Why I Care about Ending Poverty

People are afraid of poverty, so they distance themselves from it. When we come across somebody that we can label as a victim we create a 'them and us' mindset. In order to pretend that we have some control over our own personal destiny we decide that it was the victims own fault. A moments reflection corrects this distortion, however reflection is an uncomfortable skill that many avoid practicing. My personal goal as a Community Leader for Oaktree is to change this mindset that people have and help society realise that if we all put our hands together we can end extreme poverty.

    "Rachael, your plans sound awesome! Having a couple of people on your team is better than no one, and maybe after the awesome dinner you’re holding some of your other friends will consider joining you :) I’d love to hear how it goes.
    Our next meet up will be on Monday 8th April, 6.30pm at Turnstyle (10 Laura Street, Highgate Hill). Can you make it?"

    "Hey Cassandra! Not too bad, I’ve only got a couple of people on my team but I’m organising a dinner at mine for next weekend where I cook a whole bunch of my friends dinner and they donate to my campaign how much they think they would spend if they were going out to dinner. It’ll also be a chance to tell my friends a lot more about it Live Below the Line. Is there another meet up coming up?
