Capacity building program for IT staff from NGOs in India. Next Classroom in Bangalore From January 18 to 22, 2018
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.
Fellows are invited to Bangalore for 5 days of classrooms with master trainers. Fundamentals of digital and technology relevant to non profit operations and challenges.
Fellows will learn and work together. Tech4good peer networks gives them lifelong support.
A personal mentor will be assigned to each fellow for 3 months to help them.
We rely on generous support from our Sponsors to cover all costs for the fellows including logistics costs of transport to Bangalore, Boarding and Lodging, venue, hosting.
Currently Azim Premji Philanthropic Initiatives.
