Poverty Simulation

Poverty is a reality for many individuals and families. Unless you have experienced poverty firsthand, it can be difficult to truly understand.


The Poverty Simulation is an interactive immersion experience designed to bridge the gap from misconception to understanding, sensitizing participants to the realities of living in poverty. In this simulation, participants are assigned to a “family” where they will experience what it is like to live from week to week in a low-income scenario. The objective of the simulation is to promote awareness, increase understanding, and inspire local change.
