Starting January 21, multiple clubs will participate in the “30 hour famine” event. The main purpose for this activity is for students to understand how people deal with starvation in third world countries. The event involves various club members from around campus fasting for 18 hours, and participating in activities that help them understand the survival skills impoverished people use.
“[Club] members will be in survival activities to understand the everyday life of Africans,” said Rahul S., co-vice president of FBLA. “Members will go through a survival obstacle course with rivers and many more surprises. There will be about 100 other people involved in the event, people will be divided into groups to represent African tribes; in each group there will be one member that is the leader and will guide the group through the course.”
