Survive125 Online Game Simulates Living In Extreme Poverty

Your name is Divya Patel. You are a 26-year-old woman living in India with your four children. You are a bricklayer and you make $1.25 a day. In order to survive, you are forced to make difficult decisions all the time. Would you be able to survive one month with this lifestyle?

That is the premise of the new online game launched by Live58, a nonprofit organization devoted to ending extreme poverty. The game, Survive125, encourages gamers to live the life that is a reality for 1.3 billion people — about 26 percent of the population — in India by challenging them to survive one month on $1.25 a day.
