“The support of Cisco is essential to ensure that we can sustain KoBoToolbox as a global public good that benefits these frontline responders and the wider humanitarian and development communities.”Patrick Vinck, Co-Founder of KoBoToolbox and President of KoBo Inc.
Since 2018, Cisco and the Cisco Foundation have provided three grants supporting KoBoToolbox—the free, open-source, digital data collection and analysis platform.
Today, KoBoToolbox is the most widely used data collection and analysis platform in humanitarian assistance and protection. It has been used in conflict and natural disaster settings around the world.
Cisco has since provided five grants to help develop and scale the KoBoToolbox platform. The most recent grant, issued during the COVID-19 era, is fueling the development of Kobo Voice, which enables phone-based interviews, recording, translation, and transcription.
KoBoToolbox receives about 10 million surveys each month, helping create an evidence base that is impacting millions of people worldwide who are affected by conflict or disasters.
