Atma Connect believes in the power of “people helping people” – and in using tech for good.
Atma Connect launched in grassroots communities to build resilience among people with AtmaGo, our hyperlocal mobile app. Today AtmaGo reaches over 9 million people in Indonesia. We launched AtmaGo in Puerto Rico in late 2019, after the island was devastated by Hurricane Maria, and we are connecting people and communities across the island to build resilience.
“During the disaster response in Palu, I used AtmaGo to find info about help, evacuee camps, volunteering opportunities, and so on…” — Imelda, Sulawesi
We are an award-winning nonprofit organization with unique core competencies. First, we are experts in building “tech for good” solutions that connect people so they can share vital information and create bottom-up change. Second, last-mile grassroots communities and changemakers are our focus, and building trusted relationships is our forte. We marry tech and community development. In the hands of people, AtmaGo has been a tool for post-disaster community resilience, Covid-19 information dissemination, digital literacy and misinformation training, civic engagement, and coordinating environmental projects. We operate at the urban and village level.
We have recently launched the Community Impact Platform on AtmaGo to foster community and to enable and track the community impact of thousands of people working together to improve their communities, from maternal education to food scarcity to climate action and beyond.
Atma’s CEO and Founder is an environmental engineer who brings to the organization equal attention to technology, community, and nature. Atma Connect has designed tech and human engagement solutions for environmental organizations, including interactive websites and global-scale knowledge-sharing platforms, such as NatureProtects.org for The Nature Conservancy and Penatani.ID for the Penabulu Foundation and Ford Foundation.
Atma means “soul.” Our mission is to connect souls to each other, to digital tools, and to nature…for things that matter to people and the planet. That broad calling means Atma Connect does a lot of things, such as collect data, verify impact, build digital hubs to enable multi-stakeholder interactions, and help village residents become online journalists. Our vision is to enable a collective emergence that knits together a new world – one where each person’s unique contribution toward collective benefit is recognized and rewarded.
