Living below the line campaign
The British Muslim Heritage Centre (BMHC) staff and volunteers joined over 20,000 people around the world in living on £1.00 a day for 5 days. Live Below the Line is an initiative of the Global Poverty Project, an education and campaigning organisation whose mission is to increase the number and effectiveness of people taking action against extreme poverty.
Live Below the Line is an innovative campaign which challenges thousands of individuals across the world to
live on £1.00 a day for 5 days, to deepen understanding of the challenges faced by individuals living in poverty, and to raise vital funds for crucial anti-poverty initiatives.
Team BMHC and hundreds of other Live Below The Line participants attended a special BBQ at Willowbrook Farm in Oxfordshire. Team BMHC won an award for raising the most money as an organisation and one of the members of the team won an award for raising the most money as an individual.
