FIGHT AGAINST POVERTY IS HONOURABLE

Nairobi Law Monthly - - You Wrote Us -

It is a re­mark­able im­prove­ment that poverty is re­duc­ing in the world as this is cre­at­ing a more ad­mirable global com­mu­nity that is able to look out for it­self. Un­em­ploy­ment which is the lead­ing cause of poverty is slowly be­ing done away with. It is an amaz­ing feat to see that since 1990 the pop­u­la­tion liv­ing in poverty has re­duced by 1.3bil­lion peo­ple. For ex­am­ple, in 2015 there were al­most 1 mil­lion jobs cre­ated re­ported in US alone which brings the no­tion that jobs are be­com­ing more avail­able around the globe. Al­though, af­ter read­ing an ar­ti­cle on your Jan­uary edi­tion, the re­gion of sub-sa­ha­ran Africa seems to still be stricken by high lev­els of poverty. Hence­forth, the re­gion needs help to en­sure that poverty is com­pletely wiped out. This can be done by en­sur­ing ev­ery child, both boys and girls, get ad­e­quate education so as to have an op­por­tu­nity to re­move them­selves and their fam­i­lies from below the poverty line. Mostly of all we should do away with cor­rup­tion and in­equal­ity as well to en­sure that ethics is up­held there­fore, we have an en­vi­ron­ment where ev­ery­one can pros­per.
