Project Tech4Dev is a group of software firms, ecosystem partners, and funders, initiated by a tech entrepreneur and philanthropist (Donald Lobo) and supported by his private family foundation, The Chintu Gudiya Foundation. This initiative enables organisations to bring technology to the core of programme design and implementation by providing customised tech solutions to nonprofits, at an affordable cost; developing open source solutions that are then made freely available for everyone to access, use, and build on; and creating an ecosystem of software firms and supporting them in developing products targeted specifically for the development sector.
