Context: Impoverished communities face significant challenges  due to socioeconomic disparities, trapped in the vicious  poverty cycle and often living in extreme poverty. To combat  this pressing issue, poverty alleviation programs and poverty  reduction strategies are vital in narrowing income inequality and raising the standard of living for vulnerable populations.  Defining a poverty line helps identify those in need and ensures  targeted support. Long-term goals involve sustainable poverty  eradication, lifting communities out of poverty and promoting  self-sufficiency. Implementing effective social welfare schemes provides a safety net, offering access to basic needs and  essential services. Empowering impoverished communities  through education, skill-building, and access to opportunities  can break the chains of poverty, creating a more equitable and  inclusive society for all.
