There are currently 1.4 billion people globally living on less than £1 a day. This is classified by the World Bank as living below the poverty line, and the majority of these are young people.
We want people to better understand the restrictions this causes. Live Below the Line is a national campaign that is challenging the general public to live on £1 a day for 5 days from 2-6th May 2011. Could you?
You’ll be raising awareness of the lack of choice that people in developing countries face every day. The money we raise through the campaign will fund projects and programmes that give young people the skills and opportunities to break the poverty cycle and resolve the persistent issues facing themselves, their communities and their countries. You’ll be helping to put young people at the forefront of development.
Be one of the 5000 people in the UK taking on the challenge – join them for Restless Development at Live Below The Line for Restless Development.
We need you to get involved and get people talking about it. Join thousands of others by following us on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, where we’ll be sharing recipe ideas, fundraising tips and experiences from below the line.
Talking of recipe ideas, how about this one…?
