Your challenge is to survive the knocks that poverty throws at you. Stay upright and you've made it out of poverty. At the start of each levele you'll be presented with a choice - whichever choice you make you'll need to stay upright. Each choice you make comes with the knock and helping hands that families in poverty often experience. The more knocks your choice creates, the less likely you'll be to stay upright.

Poverty 


Background

Poverty is the scarcity or the lack of a certain (variant) amount of material possessions or money. Poverty is a multifaceted concept, which may include social, economic, and political elements. Absolute poverty, extreme poverty, or destitution refers to the complete lack of the means necessary to meet basic personal needs such as food, clothing and shelter.

The threshold at which absolute poverty is defined is considered to be about the same, independent of the person's permanent location or era. On the other hand, relative poverty occurs when a person who lives in a given country does not enjoy a certain minimum level of "living standards" as compared to the rest of the population of that country. Therefore, the threshold at which relative poverty is defined varies from country to another, or from one society to another.
