Stories of innovation

UNICEF’s Global Innovation Centre takes game-changing innovations and deploys them at scale, across multiple countries and contexts. Our goal is to implement and scale global solutions that will help the world’s most vulnerable children, using funds efficiently and effectively.

We ensure that our projects can be easily replicated, set up and utilized anywhere, allowing us to help children and families in the most hard-to-reach places. This approach is economical, adaptable to the local context and open to constant improvement.
