A crash course in changing the world.

England has one of the worst rates of child poverty in the
industrialised world: more than one in four children live in poverty.
That's over 3 million children. Considering that the 2001 national
census recorded 49,138,831 as the total population and the total
population of children aged 0-14 years old was 9277814. This means that
about 6277814 childeren are not living in poverty, that may seem a lot
but when you see the number 3000000 (3 million you realise the scale of
the problem. 3 million is a big number.
Those statistics and facts to me seem to be a huge challenge towards food security.
Imagine this, Your dad was your only parent that worked and he has been laid off from his Job. You have 3 brothers and two sisters, that is a lot of mouths to feed considering an average meal per person costs around about £2.00 (estimate) This would cost £16 for the wh*** family to eat one meal. Your family were bareley scraping by when your dad was working, imagine how hard it will be to survive with no money coming in.


England has one of the worst rates of child poverty in the industrialised world: more than one in four children live in poverty. That's over 3 million children.

Many low-income families struggle to pay for basic necessities such as adequate heating and nutritious food. Poverty also causes social exclusion and limited access to local services such as leisure

The government has promised to halve poverty by 2010 and end it by 2020.

We monitor the government's progress and we've found it is nowhere near meeting its targets.

We've been lobbying the government to make seasonal cash grants to low-income families. These would help them meet particularly high costs in winter, such as
fuel and warm clothes. Partly as a result of our campaign, 100 MPs
signed an early day motion to introduce seasonal grants.

Many children in England are missing out on a good-quality education. Some 9,000 are permanently excluded from school each year. An additional 10,000 are simply not getting an education.

England has one of the worst rates of child poverty in the industrialised world: more than one in four children live in poverty. That's over 3 million children. Almost one in ten live in severe
. This is unacceptable and we're determined to change it.

Save the Children in England

We've campaigned for the rights of children in England for over 80 years. Our work today is focused on the most deprived communities in four regions: London, the Midlands, the North West, and the North East.
We want long-term change for some of the most vulnerable children across
the country: those growing up in poverty; those missing out on a good
quality education; those who have come to England to seek refuge and

Children and young people take an active part in all our work. We consult with them to find out about their experiences and ideas for tackling the problems they face. We help them develop these ideas and
put them into practice. And we help them present their views to people
in power, so they can play a part in bringing about lasting changes.

(save the childeren) one of the many ways people are trying to tackle uk poverty.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
