Open Technologies for Societal Empowerment
Who We Are
We believe "Ultimate human capacity can be reached when the mind is liberated and knowledge is freely accessible."
iFOSSF (International Free and Open Source Solutions Foundation) is a 501c3 non-profit organization registered both in Michigan and California with the mission of advancing the research, development, and use of open technologies to empower people and societies around the world.
We envision a society where all people can freely participate in processes to improve their communities and societies. We believe it’s important to make open source technology the norm so that non-profit organizations and developing countries can afford the type of technology necessary to solve problems and more easily integrate with other providers to find collective, community-wide solutions. More importantly, developing countries or marginalized communities can become active participants in the solution process hence expanding and enhancing the civic space.
Our mission is to assist non-profits, businesses, and developing nations to be all they can be by facilitating the use of open source technology to solve local, community-based problems, inspire innovation, and attain sustainable development goals.
