What do you think about poverty
Hanisauland: Lexicon @todo: from Preprocess
In a nutshell
What does poverty mean?
Poverty means that people do not have enough to lead a decent life. They don't have enough food, not enough clothes, they don't have enough money to support themselves. Around the world, around 3.4 billion people live below the poverty line, 767 million people even in extreme poverty, including around 385 million children. We have our own article on the subject of child poverty here in the lexicon.
Reasons for poverty
A distinction is often made between absolute poverty and relative poverty. What do you mean with that?
This is what one speaks of when someone does not even have the bare essentials to survive. This is the case when someone does not have enough to eat or clean drinking water. Or when people have to live on the street because they don't have an apartment. Those who are sick cannot pay for the medicine or the doctor. In many developing countries, people suffer from absolute poverty. Often children cannot go to school there
Even in rich countries, many people live in poverty. They then own a lot less than other people in their country. ("Relative" means "compared to others".) People cannot buy as good food as other people or simply buy new clothes. You don't have enough money to go to the movies every now and then or buy gifts for birthdays. Children often lack the support they need to achieve good results in school.
