Poverty survivor

Surviving poverty tv show

I would like to propose a new tv show-"surviving poverty". There could be someone like Bear Grylls, trying to survive half a year in several poverty situations in harsh environments, like in africa, where people die of hunger, in some asian countries, where they get a bunch of rice to eat or even some baltic states, where some families with children live on some 0.5 eur/person/day. Another interesting challenges could be added like fighting racketeers in poor african countries or trying to survive a winter in a rented flat with children, trying not to go bankrupt paying for expensive food, heating, medicine, etc (maybe even being jobless). The rich world would be amazed to see.

       There are already several shows somewhat like this - "Blood, Sweat and T-shirts" and its successors have the poverty, "Tribe" has someone like Bear Grylls.
