UNICEF Innovation Labs
About the cause
UNICEF's Inovation Labs develop innovative solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges. Through funds raised by Star Wars "Force for Change", dozens of life-changing projects like these will be created and supported in communities across the globe:
• Portable, solar-powered learning kits being built in China, Uganda, and Burundi to ensure underprivileged children in these countries have access to relevant, high-quality educational materials.
• Mobile phone application developed in South Sudan and Uganda, and used in the Philippines, that helps reunite children with their families after an emergency.
• A text messaging solution in Zambia that helps families receive infant medical test results from clinics, in half the time, through mobile phones.
