A note from Patrick Pylvainen:

                                         

Students Engaged in Global Aid (SEGA), together with GlobeMed, is bringing a speaking event to campus called 1.4 Billion Reasons. This presentation is put on by the Global Poverty Project, and is a traveling speaking event that goes to universities, churches, and other meeting places to bring the issue of global poverty to the forefront. The goal is to engage and inspire audiences to understand and get involved in the movement to end extreme poverty.

The presentation is built around five sections:

  • What is extreme poverty?
  • Can we do anything about it?
  • What are the barriers to ending extreme poverty?
  • Why should we care?
  • What can I do?

The event is Tuesday at 6:30 in the Wriston Auditorium.
