The study aims at analyzing the problem of poverty with reference to Sudanese conditions. Advanced solutions focus on financial, direct commodity provisions and Islamic Zakat. However, in the current vision we focus on the viability of promoting self-employment, expanding job opportunities in the public and private sectors in addition to generating income generation by improving development of agricultural and industrial activities. The society and specialized authorities are vital in extension work and programs genesis. The role of official programs, are axial for a successful implementation in addition to directing and helping NGO's in financing such targets. It is important to survey the relevance in devising a poverty-reduction strategy. Government and public actions should play in creating employment. That means that failures in labor markets and exploitive institutional arrangements may require the attention of public policy in support of the poor. There is also the risk of public institutional and organizational failure, especially in cases where governance problems and weaknesses in the legal system loom large, they undermine the country’s potential for economic development and reduce the scope for employment programs. Thus, poverty can be born out of political failures that result in negligence and social interregnum.
