Remember Free Rice? In the same manner, Free Poverty is a (n addictive) game, a game that benefits a charity.
Instead of testing your spelling, you are tested on your geography. You merely have to place cities and well known sites on a map of the world. Easy peasy.
Let me tell you, they are VERY picky, most especially if you don't know the US of A too terribly well. You can be three countries out in Asia (THREE COUNTRIES) but woe betide you if you're three millimetres out in the USA. Still, I did get to super-hard level (yes I did) where I was very much helped by all the questions being placed in Algeria. Happily I know where that is. Can anyone beat 250?
Try it. Donate some water to Water Aid, one of my favourite charities. They do the dirty work.
