The Devices for Impact project listings are now live at the NetHope Solutions Center. These listings are meant to showcase projects and programs using internet-connected devices for positive impact in humanitarian aid, international development, and conservation. This platform is dedicated to collaboration between program managers, donors, and interested partners to help these projects move closer to their goals.
Devices for Impact came to be as a result of a collective impact subgrant program for nonprofits that can advance their respective missions through the use of phones, tablets, and other hardware. NetHope received a huge response to that subgrant program, and selected 17 award winners. Still, we wanted to highlight the many other worthy programs using devices in their work, and hence, Devices for Impact was born.
Our first call for projects produced close to 100 responses from organizations working in locations that span the globe. Their efforts include sectors such as education, health, financial enablement, agriculture, and many others.
I’m an interested potential partner/donor and want to learn more. What do I do?
