Survive 125

Try living on $1.25 a day. Virtually, that is. Survive 125 is an extreme poverty simulator game developed by Live 58. See if you can survive for 30 days, making the kind of choices most of us never have to make. Decide between paying for a uniform so your child can go to school or buying firewood and food for the day. Send your daughter to work in a factory for some extra income knowing there’s a risk of her being victim to sex trafficking? Need to buy medicine for your sick mother or she will die?

This simulation has been eye opening and sobering for me each time I try it.  It reminds me of the devastating choices that those living in extreme poverty have to make almost daily.  I would encourage you to give it a try. 

Many thanks to MPPC and Live 58 for the text and picture.
