Millions of people live in poverty. PovSolve believes that any action can help and we are determined to get our community involved to help those suffering from poverty. There are innocent indiviudals dying each and every day due to preventable causes. We MUST take action!
As of January 2013, PovSolve has raised over $40,000, impacted over 5,000 lives, and inspired over 500 people to aid the cause. Although the issue of poverty is with us, it seems far-fetched to many high schoolers living in developed nations and comforting homes, but we must not forgive those who are less fortunate than us. PovSolve has already started this mission in Zambia, Africa, targeting schools and education. However, they face an ongoing problem of inadequate supplies and funds. This inhibits them from making even further change. The Junior Statesmen of America’s 2013 – 2014 state activism theme is centered on human rights and suffering. Together, we can make it our goal to aid education and poverty by contributing toward this cause. We can help build more accessible education to the children in Zambia, who represent the millions of other individuals in this world fighting for a better future.
