This is really one cool virtual innovation from the United Nations, more specifically from its arm the United Nations World Food Programme. Been basking on the internet for the last 3 years now due to the nature of my job and have not encountered this online game even from the blog of my townsmate who works with UNAIDS. I’m happy to have found it today from contemplative writer Carl McColman site. Immediately, i installed the toolbar and the banner at my sidebar.
FreeRice was founded in 2007, but was donated to the UN World Food Programme only last March of this year. For its technical web operation, it is partnering with the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.
I got some invites to play Farmville or Fish Aquarium from fellow facebookers. I’ve read lessons from farming through Farmville. Still, i’m not convinced enough to jump on the soil and start milking cows. i know it’s worth the fun except that it’s too time-consuming. Now, i have a better choice at Free Rice with the combo of learning, fun, and helping the hungry for real!
How does Free Rice work? You play the game ranging from vocabulary to grammar to history and every correct answer you get, the name of the sponsor who pays for the rice pops up at the bottom of the screen. The game has different levels of difficulty also. To play the game or learn more about the mechanics of the game with the goal of helping alleviate world hunger, please visit their site. or click the banner at my sidebar.
