No child deserves to sleep hungry and with proper efforts, this can be achieved in quick time. Removal of poverty is not easy, but with efforts from all sectors it can happen. Concentrated efforts is what is the need of the hour to tackle the menace of poverty world over.
The problem of poverty has been a continuing one. From time immemorial people have suffered the ill effects of being deprived and this even continues in the modern times. The lack of quality life is something that needs to be given considerable thought on the part of the government. People from all sects need to be uplifted in every nation of the world. All that is needed on the part of the authorities is to work sincerely on finding ways to end poverty.
Need to Educate
Lack of proper education is the basic reason that people suffer from various problems. A poor person cannot hope to provide the best of education to his child, which further elevates the issue. Once a person gets at least a basic education, then he can be expected to act sensibly. The problem of overpopulation is a result of no formal education to millions of people across the globe. A good education facility for all is the basic requirement at present.
The income disparity in different levels is also a cause of poverty. All such social evils like sexual harassment, labor discrimination, forced or bonded labor should be strictly abolished from the work place. Equal wage for similar work across the board should be made available to the people.
Minimum Wage Rate
Another important rule that needs to be put in place is about fixed minimum wage rate per hour of labor. This is sure to help if implemented with a proper measure. The government needs to put mechanisms in place to ensure people get what they deserve.
Every country has a duty towards its people and the government being the representative of the State needs to act accordingly. Instead of acting in a populist manner, they should work for the betterment of the whole population. Formulate policies that can help eradicate poverty from the country in the coming days.
Proper health care facilities are not available in many areas of developing and the underdeveloped nations in Asia and Africa. This needs to be fixed as people who are unhealthy can’t be expected to work for their own betterment.
Sanitation and Water resources
Underdeveloped areas need to be given potable drinking water along with sanitation facilities. Sanitation is a basic requirement as dirty places are sure to cause major health problems repeatedly. Drinking water should be made available as it a necessity for one and all.
The skill development should be promoted and training institutions built to give poor youngsters a chance to eliminate the cycle of poverty. Vocational training can help the youth to join the mainstream population and work to earn their livelihood without any support. The authority should try to develop and sustain cottage industry that can form a base for providing growth in rural areas.
We are all global citizens now and need to see the world as one. A natural calamity teaches us how compassionate we can be, so let’s not forget it when peace prevails. Community service programs are being a great medium to reach out to the impoverished people. If everyone contributes their bit, then there is no need to worry about poverty.
