What is the Infrastructure for Good?
By Infrastructure for Good we understand the body of open source digital solutions that are built and integrated strategically into ecosystems meant to tackle a critical global issue and made available as such on a continuous basis to NGOs all over the world in order to grow their effectiveness and response capacity.
Because good technology deployed in a timely fashion saves lives. But isolated efforts cannot solve global problems. Hence an urgent need to develop a global Infrastructure for Good to tackle the major challenges of our time.
By putting together coherent ecosystems that offer a 360 degree response to our global issues we transform disparate digital solutions into an Infrastructure for Good, exponentially increasing their potential to help.
Critical support for Ukraine
Offering safe access to housing and vital resources, enabling access to timely information and ensuring health services for the chronically ill, our tools have offered critical support for over 1 million refugees so far.
Who we help
Civil society works tirelessly to make the world better for all of us. Equipping civil society, no matter its size or geography, with the Civic Infrastructure they need will hugely grow their capacity to help. Be it digital case management systems for the chronically ill, to communications for the vulnerable or sensors to collect better data, technology can help solve global problems and we want to make sure that those on the frontline of making our world better have access to it.
It is always all about the end beneficiary. Well built and deployed technology can save lives and act as an impact multiplier. We make sure that the vital digital tools from around the world are consolidated into a coherent Civic Infrastructure that helps civil society organizations intervene much more impactfully. This translates into better, safer and more efficient services that reach exponentially more people on the ground changing their lives for the better.
Billions of USD have been spent globally in the last decade on building technology for social good. Despite producing some amazing tools, the impact of this investment is lagging behind expectations and potential due to two blindspots: the crushing cost of maintenance and lack of global consolidation mechanisms. The model of Commit Global sets to strategically solve these issues and by doing so salvage, preserve and scale the best results of this investment.
Civic Tech Makers
By taking the crippling burden of maintenance off their shoulders we ensure they can focus on the community and innovative side of their work. We also ensure that no organization that has built a vital piece of technology for social good will ever have to take the hard decision to discontinue that tool due to lack of capacity. Most importantly, we ensure that the vital tools they created get to help as many people as possible around the globe.
