Poverty is an issue faced by countries and governments all around the world. Most of the time with poverty, hunger comes together. Because of the lack of quality in their life, most often they don’t have the facility of having a proper meal. Poverty is defined as the state of being extremely poor.

According to UNICEF and other organizations nearly 50% of the world’s population, more than 3 billion people live on less than $2.50 a day and more than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty. Less than $1.25 a day and 22000 children worldwide die each they due to poverty.

According to studies the poorest country in the world in Niger. And according to the Global Hunger Index GHI, Haiti is the most starving country in the world with a GHI value of 23. The malnutrition of children between 1 to 5 years is 22.9%. Like Niger and Haiti most of the countries with high rates of poverty suffer from political corruption and corrupt governments.

Poverty in wealthy countries takes a different face than poverty in poor countries. They suffer from a lack of job opportunities and being homeless and mainly from not having a proper stable income. The governments have been running poverty prevention programs from the 1960s. But even after trillions of dollars spend the programs were unable to change the poverty line significantly.

Most people believe that poverty can be solved by simply taking money from wealthy people through taxes, and distributing them among the poor. But giving money to the poor won’t fix the problem. That’s why the system has failed all these years. By just giving them money, they get used to not having worked for money, and that could keep them in poverty forever.

The most important aspect of ending poverty is giving the opportunity to work and earn. By giving them an opportunity, it gives them the ability to contribute to the economy and at the same time, they will have financial and social stability because of the fixed income.

If governments could be fair to everyone. People will have a higher chance of getting out of poverty. There always will be people in the state structure that will favor the rich and wealthy. A study in 2017 showed that in the US more than 35% of the country’s wealth is shared among 1% of the total population. Wealth inequality is also a huge problem in efforts to prevent poverty.

Lots of political organizations and politicians feed on poverty all over the world. Most presidents all over the world have promised their country, freedom from poverty. But this has been going on and on for many years now. The system has always been unkind to the poor.

Some organizations believe through prevention programs and opportunism extreme poverty can be ended in the next 2 to 3 decades, and by sustainable development goals, they believe that poverty rates will drop in the upcoming years. It can be ended. And it will someday. But for that, every nation in the world must come forward and they should help the countries in need. It can be tuff but it’s achievable.
