Score the Goals, An Application by the United Nations

This is the first Windows Phone 7 application by United Nations. It’s an e-book (or e-comicbook to be exact.) Even though this app is not quite fancy, but it is very educational.

The 32-page comic book app features 10 football UN Goodwill Ambassadors, who become shipwrecked on an island on their way to playing an ‘all-star’ charity football game. Whilst on the island, the team has to tackle the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) along their journey towards being rescued. The 10 football players featured in the comic book are Emmanuel Adebayor, Roberto Baggio, Michael Ballack, Iker Casillas, Didier Drogba, Luis Figo, Raúl, Ronaldo, Patrick Vieira, and Zinédine Zidane.

The comic book is primarily aimed at 8-14 year old children and provides a fun interactive way to help them understand, familiarise and reflect about the eight MDGs as well as inviting them to take action through several activities provided in the adjoining educational guide.

Score the Goals is free on marketplace and can be found here.
