Kopernik is an on-line marketplace of innovative, life-changing technologies designed for the developing world.

How it works[edit | edit source]

Here’s how Kopernik’s online technology marketplace works:

  • Their website showcases the latest appropriate technologies
  • Local groups (NGOs) choose what is most needed in their area and apply online for funding.
  • After vetting, Kopernik posts the project on their http://kopernik.info/ website] so that you can choose what you want to fund.
  • The technology is shipped directly to the local NGO, avoiding middlemen, so more of your money (in the form of technology) reaches the end user.
  • You get feedback about how your donation has helped people’s lives.
