Ever wish you could take games like FarmVille into the real world? Well, a new game called “Raise the Village” allows you to create your own virtual village.

In the game, you can plant crops and help provide basic necessities for the locals. But where other games stop along the intertubes, the money spent on “Raise the Village” goes to support Kapir Atiira in Uganda, an actual village.

For each item that’s bought (let’s say for example a mosquito net), a portion of the money spent will go towards an actual item for Kapir Atiira. You can buy clothes, crops, equipment and more. And even better, all items purchased for the town are local, so you’re contributing to the local economy. Once the items have been purchased, you’ll be able to see pictures of the people benefiting from the game with the items. It’s guiltless game play on your iphone!

Learn more about “Raise the Village” in the video below.
