I’m so grateful to have found this video by Freethink, that will not only provide my students with the opportunity to speak about community problems, but it is also witnesses an inspiring approach to dealing with poverty, famine and the feeling of hopelessness. It also proves that WE as CITIZENS CAN rethink how our system is harming people and set out to make great changes, above all, now in times of the pandemic, where many people, who were already living with hand to mouth, are desperately in need of solutions.
Before watching the video below, let’s do a couple of pre-listening activities.
