Poverty and Education

Ivan Liu Global Perspectives


According to the Taiwanese Ministry of Health and Welfare, data shows that in the first quarter of 2016, 2 out of 10 low-income/middle-income people are children under the age of 12. More troubling, underage teenagers account for almost 40% of the total Taiwanese population in .

The growing between the rich and the poor also reflects on education, based on factors like housing area/condition, education resources, and generally lower self-confidence.

We at Group wish to give back to the community and commit to charity work to help children who want to learn, but do not have the necessary tools they need.
