We build low-cost information systems at scale to share knowledge with the world’s poorest and most disadvantaged people. Our pioneering model of digital development is implemented in collaboration with partner organizations to maximize scale, and we continuously experiment, iterate and gather evidence on impact to improve service delivery and demonstrate our value.
