Causes Of Poverty In Pakistan

Pakistan is the 6th largest country in the world, with a population of close to 170 million people. In this large country, the rural population dominates, with almost 71 percent living in rural areas. Very few people know that in Pakistan, 45% of the total population lives below the poverty line.

The causes of poverty in Pakistan are the social and economic disadvantages that prevent people from having a satisfying life, in particular a lack of income, education and skills, poor health, and sanitation. 


Poverty In Pakistan Caused By Corruption

In Pakistan, poverty is a problem that cannot be solved without corruption. It is obvious when you visit a rural area of Pakistan to see the poor living conditions they live in. Corruption has caused this poverty and can lead to even more poverty if it isn’t dealt with.

Poor people in Pakistan are suffering. They are not healthy enough to work and don’t have enough money to buy food. We can help them by donating money or our time. Poverty is a problem in Pakistan that has been caused by corruption and poor living conditions. Corruption is a growing problem in the government.

This causes thieves to steal money from their countries which keeps the poor from getting jobs and gaining food and clothing. All of this leads the poor to beg on street corners for money so that they can eat and live.

There are many poor families who do not have homes so must live near factories, which may be very bad for their health because of the polluted air that comes out of the factories.

There are many hazards on streets where the poor have no other option but to go walking around. But due to being poor, very few people go to school in order to get a job.

Causes Of Poverty In Pakistan


Poverty In Pakistan Caused By Lack Of Good Jobs

While a large majority of Pakistan’s population has adapted to poverty, the Lack of good jobs and poor educational system has left vast segments of the population with little hope for a better life. Only about 5% of Pakistani families, who are slightly better off economically, can afford higher education for their children.

Pakistan has made considerable economic progress in recent years, but the benefits of this growth have largely bypassed the poorest. More than two-fifths of the population—60 million people—are poor by global standards, while one-quarter of children under five are stunted, and nearly one-third are underweight.

A lack of good jobs is a key driver of poverty and deprivation, as fewer than one in five jobs created in recent years are formal, lasting, or regular.

Causes of poverty in Pakistan are important to know so that we can control them.


Poverty In Pakistan Caused By Weather/Climate Change

Climate change has caused an increase in violent weather events around the world, including Pakistan. This has increased poverty rates in Pakistan, which has resulted in a lack of education, health issues, and lowered living standards.

As a result of the most recent climate change, over 69% of Pakistanis live below the poverty line. Prolonged droughts and more frequent violent floods are in part because of poorly planned development and Lack of proper infrastructure. Further, flooding causes contaminated floodwater to seep into drinking water supplies, leaving citizens without clean water.

In order to save our Pakistan for future generations we need to reduce the causes of Poverty in Pakistan.


Poverty In Pakistan Caused By Social Injustice

Poverty is caused by social injustice, which leads to unequal distribution of wealth. A country that is underdeveloped leads to a high rate of poverty. Many people die before their time due to poverty.

Poverty in Pakistan is one of the factors of social injustice. It refers to the state when the access to resources and decision-making power is unequally distributed among the members of society.

Poverty involves a Lack of basic needs due to scarcity of resources. The distribution of income, wealth, and access to essential goods and services is uneven in an undeveloped country like Pakistan.

The majority of the population lives on less than $2/day. The poverty line is identified differently as per countries, human development index, type of families, and also with respect to consumption expenditure or income measure. In Pakistan, Poverty is spread all over because accessibility, quality, and quantity of resources are extremely low for a vast majority of the population.


Poverty In Pakistan Caused By Lack Of Food And Water

Poverty causes immense suffering to the world’s population. Often times whether or not a family has enough food and water is dependent upon the environment it lives in. It is difficult to eliminate a situation if we aren’t aware of it.

The current level of poverty in Pakistan is primarily caused by the Lack of food and water that are required for survival. Since more than forty percent of Pakistan’s population is made up of youth and teenagers, the government has created a strategy to promote specific types of incentives for parents who encourage their children to receive an education.


Poverty In Pakistan Caused By A Lack Of Government Support

In the socio-economic scenario of Pakistan, Poverty is a big problem as 32.8% population of the country lives below the poverty line. This poverty leads to many problems such as unemployment, illiteracy, low salaries, and a slow growth rate of GDP.

Poverty has many causes, but in Pakistan, the causes are Lack of government support, Lack of education, and Lack of employment opportunities. This poverty makes it hard for these people to find food.

They have to go to the city to look for a job. They get a little income, and they can come back with the food they need to eat. Poverty brings difficulty in all aspects of life because people can’t get what they want.

The poor don’t even have enough money to feed a child or to buy something he needs for even starting his school day like uniforms or teacher’s fees or just transportation fees to get him to the school.


Poverty In Pakistan Caused By Inequality

The defining characteristic of poverty is a lack of choices and opportunities. Our goal is to empower the poor to help themselves. In Pakistan, where we work, 62% of the population lives in poverty.

Inequality is the key driver of poverty—it traps individuals and families in a difficult economic situation, deprives them of opportunities, and ensures that they remain poor.

Poor people in Pakistan are still suffering from inequality, especially in the rural areas.

Poverty in Pakistan has the scope of being the largest in the world, with approximately 35% of its population living below the poverty line, 60% of Pakistani’s live below 75% relative poverty, and 40% living on less than $1.25 a day.

This is also a function of high rural population density, making poverty more visible but far from exclusive to rural areas. Inequalities in Pakistan are also expressed in disparities in regional development between men and women.


Poverty In Pakistan Caused By Lack Of Education

Pakistan suffers from a lack of education, low life expectancy, and high infant mortality. The majority of Pakistanis live in rural areas with limited resources. More about poverty in Pakistan can be found on Wikipedia.

Millions of children in Pakistan are growing up on the brink of famine. If you believe that no child should be born into poverty, then join us to fight this cause.

We provide government-certified and local NGO-approved schools in nearby rural areas. These schools help millions of children to get an education, so they become literate and are able to take care of themselves and their families.
