The FundaciÃ³n Bip-Bip [Beep-beep Foundation] is no doubt one of the most important Spanish NGOs in the field of ICT4D, specially in everything related to bring ICTs to nonprofits to improve their managing capacities, advocacy reach, training programmes, etc. Indeed, they issued back in 2005 a report that analyzed the level of adoption of ICTs in Spanish nonprofits that worked in the area of professional inclusion entitled Estudio de diagnÃ³stico sobre el nivel de utilizaciÃ³n de las TIC en las entidades no lucrativas de acciÃ³n social que trabajan en pro de la inserciÃ³n laboral en EspaÃ±a.
Juan Gigli now let’s me know about their new project called PuntoOrg [dotOrg] self described as the
web portal devoted to making possible the access to ICTs for nonprofits, through practical guides, discounts and products and service donations. For those familiar with the Third Sector and new technologies, I’d dare say that this is a somewhat spanish version of TechSoup, though at an earlier stage.
Best of lucks in this new project!
