Why I Care about Ending Poverty
Poverty is not acceptable, it must be stopped and as the future of this world I believe it's our responsibility to do our part and end poverty. Since I was young I have been involved with farming, it's my passion. I've have seen how important sustainable agriculture is and how a good agricultural industry can change a countries economy and the standards of living for people. Poverty has gone on too long, now is the time to stop it. People are dying of diseases we can get simple medications for or have simple hygiene practices to eliminate the chance of catching the disease. People are starving while we are facing an obesity crisis, children are missing out on an education and spend their day working to help their family while we complain about going to school and having to do simple household jobs. We are extremely lucky to live where we do, everyone needs to recognise that. The sooner we recognise that as a country the sooner change can come to the people who need it most.
