A quarter of the world’s population live in severe poverty. Many work long hours in poor conditions just to earn enough to stay alive, often surviving on less than £1.30 per day.
Focusing on children living in poverty in India, this game challenges pupils to find out if they could survive on the streets of Kolkata. Using real cost-of-living prices and wages, players can get an idea of how they would manage if they had to survive making and selling paper bags.
