Harry, here are two answers. There are many more.

Teach them to take care of their needs.
Help them find opportunities for employment.

Give them hope...and belief in themselves. Let them know that they are here to overcome their perceived limitations and challenges. That they have the power to create the life that they want.

Let them know that their poverty is not a sign of inadequacy or lack of worth. It is just a lesson and an experience. Soon, there will be different lessons and experiences, and wealth can be one of them if they so choose.

Changing one's situation always starts with the belief in their minds that change *can* and *will* happen. It triggers a domino effect of action. They will believe that they have control over their own lack and suddenly they will begin to see the opportunities and go for them instead of feeling that all is lost and nothing is worth the effort.

Theirs is poverty of self-esteem (unless they choose poverty out of acetic or religious values).

Give them power through belief in themselves. But of course, always give money to take care of their immediate physical needs. No one can think straight when he is ravenously hungry or cold.

Provide as much training and support as possible. As long as they can get to a library, they can take free online classes, learn new skills, and become self sufficient. It takes time and support and encouragement.

To Harry 124,

Important to know what Harry considers poverty?A zillionnaire
can be poor if his heart is not filled with love for other humans
I am retired ,have a car dating 1997,buy most of my clothing in
second hand clothing store. You have no idea of the beautiful stuff that I paid $1 or $2.
For a year ,I went to the only food counter we have around here,
food given was rotten .Made spaguetti sauce for a year.
The poor people you speak of, do they smoke?In Canada a pack of cigarettes can cost you up to $10.,do these people drink beer ?
I have not smoked or drank for 35 years now.

I worked 48 years ,all i got is my old age pension.And a great self-esteem,I am a rich man.

So please ,tell us your solutions.

Do not give food to whom is hungry,show him how to grow food.(after feeding him )

To Yvonnie,

How do you give self esteem to someone?Not through giving him books food will do for awhile.If we could speak face to face ,
I would tell you the life of Normand Joly/loong.No one ever helped me,I helped myself.Sure some people cannot do it by themselves,so what do you do.Saying a phrase like,Give them self
esteem.is easy to say but mutch harder to make it happen.

With friendship

You're right, loongdragon.

"Self" esteem must come from the self.

A psychologist told me that to gain self-esteem, a person needs to do or believe something that makes him feel good about himself.

Maybe we can help those poor in self-esteem to recognize the value in themselves. Then, when they see that they have value, they act upon that. And thus, the stone is set in motion.

dear Lori dreams,

Between good intentions,and being able to create that in millions of people is an astonishing project.I wish I had that power.I don't .We can only,I beleive, do it one case at the time.

With respect

Yes, loongdragon. One person, one heart, one mind, one soul, one life at a time. Beginning with our own.

But if we all do this, a billion points of light will sparkle brightly.

It starts with the belief that this can be done. That this *will* be done. I believe. And so my own light is beginning to flicker on...

Teach them self-responsibility and self-discipline. Help them find a job with which they can support themselves. Help them get any help they may need with addictions or other mental health problems.

To me the best way to help the poor is to give them a hand up rather than a hand out. Showing heart felt humility and sincerity in assisting those in need is the best way to get their attention in getting them to want to do things for themselves rather than have someone else do it for them. It also makes them aware that someone really does care about them.

Try to make them self supportive rather helping them with cash.Try to educate and inspire them and help them find opportunities for employment.

The society has changed a lot, when I'm on the street, there are many beggers. When I see them, I feel sympathy for them, but actually, they are professional beggers.

Sad but true. At first, after I read your post, I was going to ask how to tell the difference between a person in need and a professional beggar. But then, I realized that some of these "professional" beggars beg because they honestly are incapable of securing and holding down a job.

There are many people who are unemployable for a variety of reasons that we cannot see just by looking at them.

For this reason, I shall continue to give hand-outs to those who ask. I will try my best not to be concerned if they are deceiving or tricking me. I hope each hand-out gives them the opportunity to see that people are genuinely caring, and they can choose to do a good thing with the kindness and money.

Helping poor people is a great incentive but giving them the tools they need to get out of poverty is even better. The idea of being poor is based on the fact far too many people are not able to access services that are out there.
