Delivering IT services for the Non-profit Industry
Innovation is a buzzword throughout development circles from large institutional grant making organizations to grassroots NGOs working in some of the poorest places on earth. Innovation is more often than not a necessity for NGOs with strictly limited funds and resources yet are trying to conquer huge development challenges. Many NGOs are forced to think differently and creatively about how to utilize their resources and environment just to survive.
Increasingly, innovation is something that is inescapable for most NGOs and especially those keen to secure grant based project funding. The huge majority of grant funding opportunities from all around the world demand that applicant NGOs demonstrate that their proposed projects are innovative in one way or another. Whether it is the delivery or services, communications techniques, donor support or the application of technology, NGOs the world over are asked to innovate to secure funding.
