Extreme poverty is a violation of human rights. CashIn joins the United Nations' first Millennium Development Goal - the eradication of extreme global poverty. The tolerance of individuals living on less than a dollar a day exists because millions of individuals have been conditioned to believe they cannot address such a massive problem. This is not true.

We envision the use of video games to create positive financial and social change in our communities. The technology would be customized to recognize and adapt to the user to create an understanding between the relationship of choices and consequences. Our scripts are created based on real user experiences with the understanding that learning is an interactive experience, so the user is encouraged to frequently participate in order to aid the progression of the storyline and complete the game experience.
Our games provide a safe environment for students to learn without the harsh consequences of an uninformed decision in the real world. Our first set of games will target high school and college students ages 14 - 20 to supplement the gaps that have resulted from the systematic removal of basic economics from the core curriculum of the educational system for the past three generations. This population was selected because of its vulnerability. After graduating from high school, young adults are unprepared for long-term, life-impacting financial decisions including the cost of higher education.
CashIn is committed to helping future generations lead financially responsible lives free of debt and poverty.
