There are currently 3.7 million children living in poverty in the UK. That’s over a quarter of all children. 1.7 million of these children are living in severe poverty. In the UK, 63% of children living in poverty are in a family where someone works.
The statistics are shockingly higher in Brazil with 11.5 million children aged between 0 - 6 living in poverty in 2006. This figure has steadily increased.
There were also 4.2 million children aged 15 – 17 living in poverty in the same year.
Poverty affects every area of a child's development - social, educational and personal.
