Most people living above the poverty line in America might not know the true realities of the poor. In the last few years, the number of people living in poverty has increased, which implies that things are not getting any better.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the poverty rate in America was 12.3% in 2017. This means that 39.7 million Americans lived in poverty. By the next five years, Unconditional seeks to reduce the population of people living in poverty at least by half. By doing so, the underprivileged and vulnerable individuals will have an equal right to access basic resources, financial services, and they will be able to access the new technology. In order to achieve this, we will come up with programs and strategies that invest in poverty eradication.
Some of the alarming facts about poverty in the United States are;
i. The United States has the largest wealth inequality gaps in the world, where the wealthiest one percent of the households own more than 40% of America’s wealth.
ii. According to the United States Census Commission, in 2016, around 43.1 million Americans were living in poverty.
iii. Poverty affects people of color and women more in the United States, and African Americans have a poverty rate of 27.4%, making them the highest ethnicity group to be affected by poverty.
iv. Older people struggle a lot to keep up with rising health care bills, rising house costs, and utility costs, and most of them do not have enough funds to carry them through.
