During the game each player selects a role to play. In Footsteps in Brazil these roles include a:

    – Street Vendor dealing with abusive police or participating in the organized outdoor market that moves from neighborhood to neighborhood.

 

– Teacher experiencing the middle-class life in Brazil while integrating computer skills into your regular curriculum.

– Houseworker working for well-to-do business people while staying in touch with family members by cell phone because you put in such long hours.

Farmer suffering crop loss due to the heavy rains and applying for farm loans to expand your business or balance your losses

– Rancher living the life of luxury and all that money can buy while realizing how different the white rancher community is from the most black-skinned slum inhabitants.

Many of us living in developed countries have no concrete idea of how the other half lives. Even those living in depressed areas of our own country have it so much better than many living in emerging market countries.

Footsteps gives players a new perspective on life as millions of people around the world live it. Playing Footsteps in Brazil, one player commented, “It was difficult for me to see things going so well for the rancher, when I was barely making ends meet as a street vendor.”

The goals of Footsteps include raising the awareness of players to the complexities of life that residents of each country face, and planting seeds of curiosity that may stimulate players to learn more about emerging market countries and explore how they might be personally involved in improving the life of the people who live there.
