    And therefore the welfare system should be abolished. Handouts never work. Instead send the needy to the pantry for food and maybe volunteer work if applicable. Assist in locating appropiate job training or even how to start a business.

    You are absolutely right. If people learn to be kind, compassionate and understanding poverty, along with other social ills, will simply vanish. Charity is just a short term relief, not a permanent solution.

    Great! If people have the same compassion as you there would be no poverty!! However, today poverty exists because of the unjust system and wrong definition of 'development' which is limited to GDP growth. Progress has to be holistic to be sensible.

    How about having development policies that ensure work or jobs to all? If the development system is creating poverty, as in the US, no amount of money or charity can ever eliminate poverty. Poverty also reflects unjust development.

    "...sincerity of purpose; purity of intent..." You just nailed down the reason of so much poverty! It is the absence of human traits of kindness, justice, serving people in need and so on that is responsible for poverty even in rich societies.

    Interesting point - linking breakdown of family structure to lack of proper development of kids in schools. So schools must be redesigned to act as parents too! But that too would not provide family environ. So what next?

    Thanks John for sharing. It appears that making people capable is the right solution to poverty. Lack of money is a symptom (as well as a cause) of poverty but the ability to look after one's own life appear more basic than money.

    Yes, empowerment is the best form of help. Still better if it comes from the State and society as an institutional measure. There is a limit beyond which individuals can't do much.

    Whether charities or not, any thinking revolving around money can't solve the problem of poverty. Charity can at best give you "moral high." "Know the poor" and poverty will be gone in no time! So involve with them as you rightly said.

    Amen! I think the problem is that most people don't know what "poor" is any more. It's usually single mothers who are responsible with money, but they just don't have enough to make it every month. The "irresponsible addicts" are the minority.

    Agree, there has always been a strict correlation between poverty and large families in addition to the mother's educational level. The higher the mother's educational level, the less children she will have. There must be work programs also.

    Yes, the bottom line is: increase the capabilities of the poor so that they can take care of themselves. Giving away anything, except in emergency, is a waste. But where are the institutions to make the poor more capable? The real question.

    Education is perhaps the best form of empowerment of the poor. It helps them come out of poverty on their own.. It is like "teaching to fish" than giving fish!! The poor need empowerment, not charity.

    Certainly support is better than money. The best support is empowerment that comes from the feeling of being cared and of course having a job to earn. Clearly, something is wrong with the economic system else poverty won't exist in the US.

    I think you have a good idea and I do believe that there are several organizations in the U.S that do just that. Poverty is subjective so there are many different needs. Having a multifaceted solution and opportunity will help.

    More than money, the poor need empowerment and opportunities to participate in the economic and social processes. Lack of money is just one of the symptoms, not root cause of poverty. There is the whole social dynamics that creates poverty.

    So, the real issue is sustainable livelihood. This is a serious flaw in capitalistic economies which run on hire-and-fire ethics. So the economic system needs changing to make it people oriented, rather than profits alone.

    Very correct, poverty not merely lack of money; it is just one manifestation of poverty. Poverty is multidimensional and must be seen from different deprivations, not money alone. Therefore, money alone can't eliminate poverty.
