Digital Volunteers

is a union of people and organizations that coordinate and offer digital solutions to support volunteers´ efforts to help those in need.

Our aim

is to help people affected by war and to facilitate the work of volunteers. All decisions and progress of projects should be judged against the purpose of DV, not personal interests.

Taboo

we do not incite national hatred, we do not engage in political actions, and we do not supply arms or dual-use goods.

Hierarchy vs. Agility

we operate according to the principle of equality and self-organisation, for administrative matters and official partnerships – Digitalista e.V. was established.

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.


Our Projects

We have several projects run by our members and partner teams, mainly focused on information aggregation, Telegram solutions, visualizing data, and facilitating networking. We also gather information on other significant projects in fields like matching solutions, apps, offline help, etc. so that we could better see and fulfil the potential for synergy.

Our team

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! ❤️
