The Academe voice-out to end poverty.


I recently watched a short documentary film on malnutrition in the Philippines and learned how it aggravates poverty, especially of people coming from the poorest of the poor. Hunger and poverty are a global problem. In my own point of view, we cannot end poverty unless people become aware of their responsibility over the issue. However, we can make plans and programs to alleviate poverty. How can we help the government on its advocacy program? I have my own formula; this is through right education, frugality and tithes. I was raised by my parents deprived of any form of luxuries in life. Having three meals a day is considered a great blessing and having snacks in-between meals is considered overwhelming. Feeding the mind is more important as what my father usually stressed in our young minds. We're very thankfiul my mother was around and knew how to balance everything and make both ends meet. Poverty is just a state of mind. Allow me to use the proverb of Lao Tzu, "Give a Man a Fish, Feed Him For a Day. Teach a Man to Fish, Feed Him For a Lifetime". We should learn how to become self-sufficient. Take action now!
