[1] Poverty refers to the lack of basic human needs like food, drinks, medicine and many other crucial supplies needed to keep one alive and healthy. A great number of African countries suffer from this phenomenon. They repeatedly call the world for urgent help to save them from this hazardous humanitarian disaster. [2] Despite having copious natural resources and vast agricultural land along with a perfect weather, African countries still suffer from poverty. It threatens the life of countless African citizens every year. Many inhabitants catch health diseases because of drinking unsafe water, which usually comes from mixing sewage and drinking water supplies. Other dangerous diseases such as AIDS, Ebola, Malaria … to name a few, are far more problematic. [3] There are several causes to the everlasting issue of poverty in Africa. The major reason is instability in many countries. This issue takes the form of civil wars, armed conflicts, political affiliations and social conflict. Africa is well known for ongoing conflicts between its people. As a result, destruction is always inflicted not only on citizens but also on property and land. African citizens with fair financial abilities prefer to emigrate to European countries to look for peace and security for themselves and their families. That’s why the rate of immigration is shockingly increasing every year. [4] Other causes of poverty include natural disasters like volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, floods, tsunami …etc which ruins the stability of farmers and employees economically, agriculturally and commercially. In addition, other demographic factors contribute negatively to the prevalence of poverty in Africa. For example, some tribesmen easily give birth to lots of children because they don’t have access to contraceptives and programs of motherhood education. Parents don’t have high paying jobs. Consequently, their kids suffer from malnutrition, serenity and lack of medical care. [5] Researches show that for Africa to eliminate the issue of poverty on the long term, Africans should maintain sustainable agriculture as well as trade and industry activities. Moreover, they should invest in their natural resources as many countries contain the most valuable minerals. However, many sociologists agree that the first step towards a better life in Africa is to fight the deeply rooted corruption in their political and economic systems.
