NGOs and non-profits have become important actors in both the development of public policy and in deployment of technology for positive social change. The Open Society Institute (OSI), a private operating and grantmaking foundation, aims to shape public policy to promote democratic governance, human rights, and economic, legal, and social reform. On a local level, OSI implements a range of initiatives to support the rule of law, education, public health, and independent media in over 60 countries. At the same time, OSI works to build alliances across borders and continents on issues such as combating corruption and human rights abuses. Recently, OSI engaged Plone and open source systems for a comprehensive knowledge management system to bolster its operations and support its objectives.
