Poverty and Social Justice

Social Justice is the idea of creating a society or institution that understands, values, and recognizes the dignity of every human being. Our purpose as members of a certain community is to promote this social justice in our everyday lives. However, there are some obstacles that prevent us from doing so, and that is poverty.

A lot of poor people are suffering due to the effects of poverty. Through social justice, I see now that the poor are poor because of the lack of opportunity and needs; nevertheless, they are rich in spirit and heart. They have what it takes to exceed and to fight back against poverty. We too should help the poor in our own little ways, and thus have a community that help one another.
