In many impoverished communities, children don't have resources like books or uniforms, causing them to fall behind without the support to catch up. Youth drop out of school to support their families and never go back. And entire school systems are understaffed, failing to provide adequate education to the children they serve.
Living in poverty can mean inadequate health and dental care, chronic malnutrition, poor hygiene and unsafe sanitation conditions, a lack of education about reproductive health and mental health, and preventable diseases going untreated.
To truly end generational poverty, children must have hope for the future and see possibilities for themselves beyond their circumstances. Without life skills or coping mechanisms, they are unable to overcome their environment, thus continuing the cycle of poverty for another generation.
