About Us

Digital Green is a not-for-profit international development organization that uses an innovative digital platform for community engagement to improve lives of rural communities across South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.

We partner with local public, private and civil society organizations to share knowledge on improved agricultural practices, livelihoods, health, and nutrition, using locally produced videos and human mediated dissemination. In a controlled evaluation, the approach was found to be 10 times more cost-effective and uptake of new practices seven times higher compared to traditional extension services.

We are currently implementing projects in collaboration with over 20 partner organizations across 9 states in India and parts of Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Ghana, Niger and Tanzania.

Since 2008 and as of June 2016, we have reached over 1 million individuals across 13,592 villages through 4,426 videos, which showcase and demonstrate best practices. As many as 574,222 of the viewers have adopted one or more of the best practices promoted through these videos.

Our Vision is a world where all individuals live a life of dignity.

Our Mission is to integrate innovative technology with global development efforts to improve human well being.

Our Values include Humility, Excellence, Accountability, Empathy and Integrity.

Our Approach

We engage with and empower rural communities to produce participatory localized videos, leveraging pre-existing group structures to disseminate these videos through human mediation. These videos are of the community, by the community and for the community.

The approach includes: (1) a participatory process for video production on improved livelihood practices, (2) a human-mediated learning model for video dissemination and training, (3) a hardware and software technology platform for data management customized to limited or intermittent Internet and electrical grid connectivity, and (4) an iterative model to progressively address the needs and interests of the community with analytical tools.

Our data management software called Connect Online | Connect Offline (COCO) and Analytics dashboard suite customized to low resource settings are used to collect and analyze near real-time data on dissemination, adoption, and community interest.
