Storyboard Text

  • School fees for international schools tend to be significantly higher than mainstream schools. International schools tend to have more camps and overseas trips which can add a major financial burden. International schools tend to put more emphasis on inquiry-based learning. This means that a child will be learning through questioning and doing rather than being 'taught'. However, in local schools, the majority rely heavily on textbooks for all subjects. So, if you are a child who is poor, you would rather go to local schools because the prices are much lower and in government schools, you do not need to pay anything because the government pays for you.
  • Around 200,000 people live in cage homes, coffin homes or on rooftops.More than 1600 people live on the streets and over 2 million people live in public housing. Guess what, they barely even have anything in their homes because it is so cramped. An average coffin home is only 3ft x 6ft home, which is worth 240 pounds, is equivalent to a large mattress so that is a very tight place to live in. 
  • Come on! Are you kidding me?! This room sucks and it doesn't even have a TV. OMG, how am I meant to survive here?!
  • Low-income families only spend 46% of their money on food. Usually 30-40 dollars worth of food per day. The World Health Organisation recommends that an adult has at least 400g of fruit and vegetables each day to maintain a balanced diet. However, most food banks only provide rice, noodles, milk powder and canned food, which are only good enough to provide temporary assistance for those who have immediate difficulties coping with basic food needs. So if people have low income and only spend 30-40 dollars per day, how on earth will they get enough nutrition for the rest of their life. I think that us, people with enough money to afford good nutritious food, should not waste our food and donate to those who are poor so they can be healthy have the right diet.
  • First of all, what does affluenza mean? Well, affluenza basically means the disease of the wealthy people, not all, but some. An example would be that if you bought a present you consider to be good quality and expensive to a person who has affluenza, the person would take it for granted. Because he might be really rich so he would think that the present that you gave him is bad, not as good as he thought, and perhaps might throw it away. 
  • Another thing about the children of rich parents, is that they are put under so much pressure to succeed they are at an increased risk of suffering of mental illness, a study has claimed. Scientists found that children from homes with an annual income of more than £100,000 a-year were suffering anxiety and depression at twice the normal rate of their less well off peers. Researchers found issues such as eating disorders, drug abuse, neuroses and self harming were soaring among wealthy teenagers.
  •  Approximately 1.2 billion people in the world live in extreme poverty (less than one dollar per day). Poverty then creates ill-health because it forces people to live in environments that make them sick, without decent shelter, clean water or adequate sanitation. 17 million people die of diseases that we could cure, and every 3.6 seconds a child dies from starvation and living without clean water. Health is a very sad issue in poverty because it tells us that we aren't doing as much as we can to help those people who are in need.
