The future of the World's needy will be determined by the group's resilience to the inevitable battles ahead.
From emerging battles as a result of the effects of climate change, to the diminishing of rights and respect under the ambitions of autocrats and the far right and to a waning in empathy to humanity, the world's needy will be challenged to uplift their general beings in the coming years.
However, the needy will not be able to better their socio-economic and political conditions until they are successful in according an equatable share in the world's wealth. To this end, the group must insist upon better education for both men and women and an un-yielding demand that all girls have the opportunity to full education offered boys. Moreover, equal pay for equal work for both men and women must become the norm.
The numbers of the world's needy could be significantly reduced once there is equality to education and equal pay for the same work. Despite the impediments ahead, considerable opportunities exist to reducing the rolls of the world's needy.
