Development Now will be partnering in the near future with the San Francisco-based nonprofit organization NetSquared, focused on the intersection of technology and social impact. NetSquared is a subsidiary of TechSoup and has been operating since 2005. We are hoping to organize monthly gatherings open to anyone in the Sulaimani region interested in making their community a better place using technological tools. Development Now is the first NetSquared organizer in Iraq although there are:
- Organizers on 6 continents
- 83 NetSquared groups in 64 countries
- 170 organizers around the world
Feel free to spread the word! Our first NetSquared event is open to anyone in the Sulaimani area that wants to use technology to help its community and is scheduled for the beginning of October, 2011.
