A baby is born in an impoverished village in Africa. Because this child is born into a poor family, her mother is malnourished and ill, causing her to be unhealthy before she is even born. The infant mortality rate in this situation can be high, but this baby manages to grow up and become a child. In the village where they live they have little access to clean drinking water and food, so she is chronically malnourished and at risk of water-borne diseases.
The chronic malnutrition that she suffers leaves her stunted and suffering from irreversible damage to her development. This limits her ability to learn and grow. It makes her tired and ill, unable to affect change and just struggling to survive.
In Sub-Saharan Africa, 30% of primary school children are not enrolled in school so she has a good chance of becoming one of those 33 million children who miss out on an education. She doesn’t have the chance to go to school, earn a living or lift her family out of poverty. Her parents only made it through a few years of school and the most educated person in the village only has a high school education. At age 12, her parents die and she is left to care for her two siblings. She is married at age 14, becomes pregnant and soon… a baby is born in an impoverished village in Africa. The cycle continues.
Why is Poverty a Cycle and How Can We Break It?
A ‘cycle of poverty’ is defined as a set of factors in which poverty, once it begins, is very likely to continue unless there is some type of outside intervention. When a poor family or community is trapped in poverty for more than three generations, the community has no surviving ancestors who can pass along the social, cultural and intellectual advice to lift the family out of poverty. The family or community has very limited resources and experiences disadvantages as a result of their poverty, which in turn increases their poverty.
So how can we work towards breaking this cycle and improving the lives of these people for the better?
• Education – If a child is able to receive an education, they will learn valuable skills and knowledge that they can use to improve their communities, get jobs and help their families escape from the cycle of poverty.
• Health – Providing healthcare allows impoverished people to be treated for the diseases and conditions that are largely a result of their situation and are bringing them down and stopping them from being able to function.
• Water & Sanitation – Many poor villages and towns do not have access to clean drinking water, which leaves them vulnerable to many diseases. Clean and safe water is essential to a healthy and functioning community.
• Nutrition – Providing the community with healthy food and the means to farm and produce it themselves allows everyone to become fed and nourished, improving health.

There is no need to be bored again with the variety of fantastic free online entertainment available at the click of a mouse. In recent years the technological development has enabled the formation of exceptional online games, which boast of high-quality graphics, an easy to use interface and addictive game play which leaves users wanting more. I have chosen 3 of the best free online forms of entertainment which I guarantee will leave you wanting more!
Online casinos are a great form of free online entertainment; in moments users can access some of their favourite new and traditional casino games including Poker and Blackjack. Casino sites offer an excellent selection of classic games such as Roulette and new, fun variations including themed and more games with increasing levels. For those who are looking for some fun, free and exciting entertainment Grosvenor Casino is a great choice. Play on this site to experience some of their new and beautifully designed games such as the famous Bejeweled and Lucky Lady’s Charm.
My second suggestion for online gaming is ‘Candy Crush Saga’; developed by the makers of the successful ‘Bubble Witch Saga’ the game is a fantastic choice for online gamers. Since its release just over a year ago ‘Candy Crush’ has dominated the online and mobile gaming industry. It is number 1 on the iOS app store and is the biggest and most popular game played via Facebook, and even better it is completely free!
From top to bottom the game has been thoroughly thought through, the bright colourful theme, simplicity of play and exciting action make ‘Candy Crush’ exhilarating to play leaving users wanting more. The online game that beat the infamous ‘Angry Birds’ to the top spot is definitely worth a play, once you discover ‘Candy Crush’ you won’t stop playing!
My final suggestion for the best in online entertainment is ‘Angry Birds’. ‘Angry Birds’ has taken the gaming industry by storm in the last few years and still remains to be a top contender. There are several variations available including ‘Angry Birds Star Wars’ and ‘Angry Birds Space’ and of course the original ‘Angry Birds’.
The game is incredibly simplistic but still very entertaining; gamers are required to use the slingshot to shoot the birds with the objective of destroying the pigs that stole their eggs! The expressions of the characters and the comical sound effects make the playing ‘Angry Birds’ very amusing for all ages. The game is available on most mobile devices so you can enjoy on the move but for maximum gaming experience I suggest to play online.
Its not really a great combination when you are bored of doing things that you usually do and also tired of doing it. But life is really tiring sometimes but hey do not misunderstood me I said that maybe because I need a vacation or a rst for a week. Hubby told me that I need to do something else maybe I might but I like what I do its just sometimes bored of what I am doing. I guess I will just stop for a few hours and do something else. Anyway, wanted to say have a great day today my dear readers. Have a safe and happy day.

