As much as we’d like to deny it, the fact remains that poverty is still rampant without any awareness most countries. As much as we’d like to deny it, the fact also remains that poverty is still rampant without any resolution in most countries. As much as we’d like to deny it, the fact even remains that poverty is still rampant because of us in most countries.
And no, you read that right. And yes, you also read that right.
Poverty is still rampant in most countries due to lack of awareness. Without awareness, poverty remains rampant due to lack of resolution. Without resolution, poverty remains rampant because of us – the ones who only turn a blind eye, the ones who only take things for granted, and most of all: the ones who don’t have to lose anything.
Then again, there are still those who are aware about poverty more than others. Then again, there are also those who are resolute about poverty more than others. Then again, there are even those who are just like any other person in this world – only this time, they are the ones who don’t care about having to lose anything, so long as they get to help other people get up on their feet and fight poverty like never before in their entire lives.
And if you’re looking to be a significant part of the latter group, you can begin with these simple ways to fight poverty by yourself:
Write about it.
Writing about it means more visibility. More visibility means more awareness. More awareness means more resolutions and so on and so forth. The bottom line here is, writing about it – poverty itself, as well as its short-term effects on the well-being of a person and its long-term effects on the well-being of a person’s loved ones – will definitely make all the difference, both in the hearts and minds of people and even those who only turn a blind eye and who only take things for granted.
Act on it.
It could be as simple as baking your own bread and giving to the homeless people, along with other things they need such as blankets and water. It could also be as elaborate as creating your own company and hiring from the homeless people, along with other benefits they need such as monthly raises and healthcare. Actions speak louder than words, after all. What better way to fight poverty by yourself than acting as a medium for other people, especially the homeless people, to get a better life for themselves?
