The problem of poverty has become global issue and often was used as main material in various debates and discussions. Thousands of programs have been created to oppose poverty, from the levels of individual, government and internationally. Will poverty end??? Today, October 15, 2008, millions blogger around the world, including this blog, creates post about poverty and hope will rise an awareness towards that issue.
There are many definitions about poverty, but I gazed at poverty from three points of view :
1) Absolute Poverty.
If someone unable to fill up the main needs for food, clothes, residence, health, education.
2) Relative Poverty.
Someone that has been at position above from absolute poverty but below the capability of the community around.
3) Cultural Poverty.
This tightly related to the attitude of someone or community who did not want to try (lazy) to improve the standard of living although having efforts from others that wanted to help.
Below is my view to fight poverty :
1) Stop The Economic Embargo.
Stop the economic embargo against the other country, because it related to the living.
2) Programs of Quality Education.
This the long-term aim! Creates quality manpower to be able to compete in the globalization era. It must the quality education!!! Because the low standard education is not on its era now.
3) Create Embarrassed Culture.
Create the embarrassed feelings if unable to support family personally. This feelings also including for the grafter.
4) Create Employment Opportunities.
This one is not my skill. There are a lot of expert and government who know more. I just seeing many unemployment because of narrow employment opportunities.
Next... if you have a "crazy idea" to share with other, feel free to add in comment.
The proverb which I like it:
1. Don't give the fish but gave the fishhook.
2. Grateful for what you owned, if not, you will always feels lack because the human wish has no limit.
