The Dubai office of ANCHOVY PLC., was approached to design and build a customized online voting platform for the Arab Parliament for the Child, a council for children’s dialogue and discussion of ministers and decision-makers across 17 countries.

Its role is to offer the children everything they need to be able to grow and progress in their lives, including their participation in society and their contribution to building their country.
