Power chal­lenge for poverty

Central Leader - - News -

Per­form­ers for Poverty want fam­i­lies to help those less for­tu­nate and learn about what life is like with­out elec­tric­ity.

They are look­ing for schools and groups to run the 48-hour power chal­lenge, a fundraiser where peo­ple go with­out power for as long as pos­si­ble and gain spon­sor­ship for each hour they take part.

Pro­ceeds go to­wards help­ing Per­form­ers for Poverty’s ef­forts in Fiji.

The char­i­ta­ble or­gan­i­sa­tion pro­vides teach­ing re­sources, class­room furniture, com­put­ers, med­i­cal sup­plies, clothes, and books to vil­lages, schools and med­i­cal cen­tres in Fiji.

The char­ity will pro­vide re­sources such as posters and spon­sor­ship forms and food for groups tak­ing part.
