All proceeds from sales of Hindenburg on WRD donated to Indigenous Peoples' radio stations
In 2015, the World Bank adjusted the global poverty line figure to $1.90 per day per family of 4.
This means that a family must earn at least $1.90 a day to meet its most basic food, clothing and shelter needs. A family earning less is generally accepted to be living in extreme poverty.
It is estimated that half of the world's population, about 3 billion people, live in poverty. Of that, at least 700 million people live in extreme poverty, earning less than $1.90 per day per family.
A large number of these families are Indigenous Peoples, who are furthermore often discriminated against and denied equal access to education, media and services in their home countries.
For the whole of World Radio Day around the world, from 00:01 in Kiribati on the Christmas Islands, to 23:59 in Honolulu, Hawaii, Hindenburg will proudly offer a full Journalist licence for $1.90. We will match all income from those licences sales and donate all proceeds to Cultural Survival.
Here at Hindenburg, it is all about the story.
Help us to help Indigenous Peoples around the world tell their story.
