Building Community Resilience in Malawi

Arm Limited

Client: UNICEF United Kingdom

Arm and UNICEF UK entered a partnership in 2015, in collaboration with UNICEF’s Office of Innovation, to harness the power of technology to help the most vulnerable children across the world. UNICEF and Arm work together to connect young people to the benefits of technology and close the digital divide. The outline of this partnership aligns with the World Economic Forum 2030 vision that highlighted the promising power of technology to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals, working with governments, global innovator community and young people, this partnership brings technology solutions from concept to scale.

A focus of the Arm-UNICEF partnership is the programme ‘Building Community Resilience in Malawi’, which highlights how Arm use technology to accelerate positive change for children, young people, and their families. Malawi is one of the world’s poorest nations, with a predominantly rural population that have limited access to the Internet and connectivity, impacting their access to education and information. This programme seeks to provide equitable access to world-class digital learning solutions and simultaneously empower communities to use these solutions to anticipate and mitigate the impacts of climate disasters in Malawi.
