Meet our Tutator Forward 2021 grant finalists

October 5, 2021

At Tutator we have seen how difficult it can be for organizations working to improve society and the environment to select and implement the right technology. That’s why we created the Tutator Forward grant program: to identify, select and support organizations in their digital transformation by providing tailored software for specific Information and Communication Technology for Development projects.  

The Call for Proposals, which ran from February 15 to July 19, attracted interest from a large number of civil society organizations and government institutions; more than 1,000 organizations registered and submitted hundreds of projects from around the world.  

The Tutator Forward Committee reviewed the applications and evaluated different aspects such as:  

  • impact  
  • culture and motivation 
  • resources and stability  
  • alignment with Tutator’s strategy
