We aggregate, curate and amplify global conversations online - shining light on places and people other media often ignore We develop tools, networks and initiatives to ensure that people have the capacity to find and create the information they need to improve their lives and participate more fully in their communities We are a platform for experimentation in global citizen media - supporting networks of innovators in the developing world
