The lives of poor people are an intricate balance; their steps out of poverty even more so. Millions of daily labourers, herders and farmers eking out subsistence on rugged terrain have no access to clean drinking water and no electric light at home. Street vendors’ children may be undernourished, and entire families illiterate. In tough times many children drop out of school. Improvements may come—an electrification scheme, better water and sanitation, upgraded schools with lunch programmes, and good local health clinics. But conflicts, migrations, disasters and shocks also threaten.
