Slum Survivor

leave a comment »

On this page you’ll find all of the video links, and eventually bible studies and other stuff associated with Slum Survivor: Dharavi 2010. The project this year was to research and involve ourselves in the realities of day to day life in Mumbai’s sprawling urban slum Dharavi; living for a weekend under the conditions (as far as the HSE would allow), with the jobs and home life that Dharavi’s 1,000,000 residents inhabit 365 days a year.

Here is where you can find and watch Kevin McCloud: Slumming it.

Here are the Rob Bell videos Rich and Chairs and the ice cream statistic.

Advent Conspiracy here. Trade justice videos here, and the oz one here. My personal favourite is the middle of the three above, trading out poverty one transaction at a time. Its gloriously simple, and emminently doable. It also looks like Jesus in the way that He changed everything by his focus on the individual.

If your group is old enough, why not reward them with watching Slumdog Millionaire, or another slum based movie (my picks are City of God and City of Men from Rio).
