Wow.
 
I don't always link to TED talks but when I do, it pays to watch them

http://www.ted.com/talks/hugh_herr_the_new_bionics_that_let_us_run_climb_and_dance

Hugh Herr is building the next generation of bionic limbs, robotic prosthetics inspired by nature's own designs. Herr lost both legs in a climbing accident 30 years ago; now, as the head of the MIT Media Lab’s Biomechatronics group, he shows his incredible technology in a talk that's both technical and deeply personal. 

I am not going to spoil it but chances are high that you'll be fighting tears, in a good way, before you've even made it halfway through this video. If you need to renew your faith in the goodness of mankind or its ability to overcome problems, Hugh Herr has got you covered.

Very well researched and written article.
 
It's not the person, or at least, not only the person.  If you put anyone, including you, into the environment produced by prolonged poverty, you'll get the same results.

Let's work towards actually fixing the problem.  Implement a GBI.
And why their "bad" decisions might be more rational than you'd think.
