The HOPE Poverty Simulation is a 2.5-hour immersive learning experience designed to help you glimpse into the realities of a lifetime spent living in extreme poverty. The simulation might be likened to immersive theater, and participation lasts the full two-and-a-half hours. Over the course of the simulation, you will be confronted with a series of challenges that mimic the complex, everyday obstacles that billions of men and women are forced to grapple with. The experience provides something that even international travel cannot—it allows you to move from the observational to the symbolically experiential, and to look at extreme poverty from the inside.

Our hope is that your simulation experience would grow your empathy for people living in extreme poverty, and that you would be prompted to strategically engage in combating the issues that the simulation raises. You will enjoy your simulation the most if you arrive wearing comfortable, machine washable clothing and closed toed shoes.
