THE STORY:

Poverty in Nigeria remains significant despite the high economy growth. Nigeria  has one of the economic world highest economic   growth rate {average 7.4% over the last decade},a well developed  economy and plenty of natural resources.

However, it retains a high level of poverty with 63% living below 1 dollar daily, implying a decline in equity despite being the largest oil producer in Africa and the 12th largest in the world, Nigeria is ranked 150 out of 187 on the United Nations development program (UNDP) human poverty in there.  

If the statistic released by the national Bureau of statistic {NBS} on the state of poverty in Nigerian 2010 and 2011 at 69% and 72%% respectively are correct, them these is a state of emergency.

The previous survey in 2004 put it at 54% and by2011, it has jumped to 72% despite the average of 7% annual growth of income, said to led by non-oil sector (large agriculture where the majority of poor are).if the numbers are correct Nigeria would not only miss the MDA goal in 2015 but would probably hold the world record as the country which rather than reduce poverty by half ,actually doubled it.

All the despite plethora of public international to reduce poverty, including   NAPE and MDG funds  in Nigeria most people  can feel  the poverty burden-on the street and high level of dependency.

Poverty is consequently becoming an inheritance – dynasty – whereby the children of the poor will and in all likelihood end up poor, increasingly the rich won’t be able to sleep because the hungry and angry poor are awake and these are the issues that “Save The Ghetto Child” project tends to tackle and reduce to the bearest minimum.
