Non Profits can use technology to simplify their day to day Operations like financial compliance, communications, donor management, reporting, project management, etc. Technology can help them build strong Data & MIS systems 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 - 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 no capacity building and peer networking opportunities. Let's change that!
Tech4Good Fellows are staff working in ngos across India. After a rigorous selection process - they are skilling begins with trainings in carefully curated courseware from our master trainers. Fellows can access up to USD 150K/year worth of free and discounted software during this phase.
Fellows are connected with Tech4Good Coaches to help them understand what is happening outside in the ever changing technology landscape, set goals for themselves and guide, motivate them to reach those goals. They connect with other Tech4Good Fellows and becoming part of the community.
Fellows are encouraged to lead or support Local #Tech4Good Chapters with support from us. Chapters are hubs for technology capacity building of ngos in a region. In 2018 local chapters generated 125 Pledges (Eg: I will build a website for my organisation with online payment integration) from 110 participants from 90 NGOs in 5 cities. 2019 will mark the launch our weekly online training modules.
We understand that challenges happen not in trainings but on the field. Our Helpdesk Platform powered by Fellows, Coaches, Trainers and our own staff provides last mile support that helps completion of Tech4Good pledges into Actions for their mission. (Eg: Website online with a fully functioning online payment integration). It is these actions that count as Impact for us.
