Every week we feature a fun and/or educational activity you can try at home or in the classroom. This week, we want to present you with the Live Below the Line challenge. Join others on World Hunger Day and support the campaign that fights poverty through the movement of enthusiastic people.
The Global Poverty Project initiated the campaign to educate and mobilize mission-minded people in the fight against hunger and poverty.
About 1.4 billion people worldwide live below the poverty line every day. Heifer International helps families and communities who live in extreme poverty.
Our long-term solutions distinguish Heifer from emergency relief aid organizations. We provide livestock along with training and education so people can lift themselves out of poverty and lead sustainable lives.
Your goal is to experience a week in the lives of the world’s poorest people. In the U.S., living below the poverty line for five days means spending only $1.50 a day on food and drink.
