Intern, Innovation Team, Beijing, China

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives.

To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up.

For every child, innovations

The UNICEF Innovation Fund has been designed to finance early stage, open-source technology that can benefit children. The core motivation of the Innovation Fund is to identify clusters or portfolios of initiatives around emerging technology so that UNICEF can both shape markets and also learn about and guide these technologies to benefit children.

We invest in solutions that can impact the lives of the most vulnerable children. We find these solutions clustered around $100 billion industries in frontier technology spaces, such as : blockchain, UAVs, virtual and augmented reality, artificial intelligence, nano-

satellites and human dynamics.
