Abdul Azim Momand and Muhammad Tahir Khpalwak
In order to talk about poverty and examine its situation in our country Afghanistan, it is necessary to know how many people the World Bank knows about the number of people living in absolute poverty in the world and what number they indicate about the poverty line. According to the World Bank, there are approximately 736 million people living in absolute poverty worldwide, with India ranking first with 24%, and Europe and Central Asia and North America with 1.1%. 6% of the world's poor belong to South Asian countries, including Afghanistan. In the country where we live, one out of every two people lives in poverty. According to the estimates of the Central Statistics Office (CSO), the population of Afghanistan reaches 28.6 million people, on this account, 14.3 million people in our country live in poverty, which is really a catastrophe and we can even call it a deep catastrophe.
This study was conducted to identify the reasons of poverty from the perspective of students at Kabul University. Kabul University has 25,000 students, 378 of students were selected as a sample. The results of this research showed that from the perspective of students, (war, unemployment, corruption and drought) are the most important and major reasons of poverty in Afghanistan.
