The World Bank Institute, the learning arm of the World Bank, has launched an online computer game called EVOKE, designed to get young people involved in finding solutions to urgent problems like hunger, poverty and education. The winners of the ten week game could be mentored by social innovators and business leaders and win a trip to a conference in Washington DC.
Bob Hawkins, the producer of the game says:
"We have designed the game so that it is compatible with Opera Mini which is a browser that you can use on your cell phones," he said. "We mirror the content into Facebook which is a very popular application for students and young people on their mobile phone."
Opera Mini is huge in Africa and it's cool to see games and Web sites render perfectly in Opera Mini.
