What Would You Buy With $50

Last week we linked to a video where several people were questioned about the value of Rs.500. Today, we stumbled across a similar concept.

What would you buy with $50?

We asked this question of more than 100 kids in Uganda, from rural villages to the sprawling capital city. The kids responded with drawings of what they would buy if they had $50. From school fees and banana trees to iPhones and laptops, their drawings receal so much about their aspirations and the obstacles they face.
