Dalia Banks, a student in London, wrote a blog post on Tuesday in which she warned that “the world’s poorest are facing an economic crisis of poverty, with no clear solutions”.
“As a young woman of color, I know this is an epidemic of poverty,” Banks said.
“I know it’s not just a matter of being poor in a country where I live.
It’s a matter that affects all of us.”
Banks said that a study published in September showed that the global poverty rate was at its highest since World War II.
She added that while there are some “good policies” in place, they were “too often ignored or undermined by the very people who should be leading the charge”.
The University of Oxford professor said that her experiences had made her more aware of the inequality that existed in many parts of the world.
“We’re seeing people who are living in poverty and in poverty-stricken cities, but I’ve never seen a whole lot of discussion around poverty,” she said.
“So I think I’m starting to see the way in which there’s a lot of neglect of this problem.”
She added: “We’re still in a period where people are living under this poverty, but not as much as they should be.”
There’s a very unequal distribution of wealth in the world and we’re really not talking about wealth and income anymore.
“Banking, a 24-year-old student at the University of London, said that the world’s poor were facing an “economic crisis of parenthood”.
Banks, who is a campaigner for the Global Childcare Network, said the global “poverty gap” was one of the main factors in the “unmet need” for childcare services.”
Poverty in many ways is a social and economic barrier that is keeping women of colour, immigrants, women of color and LGBTQ people out of the workforce,” she wrote.”
This is also impacting on children and youth, who are less likely to be able to access quality, affordable childcare.
“Billington National Bank also published a statement, saying: “As we continue to monitor developments in the global economy and are concerned about the impact on the global childcare market, we remain committed to supporting the best childcare systems in the region.
“While we do not have specific plans to invest in childcare facilities at this time, we will work closely with stakeholders, and with our global network, to better align our investment strategy with our long-term strategy to help our global workforce reach the highest standards.”
“We are working to provide the best possible childcare experience for our clients, staff and community members,” the bank said.
“We have already seen a significant reduction in the number of children who are unable to access childcare in some of our centres, and we are continuing to work with our partners to ensure this does not happen again.”
