Poverty is a reality for many people; yet, unless you have experienced it, it can be difficult to understand. Susan Monson and Sarah Stenberg from MAHUBE-OTWA Community Action facilitated a Poverty Simulation for NWCA staff, Board members and community leaders in Badger on August 28th. This interactive immersion experience helped bridge the gap from misconception to understanding.
Sixty-five people participated in this transformative experience. The goals of this Poverty Simulation were to:
- Promote Poverty Awareness
- Increase Understanding
- Inspire Local Change
- Transform Perspectives
