SAFE STEPS D-Tech Awards winners announcement
The SAFE STEPS D-Tech Awards — created by Prudence Foundation and supported by Humanitarian Partner IFRC and Technology Partner Lenovo and others — find, fund and support technology solutions that can reduce the unnecessary loss of human life and limit the social and economic impacts of natural disaster events.
SAFE STEPS was established to build more resilient communities. The SAFE STEPS D-Tech Awards aims to harness the power of technology to help realise this aim. Together with their partners, they aim to provide a fertile platform to help technology solutions realise their potential in reducing the unnecessary loss of human life and the social and economic impacts of disasters and aid recovery.
A grant of US $200,000 will be shared between the finalists and runners-up to support the implementation and scaling of their technology solutions. Prudence Foundation provided $150,000 of the grant while Lenovo provided $50,000 and in-kind support.
The 2021 winner announcement will be on June 29!
