Cultural traditions and practices to help poorest children - Jordan

On the occasion of International Day for the Eradication of Poverty and World Food Day 2014, I introduced the issue of "how cultural traditions and practices help improve educational opportunities and food supply for the poorest children". The students raised the idea of discussion.

I divided the students into two groups sitting in the form of a loop.

Each group discussed the issue, then presented their results to the other group.

The results:

1- Our religion asks us to help poor people with money, food, and things that are not provided through "charity";

2- Our religion allows for rich people to support poor children;

3- Our religion commands us Zakat (giving money to help poor people).
