Transcript of Poverty and Education

Children in Poverty
Helping a child get an education could change their life!!!
Roughly 32 million children in Latin America are suffering from poverty.

62.7% of children in Latin America are
affected by some form of poverty.
Most children work on a farm with their family
or live on the streets.

Younger girls work
as prostitutes in order
to survive.

We take things we have for granted!

Rural Brazilian children can't afford education...
Most work for their families survival.
Children who work on the streets in Brazil
get involved in gangs, drug trafficking,
thefts, and prostitution.

The government is
spending more money
on the roads than
educational purposes.
Will you help a child in need?
Donate money to Children in need!
Be the difference today!
