understanding poverty

We hope that throughout your project you will be able to make people aware of the reasons you are raising this money. We ask all our participants to think carefully about the way you talk about poverty and the children you are working towards supporting.

Our job as fundraisers is to make donors more aware, educated and promote understanding.

  • Be respectful, people are more than the poverty they live in.
  • Do not speak about someone in poverty in a way you would not like someone to speak about you.
  • Remember we are all people, there is huge power in focusing on our common humanity.
  • Focus on the vision. What do you believe all children deserve? Why is it so important that children living in poverty have this opportunity?
  • You have a powerful message. Tell people about what you are learning and how it is helping others.

QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF ABOUT THESE VIDEOS

CONSIDER THAT ALL PEOPLE SHOULD BE SPOKEN ABOUT IN A RESPECTFUL AND DIGNIFIED WAY. THE BEST WAY TO HELP PEOPLE IS BEING SEEING THAT WE ARE ALL HUMANS AND WORKING TO PREVENT SUFFERING.

If we teach our children they will seek the knowledge to act on these
