Poverty Simulation Experience

WIC CIAO Project: Poverty Simulation

The Poverty Escape Room isn’t a traditional simulation. Often, organizations are looking for smaller group trainings to gain an understanding of the crisis of poverty. This activity is designed to allow participants to experience and gain insights into the complex issues associated with poverty. We all know that you cannot truly “escape” poverty in 90 minutes, but can you survive a day in the life of someone in the crisis of poverty? In the Poverty Escape Room, participants can gain a glimpse into the obstacles and barriers that individuals in poverty encounter on a daily basis and reflect on their experience with other participants. The goal is to foster awareness and understanding of the impact of poverty on the individuals and families we interact with regularly. The Poverty Escape Room also serves as a starting point for conversations on how we can collectively support and empower those living in poverty.
