dc.description.abstract There are multiple factors that can help interrupt the intergenerational transmission of poverty. Education and employment are central: keeping young people in school, and ensuring that the quality of education received enables access to further skills training to improve their chances of entering the labour market. Accessing public goods such as health care, good nutrition, clean water and sanitation and housing that provides shelter and dignity is also fundamental. Social, cultural and symbolic capitals that enable access to networks, improve psychosocial well-being, provide insight into the so-called "rules of the game" and open opportunities for advancement and entry into the rights and responsibilities of democratic citizenship are also critical. en
