Poverty simulation at Hampton School

It seemed like a recipe for mayhem when, on a midsummer day, we crammed 200 14-year-old boys into their school hall. Yet, these students at Hampton School came for a serious purpose. They were taking part in a poverty simulation run by CGV, an event run with the aim of raising the boys’ awareness, building empathy and, of course, seeing student involvement with people trapped by the web of poverty.

“It made me feel enlightened, thoughtful,” observed one student after the event. Another participant called it a ” very eye-opening insight into life in the slums.”

Sowing seeds of global responsibility into students is one major aim of the Global X-perience programme.
