Colombia : MAKAIA
In 2013, MAKAIA joined TechSoup Global Network to provide the validation service for Microsoft’s Office 365 for Nonprofits applicants in a number of Latin American countries.
Makaia expanded its partnership with TechSoup in 2014, with the launch of Programa de Tecnología para el Sector Social that enables nonprofits to access other software donations.
MAKAIA Asesoría Internacional was founded in 2006 and focuses on capacity building in civil society organizations, social enterprises, local governments, and Social Responsibility Initiatives that support the social and economic development of Colombia and Latin America.
MAKAIA comes with their own experience in qualifying nonprofit organizations for their social sector platform (www.nodoka.co), which includes a Directory of organizations, among other services. When organizations register, Makaia reviews their documentation to validate their social purpose before making their information public in the Directory.
