Why I Care about Ending Poverty
To me it is UNACCEPTABLE that we live in a world so rich in recourses, more than enough to go around, and yet there are people who suffer, starve and die, not to mention are denied basic education, health care, wages and human rights simply because of where they were born. That is not a just world or a fair world. I could have just as easily been born in their place. Why should people be denied opportunities, safety and joy simply because of the circumstances of their birth.
