Trips makes us happy and our kids happier. As much as we love taking our children on vacation for a weekend out because we know how beneficial it can be to their growth, the effect it has on kids who live in poverty is even more amplified.
Children in poverty rarely have the chance to travel outside of their house or school over their lifetime. This causes them to not be able to dream or lack of ambition to achieve better and break out of poverty. Hence they stay poor until adults, and the poverty cycle repeat to their future children.
