I. Introduction

    Poor and uneven resource distribution has always been an issue in the Philippines, but the current global financial crisis and the spike in food, fuel, and commodity prices since 2008 have brought it to the fore. People in poverty in the United States have reduced far more slowly and unevenly over the previous four decades than they have in countries like the People's Republic of China (PRC), Indonesia, Thailand, or Viet Nam. Economic booms and bust cycles have occurred before but have had little effect on reducing poverty in today's economy. Uncontrolled population growth, as well as a wide range of economic disparities between areas and sectors, are also contributing to the slow decline in poverty

    The aim of this exercise is to provide a picture of what poverty looks like in the nation of the Philippines, which is the subject of this essay. An in-depth analysis of what causes sustains, and worsens poverty among Filipinos is provided along with instances of how people who have survived poverty have coped with their circumstances. This is performed via the use of a literature review. This research looked at the poor, homelessness, and subhuman living conditions, marginalization from economic growth, mental and physical health concerns due to socioeconomic deprivation and deficiencies in health care, family stressors, overseas working, increased violence and social injustices against children, increasing numbers of street children, and cultural values in the Philippines. The common causes of p[overty are Economic growth has been slow to moderate for the past 40 years, reducing poverty elasticity; weak job creation and employment quality; failure to fully develop the agriculture sector; high inflation during crisis; high population growth; high and persistent inequality (incomes and assets), reducing the benefits of economic expansion.

II. Purpose

    Hunger is one of the most severe expressions of poverty, and it is a violation of a fundamental human right recognized by legally binding international conventions as a fundamental human right. That should be sufficient. The fact that hunger and undernutrition lower labor productivity, increase susceptibility to sickness, lower school performance in children, diminish the desire to make hazardous but more lucrative investments, and transfer themselves from one generation to the next should be noted. It assists individuals in overcoming poverty more easily by encouraging them to take excellent care of their farms and to conserve the soil in an appropriate manner. But also because it has the potential to aid in the preservation of our bountiful soil for future generations. Having this project may also help to reduce crime in the Philippines and the number of Filipinos working abroad since they would be able to work in this country.

III. Description

    When the program is completed, our top executives will have a better understanding of who is really impoverished and in desperate need of government aid. People in many different sections of the nation are unable to feed themselves on a regular basis due to a lack of work opportunities. Therefore, it is critical to supply working people with those who are still capable of contributing to the growth of our economy and providing service to our nation.

 IV. Support

    Our local governments must offer and allocate appropriate financing for such programs since the vast majority of the poor will find it difficult to utilize them, particularly when it comes to budgeting. This is a significant accomplishment, especially considering the breadth of both our nation and the Philippines. As a consequence of this plan, the government will increase the amount of assistance available to every worker from every household. We will need billions of dollars to implement a universal coverage strategy.
