University students living on $2.25 a day

Odd diets and limited funds are not unknown to university students, but some are making the best of it to help do some good.

From October 6, dozens of Victoria University students will spend five days living off whatever meals they can make for $2.25 a day.

They have have signed up to take part in the Live Below the Line campaign.

Live below the Line organisers say is a physical and mental challenge that will change the way people see poverty and make a big difference for the world’s poorest.

New Zealand participants have raised more than $1 million for various poverty-focused projects since 2011.

Live Below the Line is supported by Christian World Service (CWS).

Christian World Service is the development, justice and aid agency of a number of mainstream New Zealand Churches.
