Poverty to an extent is mainly because of mismanagement. I agree that many people are born in poor families. I am from India and have seen the poorest of the poor.
As a teenager, we used to go to an ashram in another state by train. When the train reached certain stations outside ours, small children, very poorly dressed and dirty to boot used to extend their hands for food packets. Seeing this, we used to give our food to them. The sight has not left my mind even now and I remember the poverty and how the kids missed education and had to beg for a living.
To a large extent, many people are taught that it is okay to beg. That it is okay to live off others instead of working hard. the mindset should change. The youth should try to earn a living by learning skills and working instead of relying on government benefits alone.
There are many success stories of people who have risen from the dust and made it big. Why not follow their lead.
If there is a willpower, a person can remove poverty.
The attitude has to change.
If there is a will to work hard and earn money and also save some of it, then poverty will vanish. Also, the person who feels he is poor should learn to manage his funds in such a way that he does not lose all of it.
* do not gamble
* do not buy lottery tickets
* do not indulge in vices
* aim for bigger and better things
* envision your life in a better situation
* try to help others around you in a selfless manner
* never trust anyone with your money and papers
The above is true for able persons. For the differently abled, poverty should be removed with the help of governments and people who are willing to help.
