UNFPA Innovations Challenge for Women 2022

UNFPA Innovations Challenge to Empower Women and Girls is an open opportunity for women to come up with innovation. This challenge will fund female-centered innovations. They aim to continue to develop and deploy innovative solutions that enhance women’s and girls’ empowerment in all of its forms and can help disrupt inequality.

The challenge will offer a mentorship program to help grantees improve their ability to scale their discoveries across underdeveloped countries. As a result, it will establish and foster an ecosystem of mentors, innovators, and important stakeholders who will support the solutions and their long-term viability models.
