We build interactive digital solutions that promise not only to deliver but to also transform lives & help achieve democratic missions through citizen engagement.
Because Sustainable Development Calls for Organizations that Embrace Digitization
Information & Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D) come to offer low-cost, innovative, replicable and interactive solutions to social, economic and political issues. Unfortunately, such a field is new to the Arab World and has not seen much development in recent years. More efforts should be initiated to engage social workers, ICT enthusiasts and stakeholders alike in the development and mainstreaming of innovative ICT4D solutions.
Web & Mobile Development and Creative Consulting Services
Paid services and consultancies to help nonprofits in the MENA Region and donor organizations make smart investments in technology, and pilot-test with digital approaches in various fields, like education, health or political participation. Possible solutions include: smartphone applications, website development, interactive maps, animation videos, Public Service Announcements (PSA’s) and communication and digital media strategies.

Solutions we've Supported
The UNICEF-lead Jeel962 Youth Network was founded with a mission to foster an inclusive approach to youth participation through embracing values of active citizenship and good governance. In this spirit, it was seen vital to capitalize on their online presence and address them in the digital spaces where most of their activity takes place. Tech Tribes designed “Jeel962.org” and its complementary mobile application to offer youth a new platform for digital engagement and an alternative tool to foster their participation in local governance . The technology capitalizes on the power of crowdsourcing by deploying an interactive map that enables young people to report issues affecting them in their communities and to respond to issues of priority highlighted on the map by other youth by launching community initiatives and recruiting members of the online community to help in their implementation.
Combatting harassment one click at a time.
As the first of its kind in Jordan, “7arkashat” online interactive map and adjacent website were developed to crowdsource input on harassment incidents, allowing for open and direct citizen engagement. Individuals can report incidents of harassment and add as many descriptors as possible for that particular case (description of the harasser, harassed, time of incident, etc). The more incidents reported in a particular location, the more that location appears as a heat spot on the map indicating the urgency for intervention. The website also creates instant data visualization of certain correlations between statistics and displays them in charts, demonstrating the dimensions of the phenomenon. This introduces the map as a pressure and accountability tool. Crowdsourcing helps users make smarter and safer choices by identifying places that are particularly unsafe versus those that are relatively safer.
Digitizing Access to Information, making complex legal language understood by average citizens.
Formal information on rights, procedures and policies is neither easily accessible nor understood by the average citizen. Most of what is available is written and produced in a technical, and sometimes legal, language that does not register with a generation that enjoys visual and creative content with useful and precise information. Wselet provides information about key topics of interest through nine major components; health, elections, women affairs, corruption, citizenship, economy, civil society, international community, and education. The Portal is coupled with a Facebook page that allows for more engagement with citizens and crowdsources their opinions and insights on information they deem missing for the portal to provide.
