UNICEF operates in 190 countries worldwide, working to save children’s lives, defend their rights, and help them fulfill their true potential.
TIME Magazine named Kid Power among the 25 Best Inventions of 2016. “One in four American children doesn’t get enough exercise, and 1 in 4 children globally doesn’t get enough food. UNICEF’s Fitbit-like Kid Power Band, aims to address both problems at once. Its mobile app encourages kids to be physically active with videos from stars like Pink and Alex Morgan. Once they meet step goals, it awards them points, which translate to real food packages that UNICEF sends to malnourished children all over the globe.”
Teravision’s mobile app development team got involved to help build the Kid Power App that connects to these wearable bands.
