DevInfo GameWorks: Changing the World One Game at a Time

Over one billion people on our planet live on less than $1.00 a day. More than 115 million children are denied the right to go to school. 30,000 children die each day from preventable diseases. Through the development of a software gaming engine that supports the creation, exchange, and play of games based on robust UN development data, DevInfo GameWorks brings wide-ranging information on the condition of humanity to young people in an engaging, social way.
