Children and Poverty
What APPCO Believes About Child Poverty
While an adult may become poor temporarily, falling into poverty in childhood can last a lifetime, because rarely does a child get a second chance to learn and grow healthy.As such, measuring child poverty needs to rather focus on whether children face deprivations of a range of their rights such as health, education, nutrition, participation, and protection from harm, exploitation, and discrimination.
