The latest on what we’re thinking and doing.
We are helping the crisis response helpline movement triple the number of people they help each year, without significantly growing their costs. By building Aselo, a modern, open source contact center platform in partnership with Child Helpline International, which represents 167 child helplines in 140 countries, we expect to serve more than 100 million children each year. And, we’re already expanding into adjacent crisis response areas, such as Internet hotlines for online abuse and gender-based violence helplines.
We are the technology partner in an ambitious global collaboration called 1000 Landscapes for 1 Billion People. We want to help local leaders in landscapes (ecosystems) everywhere fulfill their aspirations for a sustainable future. Our part of that is providing the data and software tools they need to plan, finance, and track their progress.
We are the geek advisors to the Working Capital Investment Fund, an impact investing fund backed by major foundations, investing in supply chain companies which have the potential to help major brands weed out unethical labor practices, such as child labor, slave labor, and exploitation, from their supply chains.
