Open Data Kit (ODK) is a free and open source set of tools for social good organizations to collect data quickly, accurately, offline, and at scale. ODK's design enables novice users to collect data in challenging environments and its robustness in these environments has driven the platform's adoption as the de-facto standard for mobile data collection in social good projects.
ODK has been used by thousands of organizations like Red Cross, United Nations, New York City, Carter Center, Jane Goodall Institute, Johns Hopkins University, Gates Foundation, Centers for Disease Control, USAID, and many others. Example projects include gathering real-time election data in emerging democracies, forest monitoring in Indonesia, and tracking polio vaccinations in the Middle East.
Nafundi's mission is to create technologies that improve the lives of the underserved. Our current focus is designing, building, deploying, and supporting open-source mobile data collection systems that work well in challenging environments (e.g., offline villages in rural Kenya, humid rain forests in Brazil, and even the International Space Station).
Nafundi's leadership, Yaw Anokwa and Hélène Martin, are lead maintainers on Open Data Kit and both have deep experience in computer science and global development. They manage a fully distributed team of developers, implementers, and trainers who work across countries and sectors to design, build, deploy and support data collection tools for a wide variety of projects with large social impact.
