I grew up in a poor Houston neighborhood. As a kid growing up we had severely limited options in our area. The schooling institutions were sub- par and understaffed. The teachers they could get certainly did not care about their students. For many people in these situations it is the lack of a formal education that holds them back.
To improve the futures of low - income families here and abroad we start with education. Inspiring children to learn and seek self - improvement are key factors in the motivation of many households attempting to better their situations. In some countries these programs would have to start small. Literacy rates need to be improved throughout the population to give them a shot at success. Funding would need to be given to public schools, or educational groups with the mandate of improving quality of life through education. If an individual does not have access to the many programs set up to help them, then they have no place to start. without a place to start there can be no catalyst for change.
