Tanah: The Tsunami and Earthquake Fighter

Tanah: The Tsunami and Earthquake Fighter

The Tsunami and Earthquake Fighter: In an effort to continue educating children and youth on disaster preparedness and empowering them to be key actors in the field of disaster risk reduction, UNESCO Bangkok has begun development of a sequel of Sai Fah - Tanah: The Tsunami and Earthquake Fighter - with support from American Red Cross and USAID as well as UNESCO Kathmandu Office. The second version of the game focuses on offering lessons on earthquake and tsunami safety drawn from non-game contexts such as the Indian Ocean Earthquake and Tsunami in 2004. The application was designed to be available in different languages including Bahasa Indonesian, English and Nepalese. It was released in December 2015 and a launching event was organized in Jakarta, Indonesia in January 2016, in order to commemorate the tragedy that occurred in Indonesia in 2004. The project is made possible through generous support from American Red Cross and USAID.  As of Jan 2016,  Tanah was downloaded more than 43,000 and became No. 1 Education Application in iOS in Dec 2015.
