With just $0.05 a day, this Blueprint will make us strong, firm warriors in the battle to end poverty-->

Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Poverty Rates In Africa Decline

Africans Report Decline in Poverty - allAfrica.com
A decade of growth in Africa finally seems to have delivered "broad-based reductions in poverty", with Africans in 22 of 33 countries reporting an improvement in their access to basic necessities over the last three years, say the authors of a new report.
In the report, published in Addis Ababa on Thursday, Afrobarometer, the continent-wide public opinion research group, says fewer people are going without enough food, clean water, medical care, fuel for cooking and cash income.
The report makes clear that poverty levels are still high. Afrobarometer's latest survey in 35 countries shows that three in four people went without a cash income at least once or twice in the year prior to being questioned. Nearly half said the same about medical care, clean water, food and cooking fuel.
The new survey says consistent declines in poverty have occurred in Zambia and Ghana, and also in Cape Verde, which with Egypt has seen "very substantial reductions." But it reports "sustained increases" in poverty in Madagascar and Liberia, with the steepest increases being in Mozambique, Benin and Liberia.
