Help NGOs build digital solutions for a humanitarian crisis

Technology performs best when it’s built together and used together to better define its purpose and impact. 70% of employees said technology improved collaboration and 83% of employees rely on using technology for collaboration.[1] This means technology has the power to help individuals and organisations.

For example, NGOs (non-profit organisations) need help from software development companies in a humanitarian crisis. These companies have the power to deliver digital solutions that scale their influence.

What digital solutions are there for a humanitarian crisis?

To create a digital solution for a humanitarian crisis software engineering skills are needed at every stage of the software development lifecycle. This is because new systems, applications and processes are digital solutions for a humanitarian crisis, and they need these skills to be effective.

Examples of digital solutions:

  • Build systems for resource distribution, payments, and donations.
  • Secure data from messaging
  • Develop a mobile app to provide people suffering with real time data about the crisis.

A humanitarian crisis that has benefited from these digital solutions is the Russian Invasion of Ukraine in 2022. Tech To the Rescue launched a “#TechForUkraine” initiative where technology businesses can help charities in Ukraine digitise and scale up the impact they’re having.[2]

How to implement digital solutions?

Software development companies can donate their skills to support humanitarian crisis by working with NGOs.

When software development companies work with NGOs they can understand the problem to best help plan, build and monitor software that will benefit people involved in a humanitarian crisis.

Every software development company has the overall goal to create innovative software for the world to use. This is the opportunity for software development companies to scale software that not only saves businesses but help save lives.

Creating innovative software for the world to use

To create innovative software, software engineering skills need to be introduced and grown at every stage of the software development lifecycle.

Our software engineering apprenticeships give software development companies the opportunity to introduce and grow software engineering skills from level 3 to level 6. As a result, they create innovate software for the world to use that saves businesses and helps saves lives.
