THE POVERTY GHOST: Our country without poverty and hunger

By: Sara and Israel, aged 12

In a district, poverty was reigning… and little James, who had lots of food, was watching the poor and didn't want to share anything with them.

Suddenly, the poverty ghost appeared and pushed little James and all his food and money into the drains. He had no food for days or even months and was dying of hunger.

Little James started to understand the poor, became their friend and they formed a group. Together they chased the poverty ghost and destroyed it with jobs, education, health, responsibility, solidarity, determination and lots of love.

That's when they started sharing, respecting each other and treating everybody well, especially children and youngsters.

And from that day onwards, they lived in a better world, without poverty or hunger.
