How NGOs and Charities Can Implement Budget Video Conference Softwares to keep activities going in the wake of COVID-19

In the wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic which has literally stopped the world, NGOs working in East Africa are still required to continue with their operations and hence the need for coordination across the world. Most of these organizations have limited resources and end-up using FREE video conferencing facilities which are not reliable and easily manageable within the organization. An organization by the name TechSoup identified this problem faced by small organizations and has collaborated with major Software companies to offer subsidized softwares as software donations. Some of the essential tools that can be of help to teams working from home are Zoom and Microsoft Teams.
