    Force For Change活动后续报导-2014年与联合国儿童基金会的活动回顾

    Young Ugandans gather around to use UNICEF’s unique innovation the solar-powered Digital Drum, at Bosco Youth Centre in Gulu, Uganda.  The Digital Drum was this month chosen as one of Time Magazine’s Best Inventions of 2011.   About 10 per cent of Ugandans currently use the Internet, and a majority of Ugandans live in rural settings with little to no access to information across areas of health, education, job training, and protection from violence and abuse. The poorest, most isolated and vulnerable children and youth are hit hardest from this lack of access when they do not benefit from crucial services and resources that could improve their health, safety and future. In response, UNICEF is developing these rugged computer kiosks that will serve as information access points aimed at youth and their communities.   The computers will be pre-loaded with dynamic multimedia content on health, job training, education opportunities, and other services.  The innovation is being developed and tested in Uganda by UNICEF’s Technology for Development unit. The Digital Drum is a computer built into an oil drum. It was designed by UNICEF Uganda's Technology 4 Development Unit in partnership with other companies. The drums have been installed in youth centers and other areas so that kids can have access to computers. The computers have preloaded content that youth can access. (Bosco Youth Center, Gulu)

    官方Lucasfilm与活动《Star Wars: Force for Change》最大的伙伴—联合国儿童基金会紧密合作,把有需要的儿童放在第一位,并帮助他们在世界各地生活和发展。在2014,活动《Star Wars: Force for Change》筹得4.​​2M美元以支持联合国儿童基金会的社会革新和救援工作;迪士尼更承诺再投入100万美元支持活动。

    基金会有12间创新实验室正致力研究可持续性的方案,为世界各地的儿童解决关键问题,例如儿童保护、营养、水、健康、卫生和教育。官方Lucasfilm亦一起支援项目,聘请及帮助世界各地的青年。以下是部分联合国儿童基金会的成果,他们已将Force For Change的力量交到儿童手上。

    通过U-Report聘请和赋予权利给青少年

    U-Report是一个让青少年讲出他们故事的SMS短讯工具,使政府和社区领导人在第一时间认清社会趋势和问题。 U-Report的例子包括:

    • 在利比里亚,U-Report很快被广泛使用作为通告埃博拉病毒的指标及工具。目前,超过39,000位利比里亚的年轻人在免费流动服务注册,参与每日有关埃博拉病毒的问题及工作,包括埃博拉病毒的症状和体征、正确的洗手方法、安全的殓葬方法和照顾四周幸存者等。
    • 在赞比亚,超过75,000名青年使用U-Report的免费咨询服务以获取有关HIV及爱滋病的资讯。在一般情况下,相比起面对面交流,年轻人更愿意使用匿名短讯服务去查询有关于HIV及爱滋病的资料。在U-Report支援下,青年能使用纯文字方法去查询他们的病情。
    • 在乌干达,超过288,000用户通过U-Report令国家政府立法。当申请的资助不符合申请人实际情况及可接受的范围时,他们会在一星期内通过U-Report表达问题,并令政策改变。 2014年,U-报告存在于12个国家及拥有超过50万青少年在全球注册。在2015年,得到活动《Forc​​e for Change》支持,联合国儿童基金会将推广U-Report到20个国家,预计会接触到超过100万用户。

    青少年计划BYFY(By Youth For Youth)

    联合国儿童基金会的BYFY计划是一个青少年鼓励计划,鼓励他们积极参与自己的社区活动。 BYFY以创新的方式来推动青年的能力,通过工作调整、从实践中学习等,帮助他们在社会变迁中掌握创业的方式。 BYFY建立了弹性和专业的配套,增强在边缘社区的年青人的识别及分析能力,并制定及发展项目去解决这些社会问题。 BYFY计划使青年习得创业和生活技能,领导并改变自己的社区。由2011年开始,BYFY已在科索沃开始运作并帮助了数十万青年人。在2015年,得到Force for Change支持,联合国儿童基金会将推广BYFY计划到其他第三世界国家。

    除了U-Report和BYFY外,活动Force for Change同样支援联合国儿童基金会在其他方面的发展:

    • 两个新的创新的实验室:在坦桑尼亚和哥斯达黎加,加强和青少年之间的连接,为他们的生活问题打造解决方案
    • 2015年,在Force for Change支持下,基金将支援世界各地约30个项目
