College of Arts and Sciences, Room 224
The Global Poverty Project's 1.4 Billion Reasons presentation is an engaging multimedia talk that explains the reality facing the 1.4 billion people currently living in extreme poverty around the world, and provides students with the information and tools they need to take effective action against extreme poverty. For 110 days, four young GPP "Road Scholars" will engage students at universities, high schools, and community organizations across the country and make them part of a global narrative standing against extreme poverty. From February to May, they'll be in a van on a nationwide road trip challenging communities everywhere to accept a Live Below the Line commitment, in which they eat and drink on a $1.50 a day (the extreme poverty line) for five days. The LBL campaign raises donations for GPP partner organizations US Fund for UNICEF, Opportunity International, the World Food Programme, and more. Please RSVP via the link above.
