Young People and Poverty
Impact and possibilities
“Not much is known about the number of poor young people around the world and the ways they experience poverty…Few researchers have looked into the poverty characteristics of young people…”
World Youth Report 2005
*Government of Mozambique, “Action Plan for the Reduction of Absolute Poverty (2001-2005) (PARPA)”, p. 11.
B1 is a fasting campaign that engages youth in issues facing impoverished communities. B1 stands for “One being, being one”. Similar to the South African concept of Ubuntu, B1 seeks to connect youth to issues facing our sisters and brothers both in our immediate communities and around the world.
“A person with ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed.”
Archbishop Desmond Tutu 1999
