Supporting open source projects for a digital society that serves everyone.

The Digital Impact Alliance (DIAL) at United Nations Foundation has launched its Open Source Center to provide a collaborative space for (and professional technical assistance to) open source projects focusing on international development and humanitarian response.

We are a Google Summer of Code umbrella organization that works with many of the leading projects in this area, including Ushahidi, Humanitarian Open Street Map Team, OpenLMIS, SUMSarizer, LibreHealth, and Open Data Kit.

Our Center assists in the establishment of effective governance, software project management, and contribution models for member projects. It also provides technical, architectural, and programming support for projects; and assists those projects in support, engagement, management of their communities of contributors and implementers. More information about the DIAL Open Source Center is available at

This year, our sub-organizations include: (final list of sub-orgs pending list of which orgs will participate independently)
