The GSMA Mobile for Humanitarian Innovation Fund aims to promote innovation in the use of mobile technology to address humanitarian challenges.

The GSMA Mobile for Humanitarian Innovation Fund (“the Fund”) aims to promote innovation in the use of mobile technology to address humanitarian challenges. This funding round will test new technical solutions, catalyse ideas to improve or transform institutional systems, and enable solutions to empower, assist or protect individuals and communities affected by complex emergencies and forced displacement.
All grant funded projects are expected to provide examples of best practice and lessons learnt on how mobile technology can address 5 key themes within humanitarian contexts:
1. Mobile Enabled Utilities
2. Gender & Inclusivity
3. Mobile Financial Services
4. Digital Identity
5. Food Security, Adaptation and Resilience to Climate Change
The Fund is especially interested in projects - implemented through collaborative partnerships - that can demonstrate long-term sustainability (i.e. commercial, technical, social, economic, environmental) beyond the lifespan of the grant.

Funding of up to £300,000 per project is available, as well as mentoring, networking, project support and promotion. This funding round will test new technical solutions, catalyse ideas to improve or transform institutional systems, and enable solutions to empower, assist or protect individuals and communities affected by complex emergencies and forced displacement. Project impact should be delivered in Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Middle East and North Africa, or Latin America.
