Digitizing Non-profit organizations since 2020
We build digital presence for Non-profit organizations to help them reach out to multiple resources.
Bridging the digital divide in the social sector
1NGO’s vision is to bridge the rising digital divide in the social sector. Less than 0.5% of the NGOs in India have digital presence and hence they remain undiscoverable by the donors. 1NGO democratises opportunities for NGOs by making them digitally discoverable. 1NGO focus sectors include education, empowerment, health, environment, disability, rural development and environment. We currently have built websites for 535 NGOs across the country along with managing to create a social media presence through Facebook for 280 NGOs on our 1NGO platform
Preparing NGOs for a digital centric world
1NGO builds digital assets and inculcates digital literacy and behavioural change among NGOs. 1NGO builds websites and social media presence for NGOs. 1NGO has set out on a mission, in the next 3 years, to build digital presence for 1000 NGOs in each of these 7 sectors - education, women empowerment, child development, health, environment, disability and rural development. By preparing 7000 NGOs to grow in the new digital centric world, 1NGO seeks to touch a million lives in the next 3 years.
Since inception, 1NGO has created websites for 400+ NGOs and social media profiles for over 70 NGOs. We have conducted over 40 digital literacy webinars and workshops with participation from over 300 NGOs. 1NGO assists NGOs to keep an active digital presence through a combination of DIY and assisted solutions.
