Wondering if fighting against poverty is worthy to try?

Before we go into why you should not overlook the slums around you. What’s poverty?

Poverty is a situation or condition whereby an individual lacks essential needs required for a minimum living.

In Nigeria poverty is  living below 1.90 dollars per day, This means such individual can’t afford nice clothes, healthy foods and a proper house.

Most Vulnerable ones are children as they are faced  with health problems including physical and mental disability, lack of education and homelessness.

40% of people in Nigeria lives in poverty and this can be due to socioeconomic status,gender,ethnicity,climatic changes amongst other factors.

As almost six people in Nigeria become poor every minute, there is need to fight against poverty.

Some of what can be done include the following:

1. Educate Girl child:

Hence,Government needs to set aside funds to educate female child as women are the future of the nation.

2. Investment in health care:

As a quote I once read “poverty is expensive”, wondering how?

Now let’s examine a scenario whereby a family can’t afford balance diet,they would be forced to eat anything available.

As a result, they will be prone to diseases due to lack of  certain nutrients for healthy growth and development.eventually they will have to pay bills at the hospital, unfortunately if not treated on time bills keep accumulating.

Do you now see why we need to invest in health to fight against poverty?

3. Embrace Technology:

There’s need to start investing in innovation like other countries such as Uk,China and other industrial countries.there is need for technology to be brought closer to our homes and environment.

5. There should be end to sexual harassment and human trafficking