Buying and selling property can be exciting, and many people get swept along with the moment, forgetting to ask vital questions. You need to remain level headed as this can be one of the largest decisions you will make in your life. Therefore, choosing the best real estate agent to assist you will help you to make the right decisions.
Real estate agents have many years of experience with both buying and selling properties, which is why taking the time to choose one carefully is essential. They deal with both parties on a daily basis, and understand how stressful the whole moving process can be for you and your family. There will always be questions that you are unsure of, which is why you need to ask.
There is no shame in having a list prepared to ask the real estate agent and professional companies will expect you to have numerous questions. Top quality companies will have a section on their website, simply find the click here button to explore the different suggestions. The questions that you ask will also provide the agent with the information they need to sell your home.
Budget needs to be discussed, and you may want to know if your budget is reasonable for your expectations. The agent will be able to advise you what you can afford, and ensure that you only search for properties within your budget. There is no point in attempting to buy a home that you cannot afford.
Asking the real estate agent about different areas can be beneficial to your house hunt, as they will know the most desirable areas to purchase within. They will also be able to advice on different areas that may suit your needs and budget. Ensure that you take advantage of their knowledge, and use it as much as possible.
When looking to sell your home, you want to ask the real estate agent for tips and hints that may make your home more appealing. What you may have found attractive in the property other people may be put off when viewing. Therefore, creating a neutral, appealing appearance is essential, which the agent can advise on as they are independent.
Research is essential, and discovering what the current market is like for selling houses can make a huge difference. You may not know where to begin searching for this information, however, a top quality real estate agent will be able to advise you whether the market is competitive. All of this information can ensure that you sell your home quicker.
Taking the time to sit down and talk to the real estate agent can make a huge difference, and ensure that you go through the moving process calmer and in control. Selling your home can be an emotional rollercoaster, and one that many people hate to go through. However, with the best support and quality agents you may surprise yourself and enjoy the process.

Buying a house is not that easy specially if you do not have all the cash you need to get one. I have a friend who lost their house since they have a big debt from their mortgage. So in order to be free from the mortgage they let the bank take away the house and just live in an apartment for the a couple of months until they can have another house that paid for. After a year they really got the house and its paid in cash no mortgage involve. I am so happy for her because they save money from owning the house and no more mortgage. They found a beautiful, simple yet not costly house. If you are looking for a house to buy you might check the real estate in jacksonville nc since I saw tons of beautiful and affordable houses in there. There are newly built, and reduced prices house. The houses looks awesome and i am in love of some of them. Check them out you might find a perfect home for your family.

I have even poly mailer bags, bubble mailers, and organza. pouch bags then cello bags. I have more packaging supplies than before. Also I am selling some handmade jewelries online and they are pretty. If interested just contact me my dear.
I have a plan to expand my business one day when time permits. Hubby told me that I can do anything about it once money permits . I am so excited about this plan hope it will be come true. My friends suggested that I might try to open an Asian store since we do not have it in our place. The Asian stores are 45-2 hours from where we live so if there is one in our place then many of the Filipino even Mexicans and Americans can shop at the store I plan to start. In this case I might hire some employees and will do the check background checks now or when the store will start. I will going to ope it in our garage since its big and there are plenty of rooms. We will just transform it to a store and hubby agreed about it. Hoping it will come true soon…
