Hello students teachers and parents, yesterday all the seniors had to set up in the discovery center. Then the middles, juniors and preps came in. Also some of the parents came in and looked at our work. Great job to all of the seniors, you all did amazing.
It is mostly happening in
- Asia and the pacific
- Latin America/ Caribbean
- Developed countries
our issue that we are interested in is Hunger and Poverty. This links to Catholic Social Teaching of the Dignity of the Human person.
This links to the Dignity of the Human person because poverty and hunger is impossible to live a life commensurate with this dignity.
My scripture link is When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
What circumstances force people into poverty and hunger?
- Lack of investment in agriculture
- Climate and weather
- War and displacement
- Unstable markets
- Food wastage
What causes hunger and poverty?
There are many reasons why hunger and poverty exist and they can often be linked and here are some important reasons why
People that are living in poverty cannot afford food let alone nutritious food for themselves and family members. That makes them weaker and less able to afford money, then they will be trapped in hunger and poverty because the will not have the essentials to escape
Lack of investment in agriculture
Way too many countries lack key agricultural infrastructure E.G not enough roads, warehouses and irrigation. This results in high transport costs, lack of storage facilities and unreliable water.
Justice denied leads to devastating results. Eviction, unsafe housing. Dangerous work space, elder abuse, violence, hunger and poverty and that is why we need justice otherwise our world would be no more.
