Free Screening - "Into Poverty: Living on One Dollar" Presented by Living on One in Partnership with Boston College and Whole Foods
Over 1.1 billion people around the globe live on $1 a day – marking a significant portion of the population as living below the poverty line. On November 1st, Living On One, in partnership with The Winston Center for Leadership and Ethics at Boston College and sponsored by Whole Planet (Whole Foods’ foundation focused on microfinance), will connect young people in Boston with the realities of the poor through a free public screening of their documentary film, “Into Poverty: Living on One Dollar.”
With the U.S. battling a poverty rate of 15%, Living on One is touring the country in an old loaner school bus (pictured below) to raise awareness of global poverty and enact change. Inspired by personal experiences while living in rural Guatemala, the founders are bringing the reality of global poverty to Boston before continuing on to other stops in New England and across the country.
