March 13, 2014 — KoboToolbox, a Cambridge nonprofit that enables fieldworkers in distant conflict and disaster zones to gather information easily without active Internet connections, was recently awarded a $100,000 grant from Google to revamp its software platform to make it easier and faster to deploy.

KoboToolbox was one of 10 nonprofits in the U.S. and internationally, and the only one in Massachusetts, to receive the New Digital Age Grants, each valued at $100,000. Each grantee uses technology in innovative ways, Google said, “helping ensure that technology will be a force for good as five billion people connect to the Internet for the first time in the coming years.”
