The issue that I am researching is Poverty and it's effect on the world.
One fascinating fact that I found in my research is that almost HALF the world (over 3 BILLION people) live on less then $2.50/day! When my family and I go weekly shopping on a Friday- we spend over $300!! For people to survive on that much and still stay strong- they're incredible! <3
Another fact- one that I was absolutely horrified at- is that Nearly a BILLION people entered the 21st Century unable to read a book or sign their names! Schooling and education should be accessed by the less-fortunate people. Not being able to read or write are fundamental in modern society and to think that that amount of people don't know how to do either is extremely worrying.
