Chennai: Samsung India and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have announced an updated Samsung Global Goals (SGG) app that will empower Indian Galaxy smartphone users to donate to India specific projects that matter to them most. All projects are linked to causes that help further the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals.
The Global Goals address some of the biggest challenges faced around the world, 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 Payments Interface (UPI). These projects include educating young women, feeding school children, protecting children’s rights, supporting the fight against poverty and helping ease the loss of grieving families impacted 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 (Goal 6), Sustainable Cities and Communities (Goal 11) and Responsible Consumption and Production (Goal 12).
Galaxy users will soon be able to also contribute towards UNDP projects in India such as supporting women artisans working on Warli folk paintings, helping Safai Saathis who are frontline sanitation workers, conserving Snow Leopards in the Himalayas, one of the world’s rarest cats, and supporting the lives and livelihoods of people impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
