Samsung and UNDP launched app that will enable Indian Galaxy smartphone users to help achieve UN SDGs


Samsung India and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) announced an update to the Samsung Global Goals (SGG) app that will allow Indian Galaxy smartphone users to donate to India for specific projects that matter most to them. All projects are linked to causes that help advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or global goals.
The global goals address some of the biggest challenges the world faces, including those related to inequality, climate and environmental degradation, and education.
With the updated SGG app, Galaxy users in India will now be able to donate to projects using the Unified Payment Interface (UPI). These projects include educating young women, feeding schoolchildren, protecting children’s rights, supporting the fight against poverty and helping alleviate the loss of bereaved families affected by Covid-19. The projects listed on the app support global goals such as No Poverty (Goal 1), Zero Hunger (Goal 2), Good Health and Well-Being (Goal 3), Quality Education (Goal 4), Clean Water and sanitation (Objective 6), Sustainable cities and communities (Objective 11) and Responsible consumption and production (Objective 12).
Galaxy users will soon also be able to contribute to UNDP projects in India, such as supporting women artisans working on Warli folk paintings, helping Safai Saathis who are frontline sanitation workers, leopard conservation snow in the Himalayas, one of the rarest cats in the world, and support the lives and livelihoods of those affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
To raise awareness of the Global Goals, actress Alia Bhatt, who uses Samsung Galaxy Z Series foldable smartphones, will work with Samsung India and use foldable devices to contribute to relevant causes in India through the SGG app.
This Samsung sustainability initiative will help bring people together around the Global Goals. Samsung is encouraging Galaxy users to make an impact by taking small, individual actions that contribute to meaningful collective change and greater societal good. It empowers the large cohort of Generation Z and Generation Y for whom giving back to society is a way of life and aims to make them advocates for the SDGs.
“I am proud to be with Samsung to help people have easy access to contribute to the global goals and be able to effect change using technology. This partnership with Samsung is a collective effort to help. I am very sure that together we will leverage our resources and our scaling up efforts to raise funds to be donated to relevant causes in India through the Samsung Global Goals app ”, says Alia Bhatt.
“At Samsung, we believe in harnessing the power of technology to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges. Samsung’s updated Global Goals app will now provide Galaxy smartphone users in India, including Gen Z and Millennials, with an easy way to learn about the Global Goals and support the causes in India that are most important to them. The app reinforces our vision of #PoweringDigitalIndia which aims to empower the next generation of young Indians ”, Partha Ghosh, vice president and head of corporate citizenship, Samsung India, said.
“This partnership between UNDP and Samsung will inspire more people in India to take individual action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Such technological innovations are essential to enable a collective impact and will help us to leave a fairer and more sustainable planet for future generations ”, said Shoko Noda, UNDP Resident Representative in India.
The Samsung Global Goals app, an education and giving-based mobile app, offers users a range of ways to support and give back to the Global Goals. Users can interact with short ads to generate revenue for UNDP and use wallpapers to increase ad revenue while the phone is charging. To help maximize the impact of these small acts, Samsung pays out all of the profits through in-app ads.
Developed in 2015, the 17 Global Goals were set by the United Nations General Assembly and endorsed by world leaders to help tackle some of the planet’s most pressing challenges. It is a set of 17 interconnected goals that provide a plan for a better future for all by 2030.
The Samsung Global Goals app, which launched in 2019 as a partnership between Samsung and UNDP, offers simple ways to help raise awareness of the Global Goals. The app allows people to take small steps to create change through direct donations or something as simple as initiating an advertisement.
The Samsung Global Goals app is currently installed on 170 million devices worldwide, making it the world’s largest charity app. So far, the app has raised $ 1.5 million for the Global Goals.
