Live Below the Line

March 6, 2012
by Lisa Marchal, Global Grassroots Associate

Live Below the Line is a worldwide challenge by the Global Poverty Project (GPP) to have people to live for five days on the equivalent of the extreme poverty line and see, in a new way, what 1.4 billion people are coping with around the globe. While this challenge is a commitment you wouldn’t want to take on without the advice of your health care provider, you certainly can check out what the program is all about through the Global Poverty Project’s 1.4 Billion Reasons presentations being held around the country this spring. You can also use these presentations as a chance to connect your RESULTS work with others in the community who care about ending extreme poverty. Is GPP coming to your town? Check out their schedule below and get in touch with them for more information about the events below.
