Hierarchy vs. Agility

Openness and transparency
internally and externally: we work according to the open-source principle to share information, IT solutions, and developments with as many people as possible; internally, we strive for transparency and maximum feedback.
We have several projects run by our members and partner teams, mainly focused on information aggregation, Telegram solutions, visualizing data, and facilitating networking.

Most of the work done by digital volunteers remains unnamed, but behind every product, there is a particular person who worked hard in their free time to get the project further. Our projects have brought together a huge number of people of different nationalities from different countries, both representatives of various NGOs and individual volunteers. THANK YOU! ❤️
