The funding is the second round of investment for the Asia-Pacific Digital Transformation Program, facilitated by Australian not-for-profit social enterprise Infoxchange.

“ is proud to support Infoxchange's AI and tech capacity building program for NGOs in the Asia Pacific region. By leveraging on experts and resources with tailored solutions, this initiative is crucial to help make the most of AI, digitally transform their operations, and ultimately drive greater social impact in their communities,shared Johnson. 

The first round of the Asia-Pacific program saw more than $1M invested to upskill organisations across the region through collaborative forums, consulting and webinars, helping under-resourced organisations use technology to accelerate impact. 

This second round of funding will further support organisations who benefited from individualised technology assessments and coaching during the first iteration of the program. The funding will help these organisations harness AI and other innovative digital solutions to amplify their impact. 

“We surveyed nearly 1,600 nonprofit organisations in the Asia-Pacific to better understand their digital capabilities, challenges and opportunities, and we found that technological maturity was alarmingly low,” shared Infoxchange CEO David Spriggs. 


The Asia-Pacific NGO Digital Capability report found that: 

- One in six organisations experienced a cyber security incident in the last 12 months; 

- Only 27% of organisations had moved to the cloud; 

- 61% were less than satisfied with how they use technology. 

“To solve this problem, we need to equip impact-focused organisations with the tools, resources and support to leverage technology to solve social problems within an environment that is becoming increasingly challenging,” shared Spriggs.
