They say “money makes the world go round” and that “education is the key to success”. With money invested in important sectors like education there can be development. That is why if I were a millionaire I would invest more in education and youth empowerment. I would invest in education especially in girl child education. I would make sure that the majority of girls access education because they say that “when you educate a girl child you educate a nation”. This is...

As the proverb goes: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. If I were a millionaire I would teach the world how to fish. I use the phrase how to fish metaphorically, we do not need so many fishermen. Poverty is one of the greatest problems of the world. A millionaire alone will not be able to eradicate poverty but the investment in the human race can be a big step in the right direction. Why does poverty exist?...

Have you ever wondered about what you would do with millions of dollars? Would you buy a new house, or your dream car? Even though these things are immensely attractive, if I were a millionaire, I would invest it in education. The building of schools, offering scholarships for further education, and giving schools the funding they need to improve the quality of education. I would focus my money especially on giving girls the resources they need to receive a quality education....

Dependency Syndrome: In as much as foreign aid is essential for the development of country we should begin to look elsewhere to become more economically independent. Forty-four years after independence we are still dependent on the West for support. We can hardly stand on our own f...

My name is Alick. I am 17 years old and I come from Lusaka, Zambia. Here are some of the reasons I think Zambia is in poverty.................... Politicians/Leaders: The quality of leaders we continue to elect leaves much to be desired. Even in the business world, executives in Zambia continue to hire and promote their own in the organizations. This sidelines the most talented and leaves the mediocre to be the main decision-makers. The moment Zambia gives up the selfish way...

Pakistan experiences the worst forms of poverty. I personally believe that poverty is a major reason contributing towards terrorism in Pakistan. Terrorists take advantage of this and find it easy to attract poor children into their deadly trap by making a fatal deal with them. These innocent souls are already frustrated after seeing their parents struggling for the survival of their children and their siblings who are starving for food. The reward of financial support to their fami...

Her efforts have seen her conquer the male d...

As you all know, education is and has always been the first priority of every country, but still we can't reach the goals we always aim at. Education emergencies are being applied to spread the awareness of a literate mind, but we are still struggling. The reason is that a poor father would not send his son to a school. Instead, he will finds importance in money and will send him to work and bring money home. Educating the mind will eliminate these kinds of thoughts. An educ...
