In Savannah, over 27,000 people live at or below the poverty level. Most are considered the “working poor,” receiving a minimum or low wage. The poverty simulation experience is designed to help participants begin to understand the barriers faced by a typical low-income family trying to survive from month to month. It is a simulation, not a game.
Who might participate?Anyone who wants to understand the people with whom they work or the people in their communities who need their support. Walk a mile in the shoes of those facing poverty to try to understand the situations and decisions people experience every day.
How do I participate? Our apologies but this simulation is full! Please look here for our next scheduled event.
