How to win the 3rd world farmer game

3rd World Farmer is an online game where you play the role of a poor farmer in Africa trying to survive various natural and man-made calamities. After a few tries, I figured it out and beat the game. I credit my success to my experience in the Peace Corps. Here's what to do:

1. Have as many kids as possible & put to work. Don't bother with school.
2. Build a well as soon as possible.
3. Keep your family healthy.
4. By projects before livestock, buildings, or implements.
5. Don't plant cash crops until you have at least $200.

#1 seems to run counter to most development thinking.
