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.

The University of Washington's Diamond Awards honor outstanding alumni who have made significant contributions to the field of engineering. Yaw was selected for this award because of his commitment to applying technical expertise to global problems.
Hutan Aceh is home to tigers, elephants, orangutans and rhinos. EIA International and local activists protect this home by documenting forest crimes with Open Data Kit. The geo-tagged forms, rich with photos, provide the evidence needed to save habitat.
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.
A national public health surveillance project started in Jordan introduces case-based, integrated disease surveillance of mental health, non-communicable and communicable diseases, and is built using Open Data Kit.
Nafundi has added new styling options to ODK Collect that let form designers change fonts, colors, sizes, and add clickable links to ODK forms. Styling can be added using Markdown, a popular and easy-to-use markup language. Read more.
For the World Health Organization (WHO) and ministries of health working to combat and forever put an end to the debilitating poliovirus, access to accurate and time-sensitive information makes a world of difference. Open Data Kit (ODK) is currently being used by WHO and governments in several countries across WHO's Eastern Mediterranean and Africa Regions, including Jordan, Somalia, and South Sudan, as a key tool in mass polio vaccination campaign quality control.

After a polio outbreak in October 2013, the nation of Cameroon launched several mass immunization campaigns against the disease. Early campaigns were of poor quality, but after a nationwide, bottom-up "micro-planning" exercise to gather better data on the size and location of the target population, the quality of the campaigns greatly improved and Cameroon's Ministry of Health wanted to build on their success.
