Intro
Poverty facts
Causes Of Poverty
Canada's poverty
Poverty means when someone is at the state of being very poor.
Nearly half of the world’s population — more than 3 billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty (less than $1.25 a day).
1 billion children worldwide are living in poverty. According to UNICEF, 20,000 children die each day due to poverty.




Facts On Poverty
More than 1 billion people lack adequate access to clean drinking water and an estimated 400 million of these are children. Because unclean water yields illness, roughly 443 million school days are missed every year.
In 2011, 165 million children under the age 5 were stunted (reduced rate of growth and development) due to chronic malnutrition.
Facts On Poverty
It would cost approximately $40 billion to offer basic education, clean water and sanitation, reproductive health for women, and basic health and nutrition to every person in every developing country.
80 percent of the world population lives on less than $10 a day.
A quarter of all humans live without electricity — approximately 1.6 billion people.
Facts On Poverty
Most of the low and middle income countries are in the southern part of the world. The people in these countries know this too. Only 20 percent of the world lives in high income countries and 80 percent of the world lives in low middle income countries. There are more low income countries than high income countries.

The North/South Pattern
some causes of poverty might be that if someone has low amount of money that leads to poverty.
If somebody can not meet there basic need that can also lead to poverty.
If you also have low money and can not meet your basic needs you are also in the poverty cycle. I will be showing you a picture of the poverty cycle.
Causes Of Poverty
Causes Of Poverty
In 1992, 128 countries with low and middle incomes held a conference to talk about how they could get their share of the world's resources. they decided to form a group called Global South. This group works towards making sure the United Nations and other organizations try to solve the problem of sharing the world's resources.
The North/South Pattern
The percentage of Nigerians living in absolute poverty – those who can afford only the bare essentials of food, shelter and clothing – rose to 60.9 percent in 2010, compared with 54.7 percent in 2004, Nigeria’s national bureau of statistics said.
Although Nigeria’s economy is projected to continue growing, poverty is likely to get worse as the gap between rich and poor in Africa’s largest oil producer continues to widen.
Comparing Canada with Niger
1 in 10 Canadians live in poverty. That’s 3.4 million people. 1 in 4 of those living in poverty are children. Four million people are struggling to find decent affordable housing.There are an estimated 150,000 to 300,000 people that are homeless in Canada. According to Food Banks Canada,
food bank use is at the highest level on record, rising 28% over the last 2 years.
Canada's poverty
Poverty disproportionately affects older people, women, children, recent immigrants, the disabled and aboriginal people. The gap between the rich and the poor is on the rise in Canada. The top-earning 1 per cent of Canadians almost doubled their share of national income, from 7.7 per cent to 13.8 per cent, over the past 3 decades. While earnings for the middle class stagnated and earnings for the low income group fell by 20.6 percent. This undermines social cohesion.
Canada's poverty
Yes, I do think that Canada should send aid to other countries. if Canada send aid to other countries like maybe Niger it would help Niger because the poverty in Niger is rising with almost 100 million people living on less than $1 a day, despite strong growth in Africa’s second largest economy. and Canada 1 in 10 Canadians lives in poverty. That’s 3.4 million people. It would be helping even if 1 person send 1 thing.
Should Canada send aid to other countries?
I got my information form Wikipedia.
Bibliography
Thank you for watching.

poverty causes little education which leads to not having a job which leads to lack of money which causes poverty that is the poverty cycle.
