Are you building or already running a startup leveraging VR or AR to teach better in a developing country and supporting UNICEF Mission? UNICEF runs the innovation to help your impact scale. UNICEF is investing in augmented reality/virtual reality prototypes to identify scalable solutions that can solve real problems, strengthen its interventions and provide the same technological advances to children from programme countries as to their peers in other parts of the world.

Fabien Benetou is a European Parliament Innovation Lab WebXR consultant, UNICEF Innovation Fund WebXR technical advisor, and Mozilla Tech Speaker.
