Living On a Dollar a Day

“One in six people in the world live at or below the poverty threshold of one dollar a day. At a time of great social and economic disruption in the world, people on the brink of survival can be easily pushed over the edge, or just as easily pulled back to safety. The people who generously shared their stories in Living On A Dollar A Day inspire us to change lives for the better. “Living On A Dollar A Day”, (Text by Thomas A. Nazario, Photographs by Renée C. Byer and Foreword by the 14th Dalai Lama), is a passionate call to action, presenting 348 pages filled with over 200 color photographs, profiles, explanatory charts and graphics that deliver an unprecedented and thought-provoking examination of global poverty, and how it impacts the poor and the rest of the world community”. – The Quantuck Lane Press

While balancing a bucket on her head with the little metal she has found, tears stream down her face as the result of the pain that comes with the malaria she contracted some years ago. This is work she must do to survive. (Photo by Renée C. Byer/Living on a Dollar a Day)
