about how and where you can help. Health Care There is a variety of things you could do to make a difference in poverty.
Here is a list of things you could do:
Volunteer at a soup kitchen
Volunteer at a homeless shelter
Donate canned food
Donate clothes and things kids would enjoy
Volunteer at a Habitat For Humanity work site
Donate sanitary items
Raise awareness by speaking up
Write or call the political representatives and explain your concern(s).
Fun Raiser More Americans lost health insurance between 2008 and 2009 than during any other year in the country’s history. In America, health care is not a right.There’s nothing funny about it, unless you want to get into the dental tactics employed by un-certified backwoods orthodontists. Education Shelter Last year, 1.5 million Americans experienced homelessness, according to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. That’s 1.5 million too many. A way we could help is by donating money to homeless shelters, so they could possibly house more homeless people. Or donate money to build houses for the homeless. How about this far? Let's take a look at some information on poverty: LifeStyle This picture is showing poverty and the conditions homeless families have to live in. The picture comes from Colombia. What is Poverty? Survey Data Poverty is living without the basic needs that many others enjoy. People who live in poverty worry about things like having enough food to feed thier families and having a safe sercure shelter in which to live.

One large cause that people don't know about is unequality, which many have said is the second-largest cause of poverty. People who are treated bad, or "different", or even women in different countries that have too little rights are examples of this. Try to think of a way to reverse this. http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/10-solutions-to-end-poverty/
