Poverty impacts 8 areas of life

Millions of children are isolated and exploited due to extreme poverty.

Malnutrition

Children go days without food resulting in severe malnutrition causing other physical and mental health complications.

Homelessness

Inadequate shelter makes children vulnerable to abuse, exploitation, and illness.

Illness

Limited access to healthcare and a lack of hygiene leads to life-threatening disease and poor health.

Illiteracy

Education is not accessible or sustainable for children who are sick, homeless and unable to afford school fees.

Inability to Earn Money

Legitimate jobs that pay a reliable wage are inaccessible to orphans and vulnerable children.

Exploitation

Vulnerable children are unaware of their rights and their voices are not heard because of their social status.

Stigmatization

Orphans and vulnerable children have lost hope of belonging because of being isolated and stigmatized.

Hopelessness

Isolation leads children to believe God has forgotten and even abandoned them.

Extreme poverty is complicated

Addressing multiple barriers simultaneously is the only way to overcome the problem.
