MY research is on poverty and how it affects our nation. About 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day. There are 2.2 billions children on earth living in poverty. 1 billion of these children live in poverty. 21,000 of these children die everyday of starvation. There is plenty of food in the world to go around. Then why are so many people dying everyday of hunger? The problem is that people who are hungry are stuck in severe poverty. Their money is very scarce for them to buy enough food to nourish themselves. This means that they are malnourished all the time and being so leads to weakness and sickness. This makes it extremely harder for them to find work because they are so sick and weak. These people didn’t want this life. Poverty can be caused by the amount of education, skill, experience, and intelligence. It can also be cause by poor health, old age, or even disabilities. Almost 1 billion people entered the 21st century unable to read or sign their names. 121 million children are out of an education. In this economy you need to have at least a Bachelor’s Degree to find a decent job.
