What could this world be like?

With all of the talk of the economic crisis and environmental issues, one issue remains ignored: POVERTY. And that really does not mean lack of money. It is poverty in more than one meaning.
  • Countries where this is a large disparity between the bottom and the top (and that definitely includes America). Where they lack the basic needs.
  • Emotional and intellectual poverty (which strikes those of all economic levels)
What can you do:
Global call to action against poverty
Taking It Global

As a teacher, we see both aspects. It is difficult to prepare children for the world, when they do not even have the basics to compete.
