UNICEF: Children’s lives made better by technology

Technology, such as birth certificates generated on cellphones, is helping children live better lives, says UNICEF in its annual State of the World’s Children report. “There are innovative minds and people all over the world that are coming up with solutions that can be game changers in terms of helping children to stay alive and realize their full potential,” says Jaya Murthy, UNICEF’s Uganda spokesman. Challenges include child marriage, child labor and discrimination against disabled children. http://www.unicef.org/sowc2014/numbers/
