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

Hosted by Jackson Gathoni of NetSquared Nairobi

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.

In this video recording, Jackson shows how your charitable organization can benefit from some of these software donations as well as other tools.

Stuck at home? Bored? Me too!

I miss the live events this NetSquared meetup creates — but COVID-19 can't stop us. We're going virtual!

While we're physically distancing we can still come together to learn how technology can support nonprofits during this difficult time. I will share online events from the community every two weeks during the lockdown.

 

UPCOMING EVENTS

What does the cancelation of live events mean for your NetSquared group?

COVID-19 is forcing NetSquared organizers to be flexible. Join Elijah van der Giessen, the NetSquared Community Manager, and Susan Tenby, TechSoup's new Global Director of Community, for a recorded call about how NetSquared's leaders (that's you!) can best respond to the emerging situation.

We answered your questions like:

  • Should I cancel my upcoming events? And if so, how?
  • I haven't started my group yet... what can I now NOW?
  • Are virtual events an option? How can I use the NetSquared Zoom room?
  • What resources are available to help me and my local community work from home?

Plus, this was your first opportunity to ensure TechSoup's new Global Director of Community learns how we can best support your grassroots community work.
