Central America

Transcript: Overall, Central America has a fairly decent life expectancy. The lowest age is 65 while the highest is over 75. It has a pretty good literacy rate where, on average, it is about 76.7%. So overall the problems in Central America aren't very serious; the life expectancy is good, 3/4 of the population are literate, but the GPA per capita is fairly low 1 -They should build more job oppitunities for people in the region. This could lower debt in the countries, increase the GPA and help the people living there have more choices for new jobs and to get a better paying job. 2 - They should have more schools for kids to learn and become prepared for job oppitunities. This could help the kids in the future to get a job and be prepared doing it. 3 -They should also get a better living standard. Living standard will increase the life expectancy in Central America. Safer homes could help keep the citizensliving there healthier. Editing By:Reed YEAH! Central America Technical Let's Get sort of Having a better living standard would be the first step in improving the life quality of central America. Building safer homes is crutail for a country . When central America experienced the flood in November 2011 ,Canada through the Canadian international development agency offered 2 million dollars to help build and repair homes in central America. If central America had better living conditions It could lead to a lot more citizens being able to go to school . which leads to the next point. Kids need to get a good education when they are young to go further in the future. Canada has many organizations for volunteers to build schools in central America for these kids . So by having better living standards to lead to schools, kids get the education they need and more job opportunities will be opened . If more job opportunities are opened then there will be more variety of careers people can chose from to make a living. Brenden Olivia Reed Christina
