What and Why?

"Poverty", sounds something simple but it is not in the practical means. "Poverty" is a common term which can be applied for the majority of the global population. This simply means the unstable and weak economy. If we penetrate to the interior, it is a far more advanced term than that.

Poverty curtails the basic necessities of people making them seriously suffer. If an individual is unable to obtain proper sanitary, healthy foods as well the education, this state is also identified as "Poverty". So, it is quite obvious that this means inability to acquire ones basic needs means "Poverty", hence unstable economy is the major cause for it. 

This may seems unbelievable for the readers. But the accurate fact is more than 25 000 people die daily due to hunger and hunger related causes. According to UN statistics, it is one person in every three and a half seconds. Most unfortunately the children occupy the majority.  You may wonder, what? isn't there enough food for the global population? There is, but the people do not have money to buy nutritious foods to nourish themselves.

If we pay our attention to the fact, why the people do not have sufficient amounts of money, there is a variety of things to be discussed. Among them the most prominent cause is illiteracy. Illiteracy refers to a state of being unable to do the written communication. As per UN "Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names." and "Less than one per cent of what the world spent every year on weapons was needed to put every child into school by the year 2000 and yet it didn’t happen.". The dark side of illiteracy is the Unemployment. No occupation, no wages, simply means no money. This leads for the poverty, in the sense many more ill effects.
