Impact Initiative

Our collective intention to drive meaningful change, and aims to harness this potential by scaling AI-driven projects globally, rescuing the SDGs.

AI holds the promise of
leveling the playing field

The AI for Good Impact Initiative is our collective intention to drive meaningful change through the implementation of RESOLUTION 214 (BUCHAREST, 2022) ‘Artificial Intelligence technologies and telecommunications/ICTs’ and build a network of supporters to help fund and resource our AI for Good activities globally

We are seeking to ensure application of AI for Good activities across all SDGs. Our goal is to raise at least 20,000,000 CHF annually to achieve scale.

Contributors have the choice to direct funds specific AI projects, SDG-focused areas, or bring their own projects that would benefit from connections and visibility within for Good Community.

Our Objectives


Reflecting the diversity and needs of communities globally.


Growing to address pressing challenges at the pace the world requires.


Open models that can be replicated across different regions and sectors.


Ensuring tight alignment with all SDGs goals and targets


Ensuring transparent, quantifiable impact that aligns with the SDGs across all regions.

At the recent AI for Good Global Summit, the ITU Secretary-General issued a compelling call to action, emphasizing the urgent need for global collaboration to rescue the SDGs.

Highlighting the critical importance of these goals in addressing pressing global challenges such as poverty, inequality, climate change, and more, the Secretary-General has urged world leaders, organizations, and citizens alike to come together in a united effort.
