CREATED WITH FUGEES FAMILY, INC.

SERVICES: GAME DESIGN, UX RESEARCH


In December 2021, Luma Mufleh, founder and director of Fugees Family, approached iThrive Games and shared a desire to co-create with students a game that highlighted their expertise, built empathy, and supported schools across the nation in accepting incoming refugee students. The three-day iThrive Studio held with Fugees Family led to the creation of  Our Threads, a question card game that supports students—refugees and non-refugees—in feeling understood, welcomed, and care for by others. Our Threads is available for purchase here, and all purchases help fund the creation and development of the Fugees students' next game.

"Games are a safe way to learn about something. We want to create empathy, so the games' content needs to come from those with lived experience. The games have to be through the lens of those who've experienced what it's like to be a refugee and enter a new country, school system, community, and lifestyle. And that's why it is super important to bring refugee students into the design."
