Rural Poverty in Africa and Who Belongs to it Rural poverty is one of the most devastating conditions of this world. Thousands die each year of starvation because families cannot afford food. Most of the poor people come from rural areas. “Three quarters of the world, or 1.2 billion extremely poor people, live and work in rural areas, aid to agriculture, their main source of income, has fallen by two thirds “(Rural Poverty Report). There are many facts about rural poverty that are unknown by most. The main part of rural poverty that will be discussed is rural poverty in Africa, especially in women. Some of the things that people don’t know are: who is affected by rural poverty, what gender is poverty related to, how it is created, the causes of deepening the poverty in Africa, what has been done to stop it, what are some of the lessons learned for the future. The gender that is most connected to rural poverty is clearly women. The rural women most likely suffer more than the men. “Single women with children are more likely to be living in poverty, as reflected by their high poverty rates in both rural and urban places” (Gender and Rural Poverty). Women don’t have as much authority as men do in most countries of the world.
