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

Round 2 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. 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.

Applications for Round 2 opened on 16 July 2018 and closed on 10 August 2018 at 18:00 BST. The programme is currently processing applications, which will be announced in 2019. Follow us here for more information on upcoming funding opportunities in 2019.
