What is it?
KoBoToolbox is a suite of field data collection tools for use in challenging environments. Our software is free and open source. The majority of our users are people working in humanitarian crises, as well as aid professionals and researchers working in developing countries. Our developer and research teams are based in Cambridge, MA and many other locations around the world.
Why was it developed?
Gathering reliable information quickly in a humanitarian crisis, especially after a natural disaster like a major earthquake or typhoon, is the critical link to saving the lives of the most vulnerable. Understanding the needs of the population is often neglected due to a lack of rapid means to collect and analyze this crucial information. KoBoToolbox was created as a free and open source toolkit for data collection and analysis in humanitarian emergencies and other challenging environments to address this urgent need. KoBoToolbox is fully funded through generous grants and donations from our partners.
Why are we sharing it?
KoBoToolbox is used by many organizations and researchers in a variety of contexts around the world. That is why we want to spread its use in our Latin American region.
