When did technology start being used for humanitarian purposes? Which digital tools aid organizations should be using? In this blog, you will find 4 easy-to-use and practical digital tools that will help your organization to improve its effectiveness, transparency and impact.
The term "digital humanitarianism" emerged in 2010, in response to the earthquake in Haiti, which was one of the first major disasters to see a large-scale use of digital technology for humanitarian purposes. Volunteers from around the world used social media platforms and other digital tools to help locate missing people, map the damage, and coordinate relief efforts.
What is technology offering to aid organizations 13 years after?
Take a look at the "latest" digital tools that are starting to be part of aid organizations' operations. These tools are nothing but new, but as we saw, not long ago humanitarian aid started to be digital, and our aim is to scale the impact of aid organizations through the digital transformation of core emergency operations. Here we want to share with you 4 digital tools that cannot be missed in your organization.
We understand that humanitarian aid organizations often operate under limited budgets. While financial decisions may follow the principle of "less money, less action," which can have a direct impact on the communities they serve.
At the same time, investing in organizational improvements can lead to better performance and outcomes. That's why we support aid organizations that respond to disasters to outdo their best. We scale the impact of aid organizations during the response to disasters through the digital transformation of their core emergency operations. We provide support and complete digital transformation during the disaster stage as well as in preparedness, and recovery.
We simply serve as a means for supporting the crucial work carried out by organizations around the world, enabling them to generate greater and more meaningful impacts. Take a look at some of our recent projects here, and contact us if you think we can help you too.
