• Mission: “Combining low-tech hardware with sophisticated open-source software, we explore novel ways to both empower young people and improve UNICEFs operations.

We also find ways to integrate appropriate technological systems into existing UNICEF working practices to augment and improve the effectiveness of our operations”• Key Questions: – "How to connect youth who are connected to those who are not?" – "How can the explosion of mobile phone users and networks change they way development work is done?" – "How can UNICEF use the power of ever growing social networks of youth to educate, inform and empower?” www.unicefinnovation.org
