Uphold Society with Sustainable Employment

“Seventy-five percent of the world’s poorest countries are located in Africa, including Zimbabwe, Liberia and Ethiopia. The Central African Republic ranked the poorest in the world with a GDP per capita of $656 in 2016.” – Jordanna Packtor. The primary concern of these countries is economic growth. Nonetheless, these governments lack strong institutions to manage education, hunger, and essential services for their people leading to social issues such as discrimination and lack of decision making.

When it comes to living in extreme poverty, the best way to overcome it is to provide sustainable jobs while upholding a secure society. Almost all of those living in poor environments, such as sub-Saharan Africa, earn less than $1.25/day. They can barely find jobs even just to put food on the table.

Moreover, conflict zones also make a remarkable number of people hungry due to inadequate security. People can’t even keep a roof over their heads dealing daily with having to evacuate collapsing buildings. Not surprisingly, creating jobs in these regions is difficult. Showing people what they should do to break free from poverty, focusing on one individual’s anxieties at a time is fundamental. Birth control and basic survival support first, before addressing other issues such as sustainably developing agricultural systems. This requires a lot of skills and enthusiasm to continue in the long term, which might clash with how a nation wants to allocate its scarce resources. The responsibility of building a resilient society is not about showcasing to the world that it has achieved something remarkable but about caring for all races and creating better lives for its citizens.
