The U.S. Helping Women Around the World Get Out of Poverty

14 Sep

Someone had a previous post about poverty and I agree that it is a significant problem for women around the world. I also comment on that previous post explaining that a lack of education is a big contributing factor to female poverty. This video shows how the USAID is helping women get out of poverty across the world. The woman in this video has no formal education and struggled to make ends meat. With the help of the USAID, she was able to get training to help her start a business and improve her socioeconomic status. However, some U.S. politicians question whether we should be spending this money on these types of foreign aid. What do you think? Do you think that we should be spending this money on programs within the U.S.?

Here is a link for the video.
