What makes some countries rich and other countries poor?
We looked at the physical and political climate of each country.
After doing our research we noticed that the majority of these countries are considered to be tropical climates. But some of the natural disasters that come along with having this type of climate are droughts, earthquakes, floods, dusty winds, volcanic erruptions, etc.
Religions and

1.8 million children aged 5-17 years work in cocoa farms. 40% of them go to school. 5% get paid. they handle chemicals and prolonged exposure they are prone to incorrigible respiratory and dermatological diseases

Task #5
This photo is of a sick child, getting healthcare in Nigeria.
These two photos are of the people in Nigeria and Cameroon struggling to get fresh water.
Ivory coast: Difficult access to safe drinking water
;little health centers
Indonesia: 70% of drinking water are contaminated;
Must register health insurance for medical care/treatment
Ghana: 3.5 million people have to get dirty from unsafe sources; many deaths from deadly mosquitoes and not enough doctors
Nigeria: 6.3 million people have no access to safe water; 97000 children die each year from poor sanitation and diarrhea
You might think everyone in the world can live up to approximately 75 years old, but did you know it all depends on the way we live our life? Countries such as Cameroon don't have clean water sources, and also lack in medical professionals. They can live up to around 51.58 years. That is a young age to pass away. 70.68% of people can read there, and their HDI GDP seems at a good $16,983 but compared to Brazil or the Dominican Republic- they are just barely passing by. Brazil has the highest GDP on the list at $1,751,744 and people live for around 73.44 years. Brazil still has it's perks though, as doctors are low in small cities and there isn't fair amounts of fresh water going around, but you'll learn about that later.

This is a small border line village in Cameroon that doesn't have fresh water sources so villagers must wash their clothes and get their drinking water from the same place. Would you trade your life for
their life?
