  Today while working with the students, I was just thinking whether the education would be able to remove the miseries and poverty of their families. Immediately a question arose in my mind, what if some of the children do not complete their education or are compelled to leave in between due to any reasons? Then I started thinking and thinking and after some time, appeared to reach some conclusion and promised myself to assist these less affluent children to complete their education so that they could break this vicious circle.
 
Poverty as a cause leads to illiteracy and also illiteracy generates property in its turn. As such it is apt to say – poverty is not only a cause to illiteracy but also poverty is an effect of illiteracy.  
 
It is a vicious circle that goes hand in hand. We can understand this problem in this way.  Circumstances of poverty in family affects education of one’s family members in many ways. It is just possible that a student, due to poverty will not get higher education as compared with the children of more well off  people in the society and his lower education would compel him to do menial jobs which would be less rewarding leaving him and his family again in poverty. This example shows that though due to poverty a student could not get higher education. As such poverty is the cause of illiteracy. Also due to his lower education, he could not become able to earn lot for himself and his family which has left the family in poverty.  As such while imparting education it is also important factor that the children receive complete education in the field which they opt for so that in future this vicious circle could be broken.  
 
It appears to be true within the context of entire world that unless and until these children do not receive complete education, they would not be able to break this vicious circle and let us join our hands to assist these innocent children and make this beautiful planet poverty and illiteracy free.
