About

Humango will simulate sustainable community development; utilizing advertisement and in-app purchase income to literally build sustainable communities.

The hope is that the app will be highly recreational, educational, and inspirational.

The player will connect with a specific community, using their recreational time and resources to make a positive impact on the environment of that community. This will be reinforced with video from the communities that will be impacted by the app. Videos will include testimonies from students and families, videos of structural and domestic progress, and adventure videos of players traveling to location. This will allow the opportunity to see where the in-app purchases go and interaction with a global community of Purpose Players. This will all make up the DNA of Humango. 

As the game progresses, there will be opportunity for further development. As issues like clean drinking water, nourishment, hygiene, shelter and education are addressed, the community becomes stronger and more efficient.

This management can come in the form of well water (bore hole)
or rain run-off


Well

• Hand pump (10% faster hydration)
• Electric pump (50% faster hydration)
• Pipes to structure or location (less travel for location)
• Filtration will allow hydration to last longer

Rain water
• Can be used for cleaning
• Gutters can direct water to location
• Rain barrels and containers can be gravity fed
• Pumps and pipes can expand the use of rainwater
• Use of rainwater can go to animals, plants, toilets, showers and more
• It can be filtered for drinking if needed

Plants
• Begin with traditional farming
• Gathering fruit and vegetables from plants and trees
• Utilize excess rain water to grow faster food
• Extra produce can be sold at market for mango coins
• The more nutritious the meal, the healthier the kids
• Eventual ability to fertilize soil with compost and fertilizer

Animals

• Cows, goats, chickens and other animals can be purchased
• Animal husbandry will be introduced along with grazing practices
• This will grow the herd and provide a steady supply of protein
• Management Intensive Grazing will allow for more bountiful harvests of meat

Preparation
• Ease and location of meal prep will streamline the progress of the game
• Running water at kitchen site
• Filtration at kitchen site
• Structure of kitchen site

Mango Trees / Crops
Mango Trees / Crops

• Outhouses with simple hole in the ground is the beginning structure.
• Toilets would greatly lower sickness rate
• Showers could be used via rainwater will also lower sickness rate
• Shoes for the students
• Clothes
• Ability to regularly clean the bathroom areas will cut down on disease.

• As the game progresses, shelter can become larger and more useful.
• Teacher’s quarters, dorms, classroom, mess halls, shower houses and community centers all have benefits within a healthy, developing community.
• Technology, such as electricity, can allow for water pumps to be powered, can provide lighting for the bath houses, dorms and classrooms.
• This provides safety, security and comfort for the students and workers alike

Student Classroom / Dorm
Student Classroom / Dorm

• Education is key for progress!!
• At 10 students graduating 5 days into the game, there will be an opportunity to be placed in a useful position within the community.
• Note: this will only happen with the first 10 in this manner.
• From then on, there will be a grad to profession ratio

• 25 grads – 1 engineer (facilities, solar, plumbing)
• 50 grads – 1 farmer or 1 cook
• 75 grads to 1 teacher
• 100 grads to 1 Doctor
• 250 grads to 1 community director
• As the community grows, more aspects will become self-sufficient, leaving time and resources for development of new communities and eventually in new countries!

• As the school’s compound thrives, the benefits bleed over into the community itself.
• Bathrooms, toilets, and showers can be made available to the community.
• Clean water can be piped into the community.
• A community center can be built for gatherings and celebrations.
• Sporting events to bring the community together.
• Solar power to be used for education of community members.
• Appoint a community director who is a graduate from the school in that community.
• Community trade store - this allows locals to trade, sell, and barter without paying to take products into the city.
• Quicker turnaround means quicker results!

In August of 2017, our paths crossed with an amazing group of people! The Imani Milele Children's Choir from Uganda, Africa. The experience that we had with this group of talented young people had us on a plane to Africa within 4 months! Once we were there, we were in awe of the beauty of the country and the people of Uganda. We also found ourselves in despair over the circumstance and conditions that these children which we love so much have to endure. As we pondered the contrast between our comforts and their challenges, we realized that one of our cultures greatest comforts, could also be one of our cultures greatest tools.........OUR PHONES! So the concept for Humango was born! A game that helps us better understand the circumstance in the third world, but also allows us to do something about it in reality! So here we are........Just 3 dudes and an ever-growing community of world changers!

Risks and challenges

PurposePlay Inc. was born out of a conviction to be more than just a spectator and critic of the conditions of our world. When this happens, it is typical that the one's moving forward will encounter some unchartered territories. We have found this to be very true........ even early on in the process.

Our goal is to utilize technology as a tool to help people. We know the people part pretty well, but the technology was new to us. That's why we are partnering with Underbite Games! We don't have to know everything about the tech, because they do!

In building communities, we find that the best way is to work in a community of people that each something different to the mix! As this community grows, so does the vision.

Anytime the vision is as big as the world.................. scaling will be something that we may need to pay close attention to. As this community of world changers expands, then we believe that people who share our conviction to be more than spectators, will take steps alongside us to assure that the world becomes a place of hope for everyone!
