Blame poverty

Re: Seeking solutions to child vendors 

Looking at the problem of street vendors, the cause is poverty. 

If the government introduced a payment scheme of some sort to accommodate these families, using taxpayers’ money, the problem might not be there. 

Samoa gets more than enough aid from different countries. 

Why not help the people of Samoa get educated or trained for a job and pay x amount of dollars for their attendance? 

Surely that would remove child vendors. 

Possibly make school fees abolished so every child has the same chance to go to school. We need to pray God has a plan.
