How Child Poverty occurs
What is poverty?
Poverty is the state in which there is a lack of sufficient money or goods to meet basic human needs such as food, shelter, and clothing
Child poverty most likely occurs when a child lives in a family where the income is low (minimum wage) or if there are too many children in a family so the parents can't support them anymore
Child poverty also occurs when the child has no food, no clean water, no clothing, no shelter and more.
What actions are being taken by the government to stop child poverty
WHY I AM LUCKY TO BE A CANADIAN?
I am lucky to be a canadian for several reason
but today I am going to be talking about three.
The first reason is poverty, poverty is the least
thing I want because poverty leads to homelessness
sickness, and death. If I lived in poverty I wouldn't
have access to clean water, hospitals, schools, good
health care, libraries and more. Today I am here living
without poverty and having an interview just because
I am a Canadian.
The second reason is rights, I am lucky to be
a Canadian because I have rights. In some countries
people don't have the rights to learned like I do they
have to work so they can support themselves.
The third reason is full education, I have full education
because I am a Canadian. Canadian students have
full access to education because that is a right
and we need education so we can succeed in life.
We chose poverty as our theme because we think it links with water because most people who live in poverty don't have water and inequality because people in poverty are not equal to us.
- More than one in seven Canadian children live in poverty
- Canada’s child poverty rate increased between the 1990s and the late 2000s.
- Canada scores a "C" grade and ranked 15th out of 17 peer countries
- 3.2 million people are now living with low income, including 634,000 children
- Nine percent of Canadians live in poverty, but the percentage is mostly higher for single mothers and aboriginals
- In 2013 statistics, Canada reported that 8.8 percent of Canadians had low incomes in 2011
- Poverty rates among aboriginal Canadians are significantly higher compared to the rest of Canada
CLASS OF 2013-2014
NOW LETS SHOW OFF OUR MUSIC SKILLS
The government is taking actions like in 1989 the federal government voted unanimously on a motion to end child poverty by the year 2000 but nothing happened. One way is that the government can increase the Canada child tax benefits.
HOW CAN WE ELIMINATE CHILD POVERTY IN DEVELOPING COUNTRY? (INDIA) (The gap - Canada v.s India)
is much lower in India than Canada. Education is essential in creating change in a child's life. India can train teachers, build new schools, and break down barriers that prevent many children, and girls particular, from attending school.
Infant mortality rate
is high in India. Access to health care is essential.
Build health clinics, train health care workers and invest in equipment and medicine so children can grow up healthy and strong in communities that are experiencing in child poverty.
India can lower the death rate with these key steps.
Access to clean water
Water and sanitation are essential for every child's survival. We can help schools in areas like India to build school latrines so children don't have to go outside and affect the environment.
Should the government be responsible for eliminating child poverty in Canada?
The government should be responsible for eliminating child poverty in Canada because...
EFFECTS OF CHILD POVERTY?
DEATH RATE INCREASE
LOW INCOME PER CAPITA
HIGH INFANT MORTALITY RATE
WHAT SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT DO TO ELIMINATE CHILD POVERTY?
INCREASE CHILD TAX BENEFITS
INCREASE MINIMUM WAGE
PERMANENT SHELTER FOR STREET KIDS
FINANCIAL AID FOR CHILDREN IN POVERTY
Together as a group, we decided that the government should be responsible for eliminating child poverty because if you go back to how child poverty is caused, some of the ways are caused by the government. Such as how immigrants come to Canada to make a new life but cant get good jobs and so they find them self in poverty (low wages). The government is also not doing as much as it can to eliminate child poverty because we think that they spend money on bigger issues such as their military force. Canada is not even in war at the moment, the government should eliminate child poverty first because it is the bigger issue.
"POVERTY... THE ONE LINE WE WANT OUR KIDS TO CROSS"
Candice Hoeppner, MP, Chair,FEDERAL POVERTY REDUCTION PLAN:
WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TOWARDS
REDUCING POVERTY IN CANADA
40th PARLIAMENT, 3rd SESSION
I have learned that everywhere in the world, poverty exists even in the richest countries. I don’t know what someone has been through and I have to understand them before I can come to a conclusion because the person might have gone through poverty and I didn't know and I just judged him before I got to understand the person. The saying “don’t judge a book by its cover goes for this because we shouldn't judge people by the way they look. We have learned that we should empathize other people because they did not get the same privileges as us due to poverty which affected them and their lives. They can’t empathize us because they don’t share the same feelings as us but we can understand them because we have learned about poverty.
HOW HAS WHAT I LEARNED TAUGHT ME TO EMPATHIZE OTHER PEOPLE?
What did I learn about the challenges or conflicts that are present in the world- William
Some things that I learned is having the ability to make
own choices and the rights. This includes attending schools while being fortunate to have access to clean water, socializing among different race, cultures, religion and ethnicity. For example the girls who were kidnapped
in Nigeria by the muslim groups who didn't have a choice
because they are kids this is violence against children.
This shows that there is no assistance for the
government to help save the girls. I feel that the government should be helping the girls families
and doing everything they can to save
What did I learn about the role of systems (e.g., political, transportation, basic living, social) and their function when studying global events?
Politics changes global events in many ways.They control money, aid from outside sources, and war.The government can control water supply and the amount of food one may have.Sometimes if a government is corrupt they can cause famine and poverty.Politics lead many factors with in a country.The way we live here in Canada is great because the government keeps care of the the Canadian people.Then you have some country's where the government does not take care of its people and it leads to uprisings like in the middle-east.Governments roles in global events is a major deal(ect-Russia and Ukraine.
Why I am lucky to be a Canadian?
I am very grateful that I live in such a peaceful place. Canada is one of the most cleanest countries, we have 30% of all fresh water in the world. We have free healthcare
which many countries don't have, getting an education in this country opens many
doors for my future socially and income wise. Also, everyone has a right to vote
and live the life they want to live, which
other countries still can't do. I am very
lucky to be a Canadian.
