Poverty

About 25,000 people die every day of hunger or hunger-related causes, according to the United Nations. This is one person every three and a half seconds, as you can see on this display. Unfortunately, it is children who die most often. Yet there is plenty of food in the world for everyone. The problem is that hungry people are trapped in severe poverty. They lack the money to buy enough

Poverty reduction is a major goal and issue for many international organizations such as the United Nations and the World Bank. The World Bank estimated 1.29 billion people were living in absolute poverty in 2008. Of these, about 400 million people in absolute poverty lived in India and 173 million people in China. In USA 1 in 5 children lives in poverty. In terms of percentage of regional populations, sub-Saharan Africa at 47% had the highest incidence rate of absolute poverty in 2008. Between 1990 and 2010, about 663 million people moved above the absolute poverty level. Still, extreme poverty is a global challenge; it is observed in all parts of the world, including the developed economies.

food to nourish themselves. Being constantly malnourished, they become weaker and often sick. This makes them increasingly less able to work, which then makes them even poorer and hungrier. This downward spiral often continues until death for them and their families.


Poverty is a complex phenomenon. It is caused by a range of factors which work together and result in inadequate resources. Worklessness This is a major cause of poverty. In 2009/10, 42 per cent of all families below the UK poverty line contained no working members.1 There are numerous reasons people do not work. Some of these reasons are personal: many people have caring responsibilities, others suffer from a health condition or have a disability while some encounter discrimination that acts as a barrier to work. But there are also structural reasons why people do not work. For example, if the labour market does not provide enough jobs that match the skills and qualifications of unemployed people, or that are close enough to people’s homes, working is not a realistic option.

What do you think about the organization?- The thing that brought me to the organization is that, when i start to talk with people i realized how different it wasn't an ordinary NGO than just make thing for people, is an organization that realy believe deeply and helping people to help themselves and give them the recourses and the plannings. What impressed you the most?- i think that the thing that impressed me the most was actually gone to Bangladesh in India and seen the work underground, before i read about it and talk but after i lived and saw it, i understand how women help their families and their communities, and how they get out of their shell and resolves the problems by themselves. Which challenges do you see in the organization?- I think as the Hunger Project call it themselves treated organization, i think that is hard to describe to people who don´t understand what it means, but once they understand that we are growing and they see our work they realized the kind of project that we are.

Angelina Jolie Charity Work A mother to six children and a natural beauty both inside and out, she needs no introduction as humanitarian spokes person to the world. Jolie first became personally aware of worldwide humanitarian crises while filming Tomb Raider in Cambodia. She eventually turned to The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the agency mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide, for more information on international trouble spots. Since 2001, Jolie has been on field missions around the world and met with refugees and internally displaced persons in more than 20 countries, including Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Cambodia, Pakistan, Thailand, Ecuador, Kosovo, Kenya, Namibia, Sri Lanka, North Caucasus, Jordan, Egypt, New Delhi, Costa Rica, Chad, Syria, and Iraq, to name a few, and most recently visited earthquake victims in Haiti on her latest trip to help survivors of conflict and natural disaster. The Jolie-Pitt Foundation, dedicated to eradicating extreme rural poverty, protecting natural resources and conserving wildlife, donated $1 million to Doctors Without Borders, an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971. The organization provides aid in nearly 60 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters, for emergency medical assistance to help victims of the Haiti earthquake.
