To me, poverty is the most important problem because it can lead to hunger and other problems.
Greg Mortenson is someone who saw poor villagers when he was climbing a mountain and wanted to help them. He raised money in the USA for a school for them and continues to help them.

Interviewer: Hello and welcome to the programme, Greg. Now, how did your story begin?
Greg: Well, it all started when I set out to climb K2. I never made it to the top, but I ended up in the village of Korphe. I was injured, hungry, and quite tired.
Interviewer: What happened to you there?
Greg: The villagers looked after me and they were very kind. I noticed everyone was very poor. People were sick and the children didn’t have a proper school.
Interviewer: What did you do?
Greg: I returned home and raised money to help them. They helped me and I wanted to do something for them.
Interviewer: What did you do exactly?
Greg: I returned with the money and built them a school.
Interviewer: What have you done since then?
Greg: Since then I’ve built around 80 schools in other poor countries. I also organise campaigns to fight poverty and illiteracy.
Interviewer: You have won many peace awards. How does this make you feel?
Greg: What makes me happy and proud is the smiles of the children we have helped.
