Building Technology Solutions for Social Impact
Enabling NGOs to get the most out of technology
We help non-profits seeking technology and data assistance by building open source low-cost technology solutions like Glific and Development Data Platform and by placing seasoned technology professionals at NGOs with our Fractional CxO Program
There is a technology gap in the non-profits sector across multiple dimensions
Our Solution – Tech4Dev Initiative
We equip non-profits with the technology they need to amplify their impact
We aim to build an ecosystem of software, data & design companies, NGO partners, and foundations working towards creating social impact in developing countries through our Tech4Dev Initiative.
The initiative aims to integrate technology + data into development program design to build scalable and sustainable solutions. We aim to build resilience amongst NGOs to expand their vision while leveraging technology + data in India and beyond.
No Code WhatsApp Chatbot Builder for NGOs
Glific enables NGOs to easily scale to thousands of conversations a day with few staff. It enables NGOs to analyze their interaction, visualize & measure their impact.
Glific has been deployed by NGOs supporting various SDGs, such as
- to send learning resources and activity based evaluation for education programs
- for career counseling
- to disseminate farming advice
- as a helpline for intellectual and developmental disabilities
Fractional CxO Program
Fractional CxO program assists NGOs with a combination of their technology strategy, technology/data needs by placing a seasoned technology professional at the NGO for 3 – 9 months.
Tech4Dev technologist associates act as Fractional CTOs to evaluate technology needs, help recruit technology personnel and to recommend and evaluate a reliable and proven software firm to carry out software projects.
We believe this program will also help NGO participants to demonstrate to their funders that they have a reliable organization helping them with capacity building.
Development Data Platform
The Development Data Platform (DDP) provides a low maintenance, low cost SaaS data platform to tackle data storage and visualisation.
This platform came about from our experience of working with multiple organizations in the Indian NGO ecosystem where we saw challenges in disjointed data sources. It was influenced by how we can work with NGOs to use data in a “smart” manner to provide better, deeper and more meaningful insights for greater impact.
DDP aims to satisfy the analysis and visualisation needs across most NGOs.
We are currently in beta mode piloting with a few non-profit organisations.
Dev Data Platform – January Recap
Here I’m sitting near marine drive writing this blog and thinking about all the conversations I had with NGOs over the last two weeks. I have a lot to talk about regarding what we’re doing with the Data Platform. We had our third sprint with NGOs this year and for me personally, this was different…
Goalkeep at the Tech4Dev Sprint Jan 2023
How do we build data culture within nonprofits, and what does that even mean? … is a question we have been obsessing over at Goalkeep this past year. We’ve figured that one key element of data culture is the ability to put data into the hands of individuals and teams with minimal repetitive effort. But…
Goa: My First Sprint
I almost didn’t make it to this sprint, but more on that later. I did make it to Goa and Goa didn’t disappoint. The sprint location was wonderful, the weather was gorgeous and beach shacks were close by for local food and drinks. The cool, crisp mornings and stunning sunsets book-ended the day nicely. We…
