Swahili web game to tackle Aids


Children all over the world first learn their ABCs from the school and from the popular computer game. But the United Nations children’s agency (Unicef) has launched the first computer game to educate children’s and grown up people about AIDS. The game called “What would you do?” (Ungefanyaje?) aimed at halting the spread of HIV and AIDS in Africans nations. Africa accounts for most of the world’s 2.3m children who are HIV-positive.

Brilliant idea, hope this sort of game and education program will be translated in other languages too. I would also like to see some famous cartoons and other famous TV programs which are generally aimed for children’s spread some awareness about this deadly disease as most of children do watch cartoon and TV.

The UN estimates that around 80% of all young people do not know how to protect themselves from Aids.
