    The Base Edition of NGO-in-a-box is a collection of essential tools for running a small-to-medium sized NGO. You can use this toolkit to set up and coordinate your office, organise and manage projects, collaborate online and support your campaigns. The Box contains a set of peer-reviewed Free and Open Source Software tools, with associated guides and tutorials, giving you the technical foundations to build upon.

    Produced by Tactical Tech in association with Women'sNet, the BaseBox is aimed at activist and advocacy organisations with a particular emphasis on developing and transition countries. The contents of the toolkit were selected by an editorial team made up of leading international practitioners working in technology support for non-profits, social justice organising and the development and deployment of Free and Open Source Software.

    We would like to thank all the people who have created the software and documents that we include in this project. We would also like to thank the Editorial Team for all their efforts in suggesting, selecting and compiling the tools and materials included in this project.
