Social Justice Issue

What is poverty?

Poverty is the state of being extremely poor. This social justice issue is widespread on a very large scale. There are too many people who can't meet the basic needs to live including food, clothing and shelter. People aren't living harmoniously with each other internationally, because many of the richer countries that are better off, do not donate as much as they could to those poorer countries who are simply less fortunate. This issue has been raised many times but not enough is being done about it. It is impacting society with the amount of less fortunate and people living in poverty rising in the world.

What can we do?

There are many things we as a community can do to help stop or reduce poverty around the world. If some of us would take time out of our lives to volunteer in overseas countries. We should donate as much as we can such as money, food, clothing and blankets in order to keep those that are less fortunate happy and better off.

We should also aim to build schools in those less fortunate countries in the future. We can get volunteers to teach in those schools to educate the less fortunate kids about life skills. This would help them later in life.
