Learn about Poverty through Pictures
This activity aims to show Guides visually what poverty look like

• Ask the girls to collect pictures that represent poverty for them. The pictures can be from Ireland, from Europe, from outside Europe and can represent poverty for a variety of groups/themes (children, adults, animals, the environment, cities…)
• They can look into their family books and magazines as well as use the internet.
• Girls are asked to print or photocopy the pictures and bring them to the next meeting.
• During the meeting, each girl will present one or more picture they have collected.
• They will talk about where the picture was taken and when, who or what is affected by poverty and what could be done to overcome poverty.
• The picture can be glued to a big poster and left to display at the meeting place.
