We think it’s great because it shows us how much poverty there is in the world and we were very surprised that only 12 people have a computer and only 3 have an internet connection. Also 14 can’t read. We think its very important to help these people because poverty is a very bad thing. If you keep your food in a refrigerator, your clothes in a closet, sleep in your bed and have a roof over your head then your richer than 75% of the worlds entire population.

Surprised that 9 are disabled (thought it would be less) and 43 live without basic sanitation (considering 47 live in urban areas – that means that only 10 non-urban people have basic sanitation). Not surprised that 6 people control 59% of the wealth. Only 7 people educated at a secondary level is very concerning, as is the fact that only 3 have access to the Internet.
