Apply Now: Yoti Humanitarian Technology Support Programme

humanitarian tech support

Many humanitarian organisations (and humanitarian-focused startups) are turning to a wide variety of technologies to give them the kind of impact they’re going to need if they’re to put any kind of dent in urban displacement, conflict, antibiotic resistance to infectious disease, gang violence, extremism and climate change. Especially for one in every two people globally lives on less than $5.50 a day.

Despite the promise, though, many technology-focused humanitarian startups fail for all sorts of reasons. It doesn’t help that many of the biggest problems are found in the most challenging of places, and that many of the newest, shiny tech innovations might also struggle to work there.

On top of that, few humanitarian organisations or socially-focused tech startups  – particularly the smaller ones – have the kind of all-round expertise required to make their projects a success. Humanitarian problems are often as complex, if not more so, than the technologies organisations deploy to solve them.

Yoti Humanitarian Tech Support Programme

The Yoti Humanitarian Tech Support Programme can fill in humanitarian organisations’ skills gaps by helping them better understand the human, technical and environmental context of the work they’re undertaking, and to help them better design, test and deploy their solutions.
