An innovative project that has given former child soldiers access to education in Sudan shows the value of embracing technology for sustainable development, the UN said on Thursday.

According to the UN Children's Fund UNICEF, these vulnerable youngsters have been able to follow the country's national curriculum using solar-powered electronic tablets.

The initiative is being rolled out to displaced communities in Jordan, Lebanon and Greece, as UNICEF's Sally Burnheim told Daniel Johnson.
