UNICEF and Google work together to develop solutions to some of the world’s toughest challenges. We see the power in access to information and connectivity at scale, and leveraging data, expertise and connections to increase access to education, health, disaster relief, etc. in the most vulnerable communities around the world.
During times of crisis, Google provides critical support for UNICEF’s response and recovery efforts through Google.org and workplace giving campaigns.
Google has supported UNICEF’s response and recovery efforts in Nepal, Brazil, and Colombia, and most recently, in Mexico and the Caribbean.
Reaching Every Child with Immunizations
Since 2015, Google employees have participated in an annual Flu Shot Campaign with UNICEF, which has raised over $600,000 for UNICEF’s immunization program around the world. For each flu shot, Googlers were asked to donate between $25-30, matched by Google.org, to support routine immunizations for children.
Google Fighting Zika
In 2016, Google.org announced a $1 million donation to UNICEF to fight the spread of the Zika virus. Technical Google volunteers worked with UNICEF to build a platform that can map and anticipate outbreaks of the virus, as well as to develop technology that is applicable both to Zika now and other health emergencies in the future.
With the support of Google.org, UNICEF reached millions of people with critical information on staying safe.
