Empower Civic Engagement and Governance
We empower residents with tools and trainings to solve local problems.
On Civic Engagement and Governance
AtmaGo serves as a digital democracy tool, that gives opportunities for communities to communicate transparently.
Our goal is to lift up community voices so they can lead the way. With front-line communities in the driver’s seat, governments are paying attention to people that had been ignored, and our technology is helping to amplify their voices and their collective action for social good. Local and national governments have also expressed that they need a greater ability to consistently communicate with their constituents, to bubble up effective solutions, and get more information directly from residents on their needs and concerns.
Atma Tools for Civic Engagement and Governance
We work with communities who often feel “ignored” or “invisible” to government. What these communities usually lack is a lightweight tool that allows them to organize in their neighborhood around local goals and objectives.
- Quickly report acute problems, like dangerous streets or downed wires, so agencies can take action.
- Improve public services by sharing ongoing problems with public services and infrastructure.
- Facilitate real-world, collective action. People gather together to organize bi-weekly neighborhood clean-ups, to promote eco-tourism, and actually fix roads themselves.
- Spread effective solutions and mutual support.
Complaint Handling Mechanism
Our Community Impact Platform allows organizations that work on disaster preparedness and response to help residents organize events to mitigate, respond to, and recover from disaster. It helps disaster organizations and community networks coordinate their work, reach new members, and increase participation.
The Community Impact Platform helps organizations track the impact they are having to improve disaster response and recovery through collection of photos, stories and quantifiable goals. Over 160 communities have been created on AtmaGo to generate change, from organizing preparedness events to rebuilding after disaster.
AtmaGo is an award-winning platform for people helping people. It enables neighborhood-based peer-to-peer communication and runs on mobile web and Android. AtmaGo provides personalized feeds based on a user’s location and topic interests.

USAID - MADANI
We strengthen the capacity, legitimacy, and effectiveness of Civil Society Organizations and improve governance to bring about social change. Reached over 1.5M people with actionable trusted information.
Qualcomm Wireless Reach
Qualcomm worked to empower communities through the AtmaGo mobile app. An independent evaluation by CIPG showed that AtmaGo increased social cohesion, and reduced mortality, morbidity and economic loss from disaster. AtmaGo connects Indonesians to economic opportunity through jobs, education, and entrepreneurship events and posts.
Stories of Strengthening Civil Society
We worked with 32 Indonesian Civil Society Organizations (Lead Partners) in districts / municipalities from six provinces in Indonesia.
This book shares the stories and achievements from these 32 Lead Partners, about their ongoing and successful efforts to increase their role in development. These stories are written by these Lead Partners themselves through Atma Connect’s training and guidance.
