We're very excited to announce that Akvo has today joined the OpenGov Hub as the 11th tenant in the space.
Akvo creates open source web and mobile software, and builds networks of partners to facilitate the way in which development aid is allocated and reported. Their aim is to improve the way projects are implemented in some of the poorest parts of the world, making them more effective, efficient, sustainable and visible. Many of their partners focus on water and sanitation, but more recently they also cover health, education, economic development and IT projects. The Akvo system is designed to appeal to a new generation, who want to see online where their money is being spent. In Akvo, money flows quickly because donors choose what to fund and follow progress online. Knowledge is shared and people can use these story lines to build new campaigns and networks.
Welcome, guys! We're so happy to have you.
