About

Nafundi's mission is to create technologies that improve the lives of the underserved. Our current focus is designing, building, deploying, and supporting mobile data collection systems that work well in challenging environments (e.g., offline villages in rural Kenya, humid rain forests in Brazil, and even the International Space Station).

Nafundi's CEO, Yaw Anokwa, started the Open Data Kit (ODK) project. ODK replaces paper forms with smartphones and tablets. The platform has been used by thousands of organizations like the Gates Foundation, USAID, World Health Organization, and the Jane Goodall Institute to collect hundreds of millions of data points.

Our clients choose the team at Nafundi because of our years of experience designing, building, deploying, and supporting data collection systems that collect data quickly, accurately, offline, and at scale. Contact us to get started.
