We partner with non-government organisations (NGOs), cooperatives and savings and loans groups to distribute technology in the last mile. Our local partners know what technology is needed by the communities they serve, and how much people can afford to pay for it. We work with these local partners to identify the most appropriate technology for their communities, and to design ways to get this technology into the hands of the people who need it the most. Our local partners are a vital link in the supply chain of technology to last mile communities, and in the feedback loop to technology producers and to donors. Their reports and photos help technology producers refine their products, and help donors see the impact of their donation.
