NUG making effort to reduce poverty in Afghanistan
 Afghanistan government officials have informed of efforts to reduce poverty in Afghanistan, saying that a high council on reduction of poverty has kicked off its work under the chairmanship of President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani.
The decision has been made amid increasing of poverty in the country where a large number of people have been displaced from their homes due to increasing war and insecurities in the country.
The displaced families who are living in a worse economic condition in Kabul told The Kabul Times correspondent that they had nothing to eat, asking the government and international welfare organizations for urgent assistance.
Delawar Shah, who has been displaced with his family from Achin district of Nangarhar and now living in Kabul says there is no work in Kabul, so we are facing with various problems as we are now living under tent in an open air and the weather is getting colder day by day. He asked the government to provide security in his home district so they can go back and live in their home.
Shahida, another member of a displaced family said, “Today injustice is ruling on the country where there is a considerable distance between rich and poor. Those who are rich should help with poor as they are living in bad economical situation.”
In each poor family, one or two members are mentally sick due to the fact they are unemployed or suffering poor economical situation, she added.
But, what are the main causes of increasing poverty and how to address the situation in the country? Ustad Masoud, a Kabul University lecturer answered the question and said, “The main reasons of increasing poverty in our country are irregular process of investment, lack of access of the people to social and learning services, increasing insecurities, lack of proper awareness from strengthening of agriculture and others.”
To address the situation, the government should strengthen agricultural system as most of Afghan people are engaged in agriculture. Moreover, security and stability in the country can help the people improve their living condition.  He also suggested that the government should have proper plans for strengthening economic system and task economic-related organs to further work in improvement of economic situation in particular agriculture and propose particular plans and programs for reduction of poverty in the country so problems of poor people could be addressed.
Meanwhile, a deputy spokesperson to presidential office Najib Azad has informed of a new decision of President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani in connection with kicking off a program for reduction of poverty in the country, saying that in his early step the country’s President has tasked ministries of economy, social affairs and central statistics authority to particularize poverty rate in the country. He added that later on causes of poverty would be reviewed and based on a practical mechanism, practical steps would taken for reduction of poverty in the country. 
National unity government has kicked off the steps after ministry of economy and World Bank by releasing a joint report recently have said that 39 % of Afghanistan people were living in weak economic situation. The report added that more than 1.3 million Afghans were not able to maintain food for their families. The report has also mentioned that the withdrawal of nearly 100,000 foreign troops from Afghanistan, decreasing of international aids to Afghanistan and stoppage of most development projects in the country were the main causes of increasing poverty in Afghanistan.

My friend and I went camping the other day. It was a horrible experience, as he wouldn't let me sleep all night. He kept talking about random stuff and cried about his anxiety. I totally told him to <a href=http://www.tobefast.com/ebay/over-the-counter-valium>Contact</a> and deal with it.
