Advantages and disadvantages of child support grant.

I’ve decided to make a post about child support grant. This post will focus on the advantages and disadvantages of Child support grant. Child support grant is paid by the government to parents who can’t afford to support their children as a result of unemployment or poverty. The grant is normally earned by young mothers who fall pregnant at an early age.

Advantages

As I said in the intro, the first advantage is that some mothers who cannot afford to support their children as a result of unemployment and poverty can be able to support their children. The grant is very crucial to the well-being of their children.
The second advantage is that it assists single mothers who are abandoned by fathers of their children as we all know that there are irresponsible men out there who don’t want to support their children.
The final advantage is the reduction of the number of babies who are abandoned and killed by their parents. Many mothers end up committing infanticide because of poverty; not wanting to take responsibility and just evil. The grant could reduce the infanticide rate.

Disadvantages

The first disadvantage is that it fuels teenage pregnancy. You might have noticed that teenage pregnancy has increased dramatically in many countries due to social grant. You won’t believe that many teenagers don’t take the responsibility of abstaining from sex or having protected sex because they rely on the government to assist them if they fall pregnant.
The second disadvantage is that it might increase the spread of STDs since the more likely the teenagers fall pregnant the more likely they are to be infected with STD.
The third disadvantage is the increment of government spending since the government has to spend millions on child support grant because of irresponsible people who have unplanned babies.
The final disadvantage is overpopulation since the more number of babies are born the more the population increases. Overpopulation, not a good thing.

It seems as if there are more disadvantages than advantages of child support grant. In many countries, teenage pregnancy was not a serious problem until the implementation of child support grant. But does this mean that child support grant must be banned? This hard to decide. What do you think?

Why Africa is the poorest countinent?

Many people wonder why Africa is the poorest continent in the world. Africa is rich in resources but it is the poorest continent in the world. Probably, you have noticed that Africa contains the poorest countries despite the fact that developed countries such as USA donate millions of dollars to Africa. Other people from western countries don’t even know that Africa is a continent. They think it’s just a huge poor country. Most people in Africa live under poverty line and die because of famine and diseases caused by undernourishment. Below are the reasons for poverty in Africa.

1. colonization
Many African countries were colonized by many European countries in order to take over it and steal resources. Those European countries accumulated wealth by stealing African resources. This is one of the biggest reasons why Africa is the poorest country.

2. Corruption
Most Africa politicians are very corrupt, arrogant and egocentric. The only thing they do is serve their own bellies instead of serving their people, especially the poor. The duty of politicians is to serve their countries not themselves. Their actions pressurize innocent politicians and retard development in Africa. Many people from African poorest countries die as a result of famine and undernourishment as I mentioned before. I saw a woman from Swaziland on TV eating cow dung because of hunger. She ate it because she had nothing to eat and had to take her medicine. It is such a shame that a birthplace of human race has become a world’s poorest continent as a result of greedy people.

3. Lack of progress in scientific knowledge
Another reason why Africa is the poorest continent is that Africans didn’t manage to progress in scientific knowledge like Europeans and Asians did. There is no famous African scientist who won a Nobel prize. Lack of scientific knowledge in Africa makes it hard for Africa to develop. We all know that some Europeans colonized many African countries but we can’t deny the fact that almost all Africa did not have an advanced civilization before Europeans came.

4. Lack of technologically advanced machinery
Most African countries don’t have advanced machinery to process resources into final goods. Every time they have to export their resources to other countries and import final goods from those countries. This doesn’t boost economies of African countries but it boosts economies of other countries. More employment opportunities are created in other countries instead of African countries and more income (GDP) is earned by those countries instead of African countries.

In the past we could blame colonizers. Now we have to blame those greedy corrupt egocentric African politicians because they are responsible for making Africa poor. They worsen poverty in Africa instead of fighting it.
