Poverty in Africa

Africa, a continent endowed with natural and human resources, remains underdeveloped.
Military dictatorship, corruptions, civil war, lack ofinfrastructure, inefficient agriculture, sickness, (HIV, malaria, ebola virus….etc), are present in most African Nations.
There is plenty of food in the world foreveryone. The problem is that hungry people are trapped in poverty cycle. They lack the money to buy enough food to nourish themselves. They become weaker and sickfor the malnutrition and for the same reason they are unable to work, to study and to fight for themselves.
The life expectancy of a person living in Africa isthe lowest in the world. Some of the poorest people in the world are living on less than a dollar a day.
Many countries have a numbers of rebel groups who arefighting each other for the control of different regions.
Now, what is the solution to mass poverty?
Fighting poverty requires many things. May be each country mayhave their own answer, or perhaps many rich countries are helping now, but this problem is bigger than the continent of Africa.
In my personal opinion the solutionis not only to give money or send food . The governments has to start investing in women education, by helping women claim their rights and realize their potential.Women’s lives in rural South Africa are scarred by persistent violence in their families, and in their homes.

The first step of the society start in the familyand the support of the family is the women! Without women there isn’t a family, without family there isn’t a society, without society……?????
