Since our founding in 2011, PeaceGeeks has grown from a small group of volunteers building websites for grassroots organizations into a leading nonprofit in tech for peace.
We've partnered with numerous civil society groups and grassroots organizations around the world to strengthen their ability to tell their stories, collect data, share information and engage communities in peacebuilding and humanitarian action.
Take a look at our past work:
One of PeaceGeeks' earliest products was Amani. Amani is a simple open source 'website-in-a-box' tool that PeaceGeeks has created to help make it easier for other non-profit organizations to get online, collect data, share information and engage communities. We have officially sunset the Amani platform, but we continue to maintain existing Amani sites and stay committed using and developing open-source and open knowledge software.
PeaceGeeks has worked with some incredible individuals and organizations that are making peace a lived reality in their communities. Some of our past projects with grassroots partners included creating content strategies, building useful and effective websites, designing web and mobile apps, providing digital humanitarian support, crisis mapping, social media management, training and mentoring.
Because there is no single, platform that can speak for all South Sudanese friends about atrocities committed in the conflict, there cannot be a single, absolute answer to any question that begins with the quest for accountability, but CEPO has been doing great and consistent monitoring work using the mapping tool of our website, which keeps on informing the whole country and the diaspora community about incidents that have occurred in the country.
