Poverty- a state where we do not have our basic needs met- food and water, shelter, medical treatment, education

Causes of Poverty

  • War- create refugees, destroy homes and schools
  • Natural Disasters- destroy the little economic growth
  • Debt- trying to pay these off instead of helping the people
  • Cash Crops- sell these to MEDC's rather than growing food for the people
  • Lack of Health Care- inadequate medicine and lack of education leads to suffering
  • Corrupt Governments- aid money is squandered
  • Lack of Education- cannot escape…
