38. Education is an excellent suggestion.

A lot of people in depressed areas don't have much, but many of them have a lot of time on their hands. If they have schools to go to and money to take classes and earn degrees, they are much more likely to eventually lift themselves out of poverty. Educated people are less likely to land in the pitfalls of life that plague so many in poor areas. Educated people are more likely to find solutions to the problems that they see around them. A good education is never a waste.
