STAND UP AGAINST POVERTY

SKILDEV PRACTICAL WAYS OF ALLEVIATING POVERTY
Do you know that poverty and illiteracy among women is the root curses of other millennium development goals? If you agreed with me that women are the mother earth designed by God. You should also agree with me that she need special skills and resources to carry out this God ordained function effectively. These skills and resources will enable her to teach, guide and direct her offspring in the right direction to be literate and explorer of the environment technologically and otherwise and if the environment is exploited , her health and the health of children will be taken care off. Therefore women must first be liberated from the grip of poverty/illiteracy. In retrospect other millennium development goals will automatically be resolved through empowering of women.
Secondly, we must help ourselves out from poverty before assisting others. We can be gainfully be employed or become self reliance and create wealth in our communities
