It is hard for us to take in how lucky we really are. While some may be less fortunate, many U.S. Americans do not live in poverty. We have roofs over our heads, clean water, clothing, education, and enough food. Worldwide, about 1 billion children suffer from poverty. This mass amount is upsetting to think about. Could you help support at least one child?
While about 1 billion children live in poverty (1 of 5 children) around 70 million are not able to get an education. Many U.S. citizens are able to access a well managed school. Have you ever wanted to stay home from school, "just because"? These children would have loved to take your place. Think of all these kids who won't be able to grow up as educated, think of their disadvantages. Not only do many children not have access to good schooling, but a mass amount also have unfortunate health frailties. 1 in 10 people do not have access to safe water. Every 10 seconds, a child dies from hunger. It is a sad matter, but fortunately there are ways to support these kids.
