We are all set to conduct our second bootcamp to support NGOs in launching their WhatsApp chatbot on Glific. Through the bootcamp, we promise NGOs to get their chatbot up and running with two days of in-person hand holding. 

Among the 70 NGOs, 14 have successfully secured a spot in the bootcamp. These NGOs are working in various areas of education, livelihood, climate action and civic awareness, waste management and disaster relief, humanitarian aid and community development. Through our 1:1 conversations with these NGOs, we saw a need where Glific can support these NGOs to automate processes and conversations. 

Two day’s agenda is tailored to the needs of the NGOs and will hand-hold them on making them independent on running the chatbot by themselves. We are looking forward to a cross collaborative environment for NGOs to share their learnings and learn from each other. NGOs are encouraged to keep an impact lens and think about what type of data they want to collect from running a chatbot. They are also encouraged to see chatbots as part of their core offerings so that they holistically evaluate the impact they are creating from the program. Post bootcamp, we will support this cohort with knowledge and support sessions to help them launch their pilot successfully.
