Challenges to address

The use of mobile phones and social media has grown very rapidly in Cambodia in the past few years yet many Cambodian NGOs do not have the skills or knowledge to effectively use this and other communication tools in their work.

InSTEDD will provide an opportunity for local organisations to familiarise themselves with the solutions and tools available but also an opportunity to answer specific questions and problems to which the developer team will try finding suitable solutions. Selected organisations will get continuous support in developing prototyping and piloting a solution.

Activities

InSTEDD will organise Open Thursday events, open for organisations to visit and learn about available tools and solutions. iCamp events to focus on a particular issue or organisation to generate ideas that could be further developed into a prototype. The project will support ten organisations to develop prototypes, four prototypes will be refined and finally the most promising two will be piloted.
