People don't become poor all on their own, we don't believe. Perhaps a child is born into poverty, but the poverty began some time back in the family's history. There are many factors that will force people into poverty such are wars, droughts and famines, economic crisis, and many more. The question is how do we help them get out of poverty when so many factors are working against them? Is providing the poor with basic education good enough? We don't think so...but it is better than no education.
Mother Teresa once spoke up to her critics who said she was spoiling the poor, enabling them, and keeping them dependent on her goodness. In response to her critics, she said that in our society so many people have spoiled the wealthy so isn't it about time someone spoils the poor.
So to that end, what if we can spoil the poor with the best education, the best schooling that everyone would wish to have? How would that impact poverty in this world? We would never know until we try.
