Living on one dollar a day

My classes will be watching the video Living on one dollar a day to promote awareness of global poverty and some living conditions in Latin America.  Students will be answering questions about he movie and its impact on their lives and be asked to think about ways to make a change in their own lives either monetarily or with a special act of kindness.  The documentary streams on netflix if you are interested in watching it.  We will be using a dvd in class.  This is a segway into our social justice and global initiatives programs.  In the past we have connected with peace corps partnership programs and this year students will chose weather that, or a micro finance loan through kiva.org or by contributing to the living on one foundation.  any discussion with your child about the impact of the movie is great!  There is a link on the side to the organizations we support and work with.
