The Global Poverty Project's vision is a world where extreme poverty doesn’t exist.
We're working to make this vision a reality – by educating and mobilising citizens worldwide with our ground-breaking educational presentation 1.4 Billion Reasons, and providing audiences with easy everyday actions they can take to reduce the number of people living in extreme poverty.
In Australia, the Global Poverty Project we are building the movement to end extreme poverty with our world-class Poverty Education Program.
We’re travelling the nation and educating students about extreme poverty – giving Australian youth the knowledge and resources they need to become leaders in the movement to end extreme poverty.
Funds raised during our new poverty awareness campaign Live Below the Line will be used to reach additional schools, and inspire grassroots initiatives like the 250km fundraising trek that Mount Beauty Secondary students Lachie Ranton and Jack Simpson organised to engage their community and raise over $5,000 for Oxfam Australia’s overseas development projects.
Every $200 raised during Live Below the Line will allow us to travel to another school, and inspire 100 Australian youths.
Over one thousand Australians will Live Below the Line from August 2nd - 6th. support their efforts, and help us reach our target of inspiring 50,000 additional Australian students in the next 12 months, you can donate here.
