There are lots of students who belong to the below poverty line but deserving to pursue their studies and one of it is the niece of my husband. She is grade 10 now and wants to pursue until K12. She came this afternoon and asked his uncle if he can give her some amount for her shoes and new school uniform and that's the only gift she's asking from my husband. I give her immediately without hesitation because I admire those students who has a dream of finishing their studies and not thinking that poverty is a big hindrance of finishing their studies. How about you friends, do you know someone who are poor but deserving students and want to pursue their studies? Do you admire them also?

I know many poor but deserving students and am glad that there have been scholarship programs now for these kind of students.

Yes, but you know here in my place there are many politicians who give scholarship, instead to poor and deserving students they give it to some students who don't deserve it, like students with parents who are known by the politicians and their grades are not qualified, so sad to think.

@ida123 Those notorious politicians should not be voted again.

its admirable indeed that these kids strive still inspite of the struggle. i know kids (even college students) who walk a distance (without money) to be in school. i wish them good life.

That is true, they tend to walk just to reach their schools even under the heat of the sun and bring with them their food(steam corn and salted fish)

If I get lucky in this life and become rich my advocacy is to help these type of people. The kind of people who have big dreams for their family and self but is being held down by poverty. I wish I could but as of the moment I cannot.

I know you can do that in the right time, just be patient and ask God's help for His providence.

@ida123 I hope so, then I would motivate people to do the same, give these kids the chance to become who they want to be when they grow up. And also for the parents to be supportive to their children.

I'm glad you were able to help your husband's niece. Some students must find it very hard to continue with their studies. It must be hard for some of them to ask for help too.

@ida123 It could make a big difference to them even if it is having clothes or shoes.

@JudyEv Yes, even that things are so simple, she'll be motivated to study harder because she knows someone is willing to help her.

In my country, a prominent percentage of the population lives below poverty line. It is an every day affair over here to come across this kind of incidence and trust me these poor students come out to be the most studious and hard working compared to those whose parents are quite well being. We have house maids here , and I have donated many times food, money, old clothes of mine to her daughter and trust me I really appreciate people engaging in this kind of act.

As much as possible, we have to help others who need our help without thinking that they will help us in return, helping others is good.

Poverty is not a hindrance for students who are willing to sacrifice just for their good future.

That is true, their life status, their weapon to fulfill their dreams and I have known many of them who fulfilled it, they even help others to make those dreams come true.

I help her, anyway that amount is not too much. And here in our country, we have many poor but deserving students and they were granted a scholarship by the government but they must maintain their grades until they finished their studies.

We have students where I work who have been kicked out of home and can't claim benefits. I admire them for wanting to keep on with their education so they can better themselves and get out of the cycle of life so as not to repeat their parents mistakes.

I know, your government will help you with this kind of situation like here in our country, the government does something but not enough for them.
