Fun Facts!

Poverty is making so little, you are powerless, and often have to forage for food. You cannot provide your family or yourself with basic needs.

Poverty starts when someone has a poor education. This would lead to making very low income. If you then have kids you cannot afford a good education for them, and the cycle continues.

Poverty exists all around the world

We have bought products from fair trade stores, provided individuals in poverty with basic needs, and aids to developing countries.

Buying products made with poverty and ignoring poverty right in front of our eyes.

Plan Canada provides education, heath care, water, sanitation, and security. The Federal government provides aids like clothes, cleaning products, economical assistance, food, and sanitation products.

One in seven Canadian kids live in families that fall under Statistics Canada's "low-income measure"Families led by single mothers, people between ages 55-64, people with disabilites, and aboriginals are the most vulnerable to poverty.Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names.Almost half the world-over 3 billion people- live on less than $2.50 a day.

We also didn't keep our promise to stop poverty. The House of Commons unanimously resolved to end poverty in Canada by the year 2000, but more families lived in poverty in 2011 than 1989.
