Problems of Brazil

Brazil is a beautiful country with rich cultures, colors, flavors, languages and customs. But, as with any country in the world, Brazil has its fair share of social issues, which its people and government no doubt work hard to resolve. First of all all their Poverty. The rich people only get about 40% of the country’s income. Meanwhile the poorest only receive about 1% of it. The contrast between the rich and the poor is made even clearer by the fact that some rich and poor people live beside one another. Favelas are the home of the most poor, where they live in old places with hard conditions to live. Another problem is the lack of education in their country. Many children do not attend school because of not being well feed, which makes them unable to develop themselves and to adjust to the social environment of a school. Most start working at a young age to help their parents earn money. Followed by this problem are many more, like the deforestation, crimes and others which make their beautiful country, a place of issues.
