In our increasingly globalized world, people may be coming from different cultures and different socioeconomic backgrounds than before, thereby necessitating better developed empathy skills. And as future leaders, we must understand the people that we lead and be able to show that we care.
One learn best through play and our simulations have the capability to deliver that. After going through the simulations, participants will have a better understanding of different cultures of the marginalised communities hence is able to better match the needs needed on the ground with the available resources at hand. Such deep learning also allows cultivation of empathy in participants thus leading to strengthening of human relationship and community building both inside and outside organisation environment.

Trash to Cash
Together with other members of your impoverished family, participants try to earn enough to survive by making paper bags out of newspaper and glue. They must earn enough to pay for housing instalment, living expenses, medical needs and, if possible, education for the kids. Those that cannot make it end up in the hands of a social worker. This simulation programme throws participants into the hopelessness and intricacy of the poverty cycle.
