TechCamp Mumbai is a two-day South Asia technology conference being organized by the U.S. Consulate General, Mumbai, and Global India Fund through Samhita Social Ventures on February 20 and 21, 2013. The Camp brought together nearly 140 international technology experts and young, highly-motivated participants from NGOs throughout India and Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and the Maldives. The Camp provided NGO participants with training in low-cost or no-cost new and online technologies to help them address some of the most pressing social challenges in South Asia. TechCamp Mumbai is part of the TechCamp program under Secretary Clinton’s Civil Society (CS) initiative – an effort to galvanize the technology community to assist NGOs across the globe by providing capabilities, resources and assistance to enable them to harness the latest Information and Communication Technology advances to build their digital capacity. TechCamps help build digital literacy for NGOs by bringing in local and international technology experts to educate, train and work with them.
