Mission

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

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 India Fellowship builds capacity of IT staff by skilling, netwoking and mentoring.

  • 1. Skilling

    Our 3 month fellowship begins with a week in Bengaluru to meet with mentors, learn hard skills in latest technology and tools with master trainers, and network with like-minded #Tech4Good Fellows.

  • 2. Networking

    You will join a network of #Tech4Good change makers and connect with other professionals in the Tech4Good ecosystem.

  • 3. Mentoring

    We provide ongoing coaching and mentoring for 3 months from our core team as well as advisors from our mentoring partners, based on fellows needs, skills, and preferences.

Tech4Good India Fellowship is completely FREE!

We rely on generous support from our sponsors to cover all costs for the fellows including logistics costs of transport to Bengaluru, Boarding and Lodging, venue, hosting.
