Cross Dakar City: gaming to highlight child poverty

Share

Can an app inspire impact investors, industry leaders and policy wonks to champion sustainable solutions to cyclical child poverty? This entry into activist gaming is brought to the world by Senegalese engineer, Ousseynou Khadim Bèye. The app, compatible with most devices, highlights the perils of life as lived by a Talibé child who, often exploited, must beg for money. The objective of the game is to get him safely to his parents while surmounting a number of obstacles in the city of Dakar, Senegal. #NeedEconomy
