Event Details

In the face of overwhelming global need, it’s easy to feel paralyzed. As believers, we know we’re called to act—but what do we do? You are invited to take a first step by symbolically slipping into the shoes of women and men living in poverty, to try and understand what it’s like from the inside.

The HOPE Poverty Simulation is a 2.5-hour, immersive, experiential learning opportunity designed to help participants glimpse into the realities of a lifetime spent living in poverty. Over the course of the simulation, you will be confronted with a series of challenges that mimic the complex, everyday realities that men and women living in poverty are forced to grapple with. This experience will benefit anyone interested in learning about global need.

Please wear clothing suitable for sitting on the ground and closed-toe shoes. The simulation is limited to ages 14+.
