We build free online and mobile tools that allow grassroots organizations to easily create their own websites, and provide larger NGOs better tools to support and communicate with these local efforts- We are nearing completion of a very successful first "pilot" year in Tanzania, during which 350 community-based organizations have joined and are using our software, and are preparing to expand into Uganda and Rwanda- We anticipate expanding into more countries in the next several years-

Mission

We build free online and mobile tools that allow grassroots organizations to easily create their own websites, and provide larger NGOs better tools to support and communicate with these local efforts- We are nearing completion of a very successful first "pilot" year in Tanzania, during which 350 community-based organizations have joined and are using our software, and are preparing to expand into Uganda and Rwanda- We anticipate expanding into more countries in the next several years-

Programs

We provide free, easy-to-use, light-weight, mobile optimized, and fully-translated website building and other tools to community-based organizations- Orgs with little computer experience can easily get on the web to gain an online voice- We conduct conferences in which basic computer skills training is provided, and where orgs are assisted in setting up websites- We have begun building tools that larger NGO and reporting agencies are using to communicate with and work with local CBOs
