The English version of the ICT Toolbox for small NGOs is now available!
Last year, CartONG published a study on the use of ICTs by small aid organisations in French as well as a toolbox to help them along in their use of ICTs.
The toolbox was comprised of 26 good practice, tool tip & user feedback sheets which could be used by any small aid organisations wishing to use ICTs and needing guidance to do so.
CartONG received very positive feedback from the humanitarian sector after the publication of the study and toolbox, and have been meaning to extend the outreach of these work tools, in particular in non francophone areas of the world.
Our wonderful CartONG volunteers have helped to translate to English all of the good practice and tool tip sheets, which can therefore be found here as individual one pagers:
