What We've Worked On

Ensuring better working conditions in the Philippines

Partnering with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) of the Philippines, a country with a labour force of over 40 million, we have modernized their labor law compliance process. Our system replaces the previous paper-based process with a fully electronic system. Equipped with Android tablet computers running our application, field officers are now able to complete their assessments and transfer data to the Department of Labour central servers in a fast and efficient manner. The system has been in operation nationwide since 2013.

Improving development aid coordination

We have supported a coalition of aid organizations in Sri Lanka which includes, UNDP, USAID and GTZ. Our technical solutions allowed them to improve development coordination by identifying tasks carried out by each individual organization. As result, there is more balanced funding across multiple thematic areas, reduced redundancy and no unnecessary overlap between projects.

Enhancing employment prospects across Sri Lanka

We partnered with USAID, Microsoft and other local industry partners in a public private partnership (PPP) multi-stakeholder initiative: the Unlimited Potential Partnership. The initiative was aimed at developing ICT skills in rural and urban youth from across the country. We developed 4 ICT curricula, now in use at various educational institutions as part of the intitative. This initiative has enhanced the employment prospects of thousands across the country.

Getting migrant workers the legal help they need

We work with the Migration Project of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) implemented by Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation in Sri Lanka. The Migration Project provides free legal services to migrant workers. Our technology enables disparate legal aid providers to coordinate their work, share information and manage critical project information.

Helping free and fair elections with crowdsourced monitoring

We supported Transparency International and the Elections Commission of Maldives to track election violations and complaints during the Presidential and Parliamentary elections, crowdsourced over SMS from the public and from hundreds of election monitors.

Supporting post-tsunami reconstruction efforts

Following the deadly 2005 tsunami, we assisted the IFRC and it’s Participating National Societies in their reconstruction efforts. Our technical solutions gave them the ability to monitor and coordinate their programs with effective progress monitoring and budget management.

Supporting efforts to safeguard the rights of children

We connected the various district offices of Save The Children in Sri Lanka with it’s headquarters located in Colombo. Our system gave them the ability to easily monitor and evaluate the progress of their programs across Sri Lanka. This was done by consolidating reports and powerful data analytics.

Helping give victims of human trafficking a new chance in life

Prerana and 14 other civil society agencies, aim to stop human trafficking in the state of Maharashtra, India. We supported their efforts to provide rehabilitation and reintegration services for victims of human trafficking. These efforts include counselling, legal assistance and vocational training. We did this by helping them coordinate and collaborate between disparate, small civil society groups working for the benefit of trafficking victims in the State.

Creating job opportunities in the BPO industry

An initiative that was a partnership between leading private sector companies such as Microsoft and public industry associations such as SLASSCOM. We helped provide customized training in ICT and other non-technical skills required for entry level positions in the BPO industry. It has succeeded in generating employment opportunities, promoting industry expertise and fostering partnerships between employers and trainers.

Understanding voting patterns at the local level

We have worked alongside the National Democratic Institute (NDI), as part of a USAID local governance initiative to analyze voting patterns covering the parliamentary elections in Sri Lanka over the last 25 years. Our web application analysed the voting data of all major political parties and visualized the voting patterns using maps and charts. By understanding the voting patterns of their constituencies, political parties have been able to improve their strategies for engaging with their constituents.

Enhancing last mile connectivity in rural SL

Collaborating with Synergy Strategies Group, we implemented USAID’s Last Mile Initiative in Sri Lanka in a public private partnership. The Last Mile Initiative aims to provide provide internet connectivity to rural communities. We worked alongside many local and global private sector entities, including Microsoft, Qualcomm and Dialog Axiata, we set up 50 multi-service telecenters in rural areas.
