Simprints’ mission is to transform the way we fight poverty. We build technology to radically increase transparency and effectiveness in global development, making sure that every vaccine, every dollar, every public good reaches the people who need them most. We work with iNGOs and government ministries to create digital identities that empower those living in some of the harshest environments in the world. Today, we have deployed 12 projects in health, finance, and education across 11 countries, reaching over 158,000 people.

With the support of our partners at Autodesk Foundation, Gavi (The Vaccine Alliance), Cisco, USAID, DFID, and others, we aim to reach over 4 million people by 2023.

About the organization

We are a nonprofit technology startup from the University of Cambridge building biometrics for beneficiary identification in developing countries. We partner with impact organisations like BRAC, Mercy Corps, Watsi, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, and Gavi to reach those who are currently “falling through the cracks” of service delivery. Our team’s goal is to radically disrupt the inaccurate way we currently track progress towards the SDGs, instead building a world where every person—not guesswork—counts in fighting poverty globally.
