The Global Poverty Project in London

Sunday afternoon some volunteers from the London RESULTS group (Dem, Tracy and Simon) participated at the Global Poverty Project Summer Tour event at RichMix in Bethnal Green. RESULTS had a little stand where we showcased some of the London group’s work, all our latest actions and some of letters received back from MPs.

The event warmed up with a DJ followed by a VSO movie about their Global Xchange Programme. Some more live music followed, and then the actual Global Poverty Project presentation from Elisha filled up the venue. She was very inspiring and passionate, and especially underlined how important women’s empowerment could be to reaching the Millennium Development Goals.

More music followed, with two highlights being a jam session by a local band with some young and very clever musicians and another group playing some pretty funky Balkan-style music.

A successful and fun day, with lots of new RESULTS recruits for the London group!
