For this blog entry we hand the authorship over to a guest, Madeline R. Young. Madeline is member of our London group and a good friend of RESULTS. She works as a Research Consultant at the FRIDE Foundation.
On January 11th, RESULTS UK held a public screening of the “1.4 Billion Reasons” D.V.D made by the Global Poverty Project. I am glad that I came to this event! The audience was a diverse mix of people from many backgrounds: volunteers, development professionals, and community members who came together to learn more about hot to get involved in ending extreme poverty. We watched the video and shared our reactions to it. Most of us felt that it was a very good presentation that gave hope and inspiration in the fight against the extreme poverty that is affecting 1.4 billion people who live on less than £1 per day.
