The developing world can stamp out poverty only by:
how do you define poverty?
revamping colonial education systems
being left alone to do what is best for them
the media overexaggerate it

Where is Kiswahili spoken?

Kiswahili is the official language of Tanzania and Kenya and is used extensively in Uganda and the eastern and northern provinces of the Democratic Republic of Congo. In Burundi and Rwanda, it is known and used in mostly urban centers, while it is gaining roots in rural societies which have been monolinguistic.

In countries bordering East Africa where Kiswahili functions as the common mode of communication, use of the language goes beyond national borders into towns and villages along major transportation connections, as is the case in northern Mozambique, northern Zambia, and southern Ethiopia. The language is used majorly on the East African coastal strip from well into Somalia and as far south as northern Mozambique. Many communities in the Comoro Islands and northwestern coast of Madagascar Kiswahili-related  vernaculars persist and the standard Kiswahili is rapidly replacing these  languages.
