Poverty is a barrier for children to gain access to opportunities for participation available to their non-poor counterparts, and the exclusion of such social experience disrupts the poor children's social lives. This chapter aims to provide evidence on the importance of bonding and bridging social capital for the poor children in the process of developing human capital and conquering social exclusion through participating in the school-based and community-based programs.
