Although globalization, a popular concept in today’s world, has brought together many technological developments, it has created some inconveniencies as well. The poverty created by inequality of income which takes place on top of the list of inconveniencies hits mostly children, thus affecting the future. Child poverty which comes on top of the list of issues to be handled as a starting point, brings many issues such as child labor, child brides, uneducated society, high rate of crime together. The poor children who become poor because of their families’ poverty live this problem both socially and economically plus in terms of health issues. Those issues cause their deaths. The global world getting stronger day by day thanks to Neo-liberal policies cannot stop the deaths of nearly 18 thousand children every day. The most important role is for the governments.
