In 2009, ICTworks was founded by Inveneo, a social enterprise that creates highly sustainable and affordable ICT infrastructure technologies designed specifically for organizations that provide vital services — education, healthcare, economic development — in rural and underserved areas in the developing world.
In 2015, ICTworks became a partnership between Inveneo and FHI 360’s TechLab. FHI 360 is a nonprofit human development organization dedicated to improving lives in lasting ways by advancing integrated, locally driven solutions. The TechLab is FHI 360’s development technology unit, which designs, adapts, and implements scalable technology solutions that increase the efficiency, reach, and impact of the organization’s initiatives.
