We are a new media and technology consulting company specializing in community-based participatory technologies, especially mapping and citizen journalism, in poor and marginalized regions throughout the world. We help expand the conversation and bridge technology gaps by promoting the use of open data and collaborative platforms. We design projects, tools, and websites to empower people to harness the potential of the internet to guide their own development processes and become more active participants in democracy by amplifying their voices. We help people to use the internet and simple digital tools to report on and speak out about issues they care about by using digital story-telling and community mapping with OpenStreetMap. We support the development of healthy local and community media and news.
