Live Below The Line

 There are currently 1.2 billion people living on less than £1 a day. That’s less than £1 to cover ALL living expenses.The majority of these people living below the poverty line are young people under the age of 25. 

By Living Below the Line with Restless Development, you will be supporting thousands of our young volunteers who are preventing the spread of Ebola in Sierra Leone, getting young voices heard in the Tanzanian elections, and defending girls’ rights to education in India.

Imagine what they could achieve if they weren’t living below the poverty line. The potential is huge.

Live Below the Line is a campaign that challenges people to eat and drink on £1 a day for 5 days, and in doing so, raises awareness of the lack of choice and opportunity faced on a daily basis by the people who live below the extreme poverty line. 

A really good way of making your £5 stretch is by teaming up with others and pooling your food, so don’t just ask family members, friends, and co-workers to sponsor you, ask them to sign up too!
