Mission and Vision
To see how our core work in the field can connect with external audiences who could learn and engage in issues related to rural development, we have created a social game, Wonder Village, which is hosted on Facebook.With over 80 million users playing games on Facebook every month for an average of 15 minutes a day, Wonder Village has the potential to be an effective awareness-building and fundraising tool for the development sector.
Through the game, Wonder Village, players set up a simulated village economy and have opportunities to relate with actual farmers in the field. Players are placed in a resource-constrained setting and pursue quests like setting up small farms of paddy and maize and supplying raw materials to farmers' markets. The game follows a "freemium" model, which allows users to play for free and allows users to purchase virtual currency to advance more quickly.
