PROBLEM STATEMENTOur world is ailing. Take a moment’s stare and you will see:
- Poverty Among Women and Children
And children in many other regions of the world share almost similar fate – most especially children in eastern and southern Asia.
These are children who are either orphans or whose families are trapped in extreme poverty – the over 21,000 people that die of hunger every day. They lack means to feeding, clothing, education and health care.
Many times, the breadwinners of such families are women. These women, who toil under the hot sun in the day and the torrential rains of cold night, account for more than half of over 702 million people in the world who live in extreme poverty. They are the vegetable hawking mothers in Western-Africa and the fisher-women in Southeast Asia who live on less than $1 daily.
It is sad enough that these women are poor (like the men folks) but it is saddest that they are more helpless: being vulnerable to sexual exploitation, gender discrimination, lack of access to education and opportunities to work and build businesses.
These women are poor, their rights are not protected and their children are malnourished and exposed to danger. However, they become important tools in securing the future and developing economies when empowered and protected.
- Lack of Access to Proper Education
They are not likely to acquire the basic skills of writing and reading – needed to help them live healthy and productive lives.
This is caused by substandard educational facilities in their schools and the lack of trained teachers, who are skilled enough to mentor future leaders that the world is in dire need of.
Many countries – especially in Africa – do not meet the UNESCO annual funding requirement for education pegged at 26%. They are some of the war stricken regions of the world whose educational funds are being used for military activities.
Worst still, UNESCO Institute for Statistics revealed that there are over 124 million out-of-school children and adolescents in the world – many of whom are in Sub-Saharan Africa.
These children are parented by poor individuals who can’t afford their children’s education or upkeep. Children of these individuals are responsible for their own upkeep; forced to exit the four walls of the school environment to earn a living for themselves. Education is the soul of a nation and the key to unlock the potential of a people and guarantee their future. Unfortunately, this key is elusive to many communities in the world – especially in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia.
There’s need for international donors and non-profit organisations with sincerity of purpose to intervene in the problem lack of access to education in order to end world poverty.
- Lack of Aid to the Needy
This in spite of the spate of non-profits in the world and the campaign to raise fund for the less privileged.
Categorically, Sub-Saharan Africa accounts for half of all the out-of-school children and more than half of world’s population of the poor…but gets less than half of global aid to the needy.
This is why we ask you to join us today in getting help for somebody in the remote part of the world who has been sidelined from any aid whatsoever.
