Description of Resource

"Against All Odds is an interactive online game created to increase students' awareness and knowledge about refugee situations by putting players in the position of a refugee. Divided into three categories "War and Conflict", "Borderland", and "A New Life" - Against All Odds takes players on a journey ultimately towards asylum, but also touches on issues of understanding and intuition in different environments. Players will be challenged by a variety of obstacles and scenarios simulating struggles refugees are forced to deal with every day, from sneaking out of town to dealing with prejudices in a new place."
