Toolkits for NGO

No matter how small the contribution someone gives, but I am sure it will anyhow have a great impact to someone else’s life. I believe that sharing is the best way to keep knowledge on the flow.

Back to the topic, most of us know what NGOs are. We are also … Continue reading Toolkits for NGO

I would like to share a nice information about CHITS from a good AS2 friend, Dr. Alvin B. Marcelo. He said, “CHITS stands for the Community Health Information Tracking System. It was designed for the Philippines but it is internationalized. It can be used in Puskesmas (Community Health Centers) in Indonesia but will require localization.” Is somebody interested to help CHITS with the Indonesian localization?
