What does poverty mean for children? The most revealing way of understanding children’s experience of poverty is to talk to children themselves. While much more work needs to be done on listening to children and young people on their experiences and the responses that could make a difference in their lives, in engaging with children some common threads emerge: Child poverty is multidimensional For children, poverty is about more than money. Children experience poverty as being deprived in the immediate aspects of their lives, areas including nutrition, health, water, education, protection and shelter. Monetary poverty plays a crucial role. While these multiple dimensions of poverty and deprivation are of vital importance to children, monetary poverty also matters. A family’s standard of living is one of the crucial determinants of the deprivations children experience. Children living in severe monetary poverty lack the necessary resources for optimal physical and cognitive growth and development, access to quality services such as healthcare and education. Child poverty does long-term damage to children and societies Poverty is different for children than for adults. Poverty in childhood, both monetary and multidimensional, can have especially devastating effects, often distorting and undermining children’s physical, cognitive and social development. Childhood and adolescence is a critical stage in the formation of individual capacities, and deprivations during these stages can send children into a lifelong trajectory of low education levels, marginalization and reduced productivity, leaving them unable to realize their full potential and contribute fully to their communities and societies. The devastating lifelong effects are especially acute for children with the overlapping deprivations of poverty and discrimination, which can affect some vulnerable groups disproportionately: girls, children belonging to indigenous or minority ethnic groups; children with disabilities; and children living outside of households are among those for whom the risks of poverty and its consequences can be particularly severe.
