Make the Month is United Way Winnipeg’s online poverty simulation

About 10% of Winnipeggers live in poverty, including one in four children. This online simulation will give you a glimpse of the challenges they face.

Participants are challenged to get to the end of the month facing a variety of life challenges while on a fixed, poverty-level budget.

A greater understanding of poverty can make people more empathetic, and open doors to improve our city for everyone.

United Way Winnipeg can facilitate your group session and lead a debrief afterward.

  • It's meaningful.

    Poverty affects us all. Gaining a new perspective on a reality faced by so many of our fellow Winnipeggers is a worthwhile journey.

  • It's hands-on.

    The decisions you make will determine if you Make the Month.

  • It's informative.

    You can use it in staff training and development. United Way Winnipeg can facilitate a discussion and debriefing to share experiences and lessons, or we can provide you with a self-guided script.
