Poverty, on the other hand, often breeds more poverty.The poverty trap is a situation where the poor do not have access to capital be it education, healthcare, job opportunities or credit to escape poverty, and the cycle extends to future generations.Based on human development measures, Egypt is one of the countries where certain social segments are caught in the poverty trap, often due to overpopulation. Moreover, the new, adjusted poverty rate is estimated at around 35%, according to economics professor Heba El Laithy. And, the last concerns the Gross National Income (GNI) per capita.To address the poverty trap, the state needs to address all three fronts. These include improving public administration, the judicial system, and security,” Galal explains.Education is essential to avoid falling into the poverty trap, and is one means to get out of it. The top five governorates in the number of dropouts—Giza, Sohag, Aswan, Beheira, and Assiut—include three cities in Upper Egypt, where the poverty rate surpasses all other regions in the country.

File- Ahmed Adam and Mohamed Negm. Plus, how would Adam be feeling now, knowing that the last thing Negm would have seen before his death is this attack from Adam? How would his children feel or even Razak's family? Surly there is a fine line between being honest and brutally hurtful.Ironically a week or so later after Adam's appearance on Sheikh Al-Hara, the same programme had Somyea Al-Khashab as a guest and it was then made public by the disguised character of Sheikh Al-Hara that after Al-Khashab's divorce from Ahmed Saad, she received a phone call from Adam who told her 'she has become so beautiful after her divorce'. Is this a normal behaviour of an actor with such calibre?Whether you love or loath Adam, you must question his decisions and question how can his PR team – if he has one – allow such behaviour to continue because Adam is not a huge star so his fan base can not be compared to someone like Mohammed Ramadan – his fans always forgive his mistakes because of the size of these fans plus the fact he is an actor in demand – both of which don't apply to Adam which makes his errors more difficult to forgive and forget.
