This recording comes from NetSquared London's April 7th online meetup.

With a catastrophic reduction in the F2F contact many charities are going to have with their beneficiaries over the coming months, the direction towards digital services is a clear route that many will take. 

However, as we do this it is essential we take into account the negative impact the lack of F2F will have on beneficiaries and staff members alike. 

Designing digital services that meet the need for meaningful human connection should to be a priority for us all. 

Led by the team at the relational design studio, Deepr, this interactive workshop jumpstarted a process where we learned and shared: 

  • What we know already about achieving human connection in digital and F2F services 
  • How we can begin to apply this to the new digital services we're urgently designing and developing 
  • Opportunities for us to work together to embed meaningful human connection in live projects

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.
