COVID-19 has highlighted the digital gap within and across countries and regions, emphasizing the importance of access to digital platforms and services in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The crisis is having a disproportionately negative impact on young people's education, healthcare, and future prospects.

250 million children and teenagers are still out of school, unable to learn the skills necessary to lift themselves out of poverty. The quality of education and chances for skill development are limited, particularly for girls and children with disabilities.

The epidemic has also worsened inequality in children's and adolescents' access to public health and healthcare services. Children are feeling the consequences of a stretched health system, such as fewer childhood vaccinations.

They must have the potential to help mankind in one of UNICEF's program countries, as well as a working, open source prototype that demonstrates promising results.

The UNICEF Innovation Fund is now looking to invest in firms that are developing software solutions in the following areas employing machine learning, artificial intelligence, or data science technologies:


The Innovation  Fund, established by UNICEF, is dedicated to funding early-stage Open Source technology that can help children. The Innovation Fund's main goal is to identify "clusters" or portfolios of programs centered on developing technology so that UNICEF can share markets while also learning about and guiding these innovations for the benefit of children.
