We are grateful for those in the Portland community who joined us for a bilingual yoga class followed by a public screening of Living on One Dollar at Portlandia International Language School. This documentary reveals the reality of extreme poverty and how Guatemalan families survive in rural villages on one dollar a day.
All the donations from this event went to support Progresa, a scholarship program helping Guatemalans attend university to pursue their dreams of earning a degree of their choice and then working toward sustainable development in their homeland.
This event was possible with the contributions from Trash for Peace and Portlandia Language School's Movie Fridays. The trailer of the film Living on One Dollar can be viewed here.
