It Takes a Village

Poverty is a problem in every nation. Implications are vast.

Many children cannot reach #health or #mentalhealth #clinics due to various reasons, often it is not allowed to cross #borders, often #transport is expensive, often travelling is associated with #risk; #outreach work is therefore essential.

#Ofcom estimated in 2020 that between 1.14m and 1.78m #children in total in the #UK have no home access to a #laptop, #desktop or #tablet (or #computer or similar), and “an estimated 60 000 11-18 year olds in the UK have no home #access to #internet at all”. This is true for many or most nations.

“Even in the world’s richest countries 1 in 7 #children still live in poverty. Today 1 in 4 children in the #EU are at risk of falling into poverty.” UNICEF

1 in 6 children lives in extreme #poverty, World Bank-UNICEF analysis, Oct 2020

More or less 50% of children “1 billion of the 2.2 billion children worldwide are multi-dimensionally poor – without access to #education, #health, #housing, #nutrition, #sanitation or #water”. More or less 40% of the world’s population will require adequate and affordable housing by 2030. UNICEF

Many challenges can be overcome and risk can be reduced markedly with simple measures. Please contact us at admin@cinaps.co.uk for more information or to attend our annual #presentation, Complex Problems, Simple Solutions.

“Children make up less than one third of the global population, but were 50% of the world’s #refugees in 2018.” UNICEF

#Positive #change is more than #possible, but we need to work #together – it takes a village.
