Peace Corps Online Game

The official website of the Peace Corps has a section for education and contains a game meant for kids.  It is for fun, and also a resource for teachers.  I have a feeling adults might like it too.

It is called the Peace Corps Challenge Game.  In the game, players take the role of a Peace Corps Volunteer assigned to the fictional village of Wanzuzu.  In the game players explore eight critical challenges villagers are faced with, and determine realistic and sustainable solutions to improve their quality of life.

The eight critical challenges the game addresses are real life issues.  They are:

    • Water Contamination
    • Sanitation & Disease
    • Microfinance
    • Barren Fields
    • Malaria
    • Soil Runoff
    • Educating Village Girls
    • Agroforestry

The Peace Corps Challenge Game can be found by clicking here.

Have fun !
