How we can reduce poverty and inequality in developing countries?

I'm from Peru. A developing country. We are having a good perfomance in our economy, but we have to face a non resolved problem. One to 3 peruvians live on poverty conditions (see the link for wikipedia information bit.ly/17qs4Rw) .
How we can face this problem?

  • Oct 25 2013: I agree with some of the comments below that the issue of inequality can be helped through education. Although many of these countries are getting better with inequality and freedom they still lack basic rights for women and minority groups. Most of the developing countries that are struggling with inequality issues have the resources needed to economically thrive, all it takes is utilizing those resources. In America and other well set countries our definition of developed may be farfetched compared to other countries. In order for a country to be considered developed I believe everyone should be in good health and resources should be used, which would give the citizens more opportunities to get jobs and improve their lives. By making education a bigger priority people will be given the opportunity to get jobs that pay more than jobs that require no education.
