KooDooZ is a site that presents children with ways to help tackle humanitarian problems with a game-like experience. Users select from a list of social challenges and identify actionable steps they can take to affect change in a given time frame. The platform tracks evidence that the task is complete by requiring participants to upload videos, podcasts, images or documents detailing their challenge results.
