UNICEF - for United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund - is a UN agency, created in 1946, headquartered in New York, USA. It is responsible for protecting children's rights, meeting their basic needs and ensuring their full development throughout the world. UNICEF is active in more than 190 developing countries. Around the world, their mission is structured around 7 interrelated areas, all of which are essential to the healthy development of children: health, HIV-AIDS, water, sanitation and hygiene, nutrition, protection, education, and social inclusion.
CartONG, in consortium with MapAction, has been selected by UNICEF for a long-term agreement, to provide GIS & IM support to their operations around the world from 2020 to 2022. Working with UNICEF’s headquarters, country offices and partners in different parts of the globe, we focus on helping with geospatial data collection and management, mapping, knowledge management and capacity building.
CartONG was asked to create a COVID-19 hotline for UNICEF's operations that need support with small aspects that don't fall under a full new contract. This hotline is managed by UNICEF headquarters in New York. A process has been set up to assess if a request from a UNICEF operation would be eligible under the said hotline.
In 2020, CartONG started working on a PowerBI Dashboard for the Philippines' operations of UNICEF. To learn more about this project, please check out our 2020 Annual Report.
