NetHope is the only consortium providing mobile and fixed Information Technology (IT) solutions to international agencies working in a development capacity or humanitarian relief.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
IT found in advanced countries offers breakthrough solutions in humanitarian aid and development efforts in struggling communities. When disaster strikes, communications are often inoperable. A vital requirement for a nation in crisis becomes the coordination of aid. Phase Two enables NGOs to efficiently serve communities in East, West and Southern Africa who suffer from poor nutrition, infant mortality, lack of food, water, education or healthcare, HIV/AIDS or from natural or manmade disasters
How will this project solve this problem?
NetHope identifies field IT hardware and software requirements, supervises material deployment, trains staff, monitors and evaluates, and providing simple but long-term solutions for voice and data IT in everyday development or disaster areas.
Potential Long Term Impact
Leverage experience and lessons learned to enhance the IT impact of NGOs in 21 African countries. NetReliefKit provides IT for disaster situations. Software applications develop e-Learning solutions and sets standards.
