Nafundi designs, builds, deploys, and supports mobile data collection software.
We started Open Data Kit, the best way to collect data on a mobile device.
We've used Open Data Kit for years and we love it. Our latest project needed new features that were not in ODK Collect and so we came to Nafundi for help. We knew it would be a lot of work in a short amount of time but they delivered big time. If you need changes to ODK done well and on time, I can't recommend Nafundi enough.

I've been working with Nafundi's founders since 2009. From the Amazon rain forest to the heart of Africa, they have a rare ability to discern the essence of a problem and deliver solutions that are easy to use, work at scale, and make a difference.
Being able to quickly collect and process data is vital to public health programs. We've been working with Nafundi for years, and they are great at solving the pain points (on mobile and desktop) we come across. They work quickly, solve problems the first time, and give us the confidence we need to scale. We could not do our work without Nafundi.

Evaluating global health programs is an intensive process of collecting, organizing, cleaning, and analyzing data. Population Council, Marie Stopes Uganda, and Gobee Group use mobile phones and Open Data Kit to streamline the process.
ODK Briefcase 1.4.4 introduces a new Command Line Interface (CLI) that will help you automate downloading forms from ODK Aggregate (or ODK Collect) and exporting the forms to an Excel-compatible format like CSV. It can even decrypt those forms if they are encrypted. Read more.
On the eastern edge of the Democratic Republic of Congo lies Virunga National Park, home to the endangered mountain gorilla. The biggest risk to the gorillas' habitat is illegal logging for firewood, and data collection plays a crucial role in helping to protect that habitat. Read more.
Feed the Future (FTF) is the U.S. Government's global hunger and food security initiative. The USAID-funded initiative focuses on twelve countries in Africa, four in Asia, and three in Latin America and the Caribbean. An initiative of this size requires large scale monitoring and evaluation, and Nafundi plays an important role in enabling faster turnaround times and greater standardization among the country-specific surveys that FTF uses.
