THE POLITICS OF POVERTY


                                    THE CHILD OF THE POOR   


In the Caribbean there is a  politician who  cares about education. The cool hills of ST. Andrew over looking Jamaica’s capital have given rise to this rear phenomenon.

A willingness to but re-election at risk  for the sake of education is not the type of action some people have come to expect  of Politicians .He will be spending most of his Constituency Development fund on education. There  is a feeling that Most others use their CDF for hand outs or should I say to help their re-election bid.


Some are worried that these actions by the young Politician could mean one less seat in Parliament . They may ask ,Do you really want to give up power for the sake of educating  the children of the poor? This young man seems to have knots in his brains ,could he really be putting people first?


There is some one willing to put  up a fight to break the Vicious Cycle Of  Poverty. Feeding the belly of the poor is far different from attacking the known cause of poverty. Education is the key to the Island’s development.

This is a good fight which must be won .“With faith, strength  and a good cause David will always defeat Goliath”-H. I. M.
