Our Impact

AtmaGo has proven itself as a critical tool for urban poor communities to share vital information that helps them prepare for, and recover from, disasters. AtmaGo also allows users to report problems and share solutions to daily challenges in their neighborhood.

Impact Evaluation

Can Mobile Phones Improve Disaster Preparedness?, was independently conducted by the Centre for Innovation Policy and Governance (CIPG) in Indonesia and released in October 2018 at the Social Capital Markets (SOCAP) conference by Atma Connect.The  AtmaGo App is the social networking tool that was evaluated in the study and is currently used by over 1 million people in Indonesia and soon to be introduced in Puerto Rico.

 

AtmaGo is trusted, reliable and local—and because people use it daily, it is where people turn in an emergency. People are more likely to survive disasters and address vulnerabilities when “they have good social networks and connections” — Nicole Lurie, US Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response.
