Abstract | Full Text

Objectives The purpose of education is to raise public awareness of the problems arising, among others, from the development of the modern world. The present article will refer to the current questions related to the phenomenon of poverty and the ways in which it can be limited. Educational tools may provide the means of shaping the attitudes of policy makers who implement global policies aimed at eradicating poverty. Material and methods analysis and synthesis. ONZ reports. Results The last two decades have been a period when hundreds of millions of people have come out of extreme poverty. It is important to note that this primarily refers to children, young women and young men who play a key role in the process of change that is taking place to eliminate the phenomenon of poverty in the world. Educated people, aware of their capabilities and potential, can take action to build a better, sustainable and peaceful world. Social inclusion is also important for the improvement of welfare. Women and girls must have equal access to high quality education, economic resources and political participation. They must have equal opportunities with men and boys in terms of employment opportunities, leadership and decision-making at all levels. Conclusions Access to education and its quality undoubtedly play a key role in eradicating poverty in developing countries. The benefits of education are long-term and are passed on generations to come. It is important to remember, however, that the phenomenon of poverty is a complex issue, and that the sole education of society may prove insufficient. It is also important to ensure universal health protection, access to high quality health care, addressing income inequality and access to natural resources.
