Yes. This is really awesome post with well arranged, well focused.
I'd like to mention about #2 as well!
That's a quite huge difference between Korea and India I realized so far.
(I am from Korea and am living in India, will stay till the end of this year for making people in low-income communities empowering.)
Actually the passion toward their children in Korea is TOO MUCH, then it makes huge problems nowadays. Children get pressure too much, and sometimes it causes that they kill themselves also. That's from .. expectation to their children not to live like their parents.
Compare to Korea, Indians in low-income communities don't know what they can do, what they can support for, and expect to. That's from all #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 reasons with one another reason more. That's from CAST SYSREM it existed.
People in India, and few counties, they have just accepted of the concept of cast system it's still existed even without law.
I mean they just accept their life as like they have to live like that.
I feel we need to figure out about how we can make them can to think about their different future than now with challenges, efforts, and thinking different.

When I came here to live here in some extent, I was so afraid of other people. THey were staring always, and I feel what I heard before I had come made me more frightening.
But whenever I started to talk with them, it was always great. Staring is like some parts of their culture. They are not harmful.
So, that's the one I think it is quite problem. We cannot trust even just neighbor. I don’t want to do that.
