Poverty Awareness Day
UPLIFT Chatham delivers poverty awareness workshops throughout the year to various organizations for a fee. UPLIFT also periodically offers a community Poverty Awareness Day open to all for a small suggested donation.
The workshops consist of two inspiring parts:
Perspectives on Poverty invites you to a conversation on the scope of poverty in Chatham County and how individuals and organizations can work together to help financially vulnerable people become self-sufficient.
The Cost of Poverty Experience (COPE) is an immersive role-play learning experience that gives participants an opportunity to experience poverty firsthand through the eyes of the real people who have lived life facing its challenges.
The next community Poverty Awareness Day is not yet scheduled. If you’re interesting in participating, please click below and we will notify you when a date is set.
