NetAid World Class is an educational role-play game designed to build global understanding and to engage young people in advocacy efforts on behalf of the world’s unschooled. To play, students take on the identity of a real child living in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. As the game unfolds, students experience the many frustrations that kids living throughout the developing world face in accessing education. The result is a powerful lesson that serves as a springboard for meaningful discussions about global issues, while inspiring in students a sense of empathy and a desire to take action.
