Global Poverty Project
The Global Poverty Project utilizes the power of education, communications, advocacy, campaigning and the media to advance the movement to end extreme poverty.
We know extreme poverty is a complex issue, and that it can’t be eradicated overnight, or by one person. That’s why we’re building a global movement for change: focused on making a difference now, and changing the systems and policies that keep people in poverty.
We do this in two ways:
- Campaigning for government, business and consumer action that will create important systemic change for the world’s extreme poor, and
- Building a movement that engages and educates people, and supports them to take simple but effective individual actions for change.
Whether you choose to watch the film on your own or you decide to host an inspiring social action viewing party, the To Catch A Dollar Toolkit has everything you’ll need to participate (except for the refreshments!)
There are post cards and invites for you to customize and print, text, or email. You’ll also find some documents including a screening guide, info about microfinance, discussion questions, and much more.
To raise awareness there are suggested social media posts along with graphics, as well as some logos and banners for your website or blog.
(Global Citizen Tickets is an initiative through which artists like Pearl Jam and JAY Z, have donated two tickets to all their shows in order to reward social actions taken through Global Citizen)
