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: Poverty is a serious problem that needs to be fixed in order to strive for equality. I believe the solutions are to improve education and health. This can be done with the help of the government. The government needs to step in and help to make sure each kid is receiving an equal education. Also, the government needs to help families who are not living in the greatest conditions and who are suffering from health problems because of where they live. These families also need to receive nutritious food to help them succeed in education and this will assist them in becoming healthier. They should get help to receive the food from the government and nonprofit organizations. As a country they need to put race and money aside to close the gap between the wealthy and poor. This will allow more equality for kids and families who are deserving of it. In conclusion, it will help the country better as a whole when the government considers helping the people who need it the most.
