Storyboard Text

  • Did you know nowadays many people are migrating from rural to urban areas in search of better jobs, and a better life
  • How interesting?!
  • Rural push factors (such as low wages) and urban pull factors (such as better jobs) cause rural to urban migration.
  • There are many positive and negative effects of the migration from rural areas
  • For real?! Like what?
  • The positive effects are: The migrants are able to send money home. With more money from the urban workers, school fees may be paid or livestock bought.
  • The negative effects are: It is often the young males who move - the remaining family may be less physically able to carry out heavy tasks. With the absence of the young males, children may have to work on the farm, rather than going to school.
  • The rate of natural increase is high in many areas. This puts pressure on the food supply. This leads to malnutrition and starvation. It also encourages rural to urban migration.
  • To improve are economy we need to: encourage income generation in rural areas. Increase food production. Improve the standard of rural living. We also need to improve are communication to rural areas so that we can help them with products and they can help provide us with stuff!
