Living 'below the poverty line'
Women are more likely to be food insecure than men in EVERY region in the world. Facts like this are somewhat familiar but equally as shocking. The Hunger Project is a women's-centered global non-profit, that uses sustainable solutions to tackle poverty world wide. To raise money for the charity, starting on the 8th of February, I will be living 'below the poverty line' on £1 a day for 5 days (food and drink!!). This is the reality for so many people, even in Southwark - where the use of food banks has increased by >300% since the pandemic. Eating, especially when it's nice, nutritious food, is a real luxury. Please donate whatever you can, every little helps! Thanks, Dais xxx
(£25 could fund functional adult literacy training for two women so that they can learn to read and write, £30 could provide one woman with a microfinance loan and financial literacy training so she can start a small business, £65 could train a local volunteer leader who will educate mothers about the importance of pre-natal care to ensure their babies are delivered safely, £125 could train one Elected Woman in India to be an effective local council member and ban child marriage in her community).
