Launched in 2016, the Safe Online portfolio has so far mobilized US $83 million, of which US $48 million will be invested in 60 projects with impact in over 70 countries by the end of 2021. The Safe Online investments range from supporting programs at country and regional level as well as large-scale research projects (e.g. Technology Coalition Research Fund), to designing new and scaling-up existing technology-based solutions. Crucially, alongside these investments, Safe Online fosters knowledge generation and collaboration within and between networks to maximize the use of collective resources and ensure investments have a broad impact.

This approach builds on existing evidence, lessons and progress that the Safe Online portfolio of grantees, partners and the wider ecosystem have made in recent years to develop stronger and more coordinated response to online CSEA.
