STEP 3: WE SHARE - STEP 4: WE REFLECT
Students will reflect upon the fact poverty has many dimensions, but its causes include unemployment, social exclusion, and high vulnerability of certain population to disasters, diseases and other phenomena which prevent them from being productive. "overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life. While poverty persists, there is no true freedom." Nelson Mandela
(I invite you to ask your child constantly to draw, write, talk, do little research about the above-mentioned topics or simply talk what she/he has learned at school)
