The Route of Dignity and Value: from nothing to real success

By Danel Homméus on June 25, 2013 in Case Study


“The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.” – B.B. King 

Case study:

“How would you answer a child from a poor family who states that education is a waste of time since jobs are scarce and many educated people are unemployed?”

To better answer this question that I’m theoretically asked by a child, I will emphasize the importance of education and the reason why the child can’t get out of the circle of poverty without one of the greatest assets there is education.

1-The importance of education

There is a well-known quote in Haiti that says: “if you’re poor, ugly and silly (in this context not educated), you’re good for evil.”

So, my child, your second chance (after still being alive) in spite of your poverty is to educate yourself. Sure, the path is long but makes it a journey instead of a destination and you’ll be amazed.

2-Education can break the circle of poverty

My child, I’m sorry to be the one to tell you so directly, but I need to say it like it is: a good and well-structured education is a lifetime asset. Being educated won’t only help you break the circle of poverty, but you’ll be proud of yourself after earning a degree and becoming an expert in a field you’re passionate about, about to climb the social ladder. Bear in mind that no matter what you’ve been through, if you know what you want from your education, people worldwide will search for your expertise. At this point, you’ll be creating jobs instead of searching for them. It’s a positive mindset and the key to success.

Imagine that you’ve been asked the same question. How would you answer? What would be your advice to this child?

Please put it in the box below.
