Ideas to ‘improve children’s lives’

UNICEF has welcomed six tech startups to a programme that supports the development of solutions that can ‘improve children’s lives’.

The six are developing a range of products. Ideasis – for example, is pioneering a virtual reality tool that can help young people overcome phobias and improve their social skills. While CIREHA is developing Cboard, ‘an application allowing those with speech and language impairments to communicate by symbols and text-to-speech’.

All six will now receive 12 months of investment and technical support to advance their innovations.

The charity’s innovation fund was established ‘to quickly assess, fund and grow open-source solutions that can improve children’s lives’. It accepts applications on a rolling basis.
