Global Poverty Project, Apr 2013

IODR donated £1,800 to ‘Live below the line’ which challenges people to live below the poverty line for 5 days.

The project empowers families and communities not only to feed their own children but to build sustainable futures for them.

The Global Poverty Project works in Africa, Asia and Latin America, reaching 19 million people in the most rural places imaginable.

Clusters of rural villages where women and men are mobilised to create and run their own programmes to meet basic needs. After several phases over a five-year period, an epicentre becomes self-reliant, meaning it is able to fund its own activities and no longer requires further investment from The Hunger Project.
