                    [Title] => Why is there too much poverty in a "rich" country?

How can we make the poor understand that, while the Philippines grew by 7.2 percent in 2013, poverty incidence has grown, literacy rate has gone down and the number of jobless, homeless and hopeless citizens is increasing in a scale that is alarming?
