Living on a Dollar a Day
The recession and tough job market has made life difficult for recent college graduates. But many of us easily forget that for the majority of people in the world life has always been difficult. After spending the summer of 2010 working on a radish farm in Guatemala recent college grads Zach Ingrasci, Chris Temple, Sean Leonard, and Ryan Christofferson have been reminding other young people of this fact.
The four friends met at Claremont McKenna College in Los Angeles and set out to understand poverty on a personal level by living on less than dollar a day in a Guatemalan village. When they came back they decided to go on a four month long tour and share a documentary about their experience with students across the country. The project, called Living on One and co-founded by Minneapolis Native Hannah Gregg, raises money for Microfinance organizations. The group was in town last night at the Bell Auditorium.
