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.

We are best known for our work on ODK. ODK lets you build powerful offline forms to collect the data you need wherever it is. It's used by World Health Organization, Red Cross, Carter Center, Google, and many more.

Nafundi's CEO, Yaw Anokwa, founded and leads the ODK project. Nafundi's CTO, Hélène Martin, leads all technical work on ODK.

Together, Yaw and Hélène manage a team of developers, implementers, and trainers who work across countries and sectors to design, build, deploy and support data collection tools for a wide variety of clients.

Need help collecting data quickly, accurately, offline, and at scale? Contact us to get started.
