The power of technology to aid solution to social issues has long been acknowledged, and NGOs as vehicles of social change and impact are actively using technology and collaborating for bettering the effectiveness of their technology led interventions.
Often, NGOs, who are keen to enhance their tech-based interventions and further the reach of their solution, are not sufficiently equipped or have the knowhow to choose the most suitable options and platforms for their mission needs. With ever changing technology landscape, the design and development skills may not be available to them at desired time period or at the budget allocated for the purpose.
Availability of technology consulting and support from the Technology leaders can be a great boost for NGOs in fulfilling this need.
