On October, according to the UN calendar, there is celebrated International day for the eradication of poverty. Youth Center members of Ozurgeti held discussion at the café ,,Rvas+1’’ about causes of poverty and possible ways to solve the problem.
At the meeting, participants had the possibility to get to know to the brochure ,,Stories’’ prepared by Nini Shavishvili. Characters of the stories written by Nini experience the same problem: poverty. The author read some stories from the brochure for the attendants.
Youth people who attended the event remembered different stories regarding people who live in poverty. They discussed the difficulties of economically vulnerable families and the consequence of their condition, violated rights of the children who live under poverty, stereotypical attitudes towards them as well as facts of violence against them. Young people stated that it is important that every citizen has an awareness of their own social responsibility and care about empowering families which have economical problems. These actions will help our country to overcome poverty.
