India is a country of rich culture and heritage. It is the home for many of us. But due to the huge and increasing population, poverty is rapidly increasing too. Poverty is one of the grueling problems in the present scenario.
Poverty is basically a state where a person does not have enough positions or income even to meet their basic needs. People who are poverty striven are often left without proper housing, clothing over even food.
Poverty eradication is not a charitable endeavor; it is a matter of justice and the means to releasing immense human potential. Despite this, over half of the world’s population lives in poverty, and hundreds are killed every day of the year due to a lack of food and clean water. Together, we can feed the hungry, eradicate illness, and ensure that everyone in the world has the opportunity to flourish and live a full and productive life.
Seven steps to eradicate poverty:
- Implement social protection systems
- Strengthen your resistance to environmental, economic, and social disasters
- Create Pro-Poor and Gender-Sensitive policy frameworks
- Mobilize resources to implement policies to end poverty
- Equal rights to ownership, basic services, technology, and economic resources
- Reduce poverty by at least 50%
- Eradicate extreme poverty
In conclusion, poverty is the inability of a person to achieve a particular level of welfare, in terms of food, clothing, transportation, public services, and wealth. There has been a great difference in the level of poverty in the past decade, but there is a long way to achieve a world without poverty.
NO POVERTY! END POVERTY!
