Mission

By 2020: Build 300+ #Tech4Good Fellows helping non profits across India use technology effortlessly & confidently.

NGOs and change makers can use technology to simplify their day to day Operations like financial compliance, communications, donor management, reporting, project management, etc. Technology can also help them build strong systems for their important work like Data & MIS to manage beneficiaries, digital innovations to reach more people, GIS tools, fundraising, campaigning, etc. Though there are high quality, FREE, open source and discounted technologies available to them - but they are unable to bridge this technology gap due to lack of internal capacity.

Bridging the Gap: IT staff working in NGOs are highly motivated but under-utilized with few or no capacity building opportunities. Let's change that! and build their confidence to use technology effortlessly for their NGO's mission.

#Tech4Good India Fellowship builds capacity of IT staff working in NGOs by skilling, netwoking and mentoring.

  • 2. Peer Networking
