Poverty reduction has been a major problem for all developing countries. As Kofi Annan stated “The biggest enemy of health in the world is poverty” (Kofi Annan, cited in WHO, 2013). Poverty is experienced all over the world but its effect is most significantly seen in developing countries like Philippines, one of the nations with a high rate of poverty according to World Health Organization. Addressing this problem poses an extensive standing struggle to the Philippines since this has been the primary objective of previous administrations. According to Schelzig (2005), the Philippines has obvious unequal income distribution which supports the conclusion that the Filipinos in the lower distribution is highly susceptible in impoverished living conditions and depravity from basic sustenance and necessities, leaving households vulnerable (Schelzig, 2005). It is quite visible that there are still many people who are suffering from hunger and nothingness. Anyone who witness poverty can question; does the government do actions towards this? Everyone needs to be aware on what poverty can do to a person. Poverty is not a simple thing that should be ignored. The people that are struggling to meet the basic necessities such as food, shelter, and clothing should be prioritized by the government because many suffers from hunger to sickness, and then death due to the lack of resources that can be afford by the poor. The researchers would like to raise awareness to the people living in Ozamis City to act upon the poverty of the citizens on the said city.
Our group aims to create Change.org petition, a blog, Facebook page and a Twitter page to help us attain our goals. We will be making articles, posters, infographics and other related information concerning the issue that is poverty which many people are facing right now in our community and how it affects the lives of people. The scope is to be able to reach the government and the concern citizens to sign our petition.
We will need a couple of days to make and develop this project and we will start promoting this once the website/blog will be uploaded. This problem must spread to let people know and to support our issue about this topic. This project need funds to provide those materials in conducting this awareness and for making some moves by giving fliers and such. We will also use the social media such as facebook, twitter, change.org and website/blog like wordpress.
