Poverty Alleviation

Poverty has been defined in the literature from two perspectives; the narrow economic perspective and the expansive cultural perspective. The economic perspective defined poverty in terms of the external circumstances that influence a person’s behaviour, especially with respect to economic discussions and transactions like the purchase of consumer goods, the acquisition of skills and the provision of productive services.

In this regard, poverty is defined as a state of deprivation in terms of both economic and social indicators such as income, education, health care, portable water, access to food, social status, self esteem and self actualization.
Poverty connotes many things i.e. lack of material well-being, insecurity, low self confidence, psychological distress, unpredictability, lack of freedom of choice and action and inability to believe in one self.
We have therefore taken it as a responsibility to alleviate poverty in the society through our lay down plans.

  • Educational Scholarship
  • Material aid for the less privilege
  • Alleviating the plight of widow
  • Provide assistance and succour to orphans
