I recently found the game Ayiti: The Cost of Life
. It was created by UNICEF to illustrate how poverty can greatly interfere with a family's ability to educate their children.

I found another game with a similar message: 3rd World Farmer
3rd World Farmer was more interactive and interesting in my opinion, although I'd suggest trying both games if you have the time and patience to do so.
