The Problem:Â A Generational Cycle of Poverty Affecting Young Girls in Under-served Communities.
Girls of disenfranchised families are at a higher risk of making poor life choices, which affects both their physical and psychological well-being. These children tend to make negative decisions regarding sex, health, and nutrition which becomes detrimental to living healthy lives.
Additionally, they are at greater risk of dropping out of school or not continuing with higher education. Basic problems at home such as “whats for dinner?”, or not having a parent at home to help with homework or to keep the house quiet,Â makes it hard for these young students to concentrate on completing school work in the home environment. Eventually, these conditions hinder their employment opportunities and financial stability.
The end result is a generational cycle of poverty that produces children who rarely develop the proper life skills necessary to thrive and become productive members of society.
