Since 2015, UNICEF has partnered with Arm to accelerate the development of new technologies and help the most vulnerable children across the world.

The combination of Arm’s funding, expertise, and network of partners, alongside UNICEF’s convening power and global presence, has enabled us to deliver real social value for children on a broad scale. To date, our partnership has directly benefited over 310,000 children and their families.

In 2018 (our fourth year of partnership) we agreed on an annual extension to build on the successes of the last three years, programmes such as Wearables for Good, and continue to grow our partnership in a new Discover | Act | Inspire strategic framework to better categorise and communicate our work.

This report outlines the achievements of the last 15 months (June 2018 - September 2019) under these strategic pillars.
