We maintain and host KoboToolbox, a data collection, management, and visualization platform used globally for humanitarian action, development, environmental protection, peacebuilding, and human rights.

More than 14,000 non-governmental and international organizations use our tools to create data-driven social impact across the world. KoboToolbox is also actively used by virtually all United Nations agencies, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, as well as more than 350 government institutions and many international development banks.

Our tools are built to foster deeper engagement with and accountability to local communities. Our multilingual features enable users to work more effectively in local and global teams and to collect more diverse and accurate data. As a result, more than 170 million people in humanitarian crises were positively impacted by organizations using KoboToolbox between 2016–2021, according to an independent audit by PricewaterhouseCoopers.
