I'm Living Below the Line...


In today's world of atrocities people too easily become accustomed to continuing reports of human beings of whom they know little, living in extreme poverty with little or no access to nutritious food and safe drinking water.


If you have a bed to sleep on, clothes to wear, a roof over your head and access to food- you’re richer than 75% of the worlds population.


There are over 3 billion people living in poverty, a number so huge it's beyond our comprehension. 

That’s almost half the worlds population, living on less than $2 a day. 

That’s 57 times the whole population of Australia, living below the poverty line. 

That’s 13, 131 times a MCG packed on grand final day, that don't have access to nutritious food. 


In Australia, extreme poverty is often out of sight, out of mind. But what happens if it was one of your friends living below the poverty line, someone you care about living off less that $2 a day? Would you do something to help?


I’m hoping the answer is yes! 


If 3 billion people are forced to live in poverty; $2 a day for food, drink, medicine, transport, housing, education and clothing, I can live off $2 a day for food and drink. 


As Nelson Mandela said “overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life.”


I believe in a world where education is a human right, but also the best way of empowering people so they can raise themselves out of poverty.
