How Poverty Feels

We don’t want to guilt you. But knowing how it feels – and that we all can help – kindles our compassion and keeps us motivated.

So how does extreme poverty feel?
  • Walking for hours in the hot sun, just to get some water.
  • Feeling weak, suffering from easily preventable diseases.
  • A mother watching her child slowly waste away, because she has no milk to give.
  • Breathing unhealthy air while working 100 hours a week for bare survival pay, when a loan of $100 could start a small business.
  • It’s being hungry. Very hungry.
How does it feel to be part of the solution?

It feels good. And it’s easy to get started.
