End Violence Against Children: Inviting applications for ‘2019 Open Call: Request For Expressions of Interest’ focused on solutions that leverage existing and new technologies to prevent and combat online child sexual exploitation and abuse.

Funding brief: The End Violence Fund is requesting Expressions of Interest focused on solutions that leverage existing and new technologies to prevent and combat online child sexual exploitation and abuse. Total funds to be awarded through this open call is approximately US$13 million. *

The Fund will explore scaling/adapting existing solutions and developing new technologies, using tools such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, blockchain, virtual reality and other innovative solutions that have the potential to enhance detection and response to online child sexual exploitation and abuse and prevent known and emerging threats.
* The total amount to be awarded will depend on the quality and volume of received applications i.e. the Fund may decide to slightly increase or lower the amount if specific opportunities arise or as a result of the initial assessment of applications.

They are looking for solutions that can help achieve one or more of the four objectives below:
(1) Detect, remove and report images and videos with sexual content or acts involving children and adolescents (often referred to as child sexual abuse material, or CSAM).
(2) Block adults’ access to children on digital platforms intended to sexually abuse them (usually referred to as online sexual grooming or solicitation).
(3) Stop live-streaming of child sexual abuse performed in front of a camera (usually referred to as live-streaming of child sexual abuse material).
(4) Prevent online sexual abuse of children before it happens, including prevention and solutions that directly target online child sex offenders and adults with a sexual interest in children.

The End Violence 2019 open call funding will be available through two modalities: (a) project grants and (b) equity-free seed investments.

a) Project grants
Funding Focus: Strengthen the use, adaptation and scale-up of existing technology solutions
b) Equity-free seed investments

As in previous years, they will actively seek applications from civil society organisations, non-governmental organisations, international organisations, research institutes and academic institutions for the grant portion of this funding. In addition, for the first time in the Fund’s history, they will identify a small cohort of technology companies working on solutions for the prevention of online child sexual exploitation and abuse for our equity-free seed investments.
