Reaching the Marginalized in Sudan
Child Friendly Technology's Call for Input

Over the next several weeks we will be using this blog to tell the stories of Technology for Development efforts happening in UNICEF country offices – as a complement to internal discussions, we will post links and resources on this site as a way to share some past successes and failure. If you would like to add a story please DM/@/email us and we’ll put it in the schedule.
