esterday, i joined the Walk for a Cause at my work station. The cause was to raise funds to finance programs and activities for the out-of-school youths of the town i am assigned with. The out-of-school-youths mirror an ugly reality of poverty in my workplace and worldwide. They are the underprivileged sectors of the society who are victims of poverty and victims of the inefficiencies of the government to resolve poverty. When they are supposed to be in school along with their peers, they are in the streets earning a living to help their parents feed the other siblings. At a tender age, they are experiencing the struggles and pains of life instead of playing with their peers. They engage in child labor. Some of them, are without guidance of parents and they go to the streets and become vagabonds. Later, you would expect them to be the next hardened criminals in the town. What a sickening thought, but it is true. The pangs of proverty victimize these youths and that's why it is a cause of concern of the government. I am happy to know, upon inquiry today, that a substantial amount was raised yesterday. This amount will augment the finances for priority programs geared towards the upliftment of life of these out- of- school youths.
