How is Impacto Digital financed?
In addition to the social commitment, professionalism and creativity that we pour into each of our initiatives, we understand that transparency is a fundamental pillar when creating innovative solutions to social problems. The trust that our allies, financiers, donors and beneficiaries have in us is our main asset, and that is why we want anyone to be able to access our transparency report with just one click.
We want you to know how much money we get and what we spend it on.
During 2021 we promoted 4 programs, 6 virtual courses, 11 human rights campaigns and 3 strengthening projects for social organizations. We did all of this in El Salvador, Honduras, Costa Rica, the United States, Peru, Paraguay, Bolivia, Guatemala and Argentina, because we believe in the development of technology for the common good.
Technological development and access to technology are not separate discussions. While 99 percent of the population became poorer during the pandemic, the fortunes of the 10 richest billionaires on the planet doubled (Source: Oxfam), largely thanks to the concentration of markets produced precisely by new technologies.
For the past two years, the pandemic and technology have been articulated in ambiguous ways. On the one hand, despite intermittent isolation, technology has allowed us to stay more connected than ever. Science pressed the accelerator fully and a few months into the confinements we already had instant tests, nanotechnology masks and a vaccine developed in record time. But at the same time, inequality deepened. More than a year after the first shot, vaccination rates in high-income countries are seven times higher than in African countries. At this rate, Africa will not reach the 70 percent vaccinated threshold until August 2024.
But there are other ways out of this crisis. At Impacto Digital we believe in putting innovation and technological development at the service of human rights, and for this reason we develop and campaign for free access technology and open license (if you want, you can visit our campus and learn about some of the free courses that we launched this year). We believe that technological innovation must be at the service of the energy transition, the elimination of gender inequality, the end of racism and transphobia, and the guarantee of a dignified aging. We believe in the right to mental health, in the active participation of young people and in the construction of work spaces free of discrimination.
I hope you like what we do. If you would like to support us so that we can continue to defend Human Rights in an efficient, innovative, transparent, and participatory way, you can donate to Impacto Digital and join our donor community.
For a 2022 with more hugs, less pandemic (enough please!) and less inequality.

We also like to manage projects and events for a limited time, produce courses and campaigns with a positive social impact with a human rights perspective and, obviously, promoting innovation. Look at everything we did in 2021!
