The Sahana Software Foundation is dedicated to the mission of saving lives by providing information management solutions that enable organizations and communities to better prepare for and respond to disasters. We develop free and open source software and provide services that help solve concrete problems and bring efficiencies to disaster response coordination between governments, aid organizations, civil society and the survivors themselves.
At Disaster Tech Labs we use WiFi to reconnect disconnected communities in disaster zones across the globe. We also support other disaster response organisation by providing IP-based communication services. In between deployments we research and develop new technologies and new applications of existing technologies in order to improve disaster response work.
