Want to Partner with the Global Poverty Project?
Global Poverty Project (GPP) is an international awareness-raising organization committed to ending extreme global poverty within a generation. They are hitting the road today to begin their 2013 Spring Tour! During the tour, they will bring their 1.4 Billion Reasons presentation to universities, high schools, and many other organizations across the country.
GPP is delighted to partner with RESULTS for their tour to highlight the work we are doing all over the nation! Their goal of energizing and activating citizens around the issue of extreme poverty is deeply in line with the work RESULTS activists are doing.
GPP’s 1.4 Billion Reasons presentation is an engaging multimedia presentation that explains the reality facing the 1.4 billion people currently living in extreme poverty around the world, and provides audience members with the tools they need to take effective action against extreme poverty. Take a look at a trailer for the presentation or a video about GPP’s mission to get a sense of what they are all about.
So far, 135,000 people around the world have seen their presentation – this year, they will reach 20,000 people with 100 presentations in 100 days. While Global Poverty Project does a great job laying out the situation with extreme poverty in the world, they want to offer action – some way that people can get involved once they are fired up about the issue! That’s where RESULTS comes in.
The tour is starting February 2 and lasting through May. Here are their tour dates so far. There are three ways you or your RESULTS group could get involved:
1. If there is a Global Poverty Project tour stop already planned in your town they would be happy to have you host a RESULTS information table or give a 15-minute presentation on RESULTS which includes an action that people can take right then and there.
2. If there is a tour stop in your town but you’d like to see if GPP can do a second presentation while they are in your area, they would welcome the chance to talk about that possibility. You would need to be able to help create an event of 150+ people and secure the venue and necessary tech equipment (lapel mic, projector, screen, speakers). You would also have the chance to give a 15-minute presentation on RESULTS which includes an action that people can take right then and there.
3. If there is no tour stop in your town, but they are swinging through your state, they would welcome the chance to work with you to create a stop in your location. Again, you would need to be able to help create and event of 150+ people and secure the venue and necessary tech equipment (lapel mic, projector, screen, speakers). You would also have the chance to give a 15-minute presentation on RESULTS which includes an action that people can take right then and there.
