We work across Africa helping governments build transformative and sustainable digital capability at scale. We also help multilateral and global funders, and philanthropies design and fund programmes in new ways, applying agile, iterative and open approaches to increase impact and sustainability.
We combine a global perspective as leaders in digital public services, with our local teams’ deep understanding of regional and national contexts. We have worked for organisations in Sierra Leone, Tunisia, Rwanda, Nigeria, Madagascar and Ethiopia. Our Africa headquarters are in Nigeria.
SOS Children’s Villages, founded in 1949, is the world’s largest non-governmental organization focused on supporting children and young people without parental care, or at risk of losing it.
Child neglect, abuse and abandonment is everywhere. Families are at risk of separation. Locally led, we work in more than 130 countries and territories, including both Israel and Palestine, to strengthen families who are under pressure so they can stay together. When this is not in a child or young person’s best interests, we provide quality care according to their unique needs.
Together with partners, donors, communities, children, young people and families, we enable children to grow up with the bonds they need to develop and become their strongest selves. Children and youth participation are at the core of our mission. And we work on the implementation of digital innovative programmes which can support our mission. Our work is guided by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the UN Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children.
