Against All Odds, an interactive online game created by the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), increases students’ awareness and knowledge of refugee situations by putting players in the position of a refugee. Students follow a young person’s flight from oppression in his or her home country to exile in an asylum country. As they play the game, students learn about where the refugee came from, what situations the refugee has faced and how the refugee adapts to a new life.
UNHCR offers FREE educational materials for teachers of grades 4-12, including lesson plans, magazines, videos and posters.
