Simprints is a nonprofit tech company from the University of Cambridge. We're backed by ARM, DFID and the Gates Foundation to build open-source biometrics for developing countries. Simprints empowers the existing mobile tools that governments and development organizations are already using to deliver essential services at the frontlines. Simprints is built off open standards with a rigorous approach to privacy and data protection. Our goal is to radically disrupt the inaccurate way we currently track and deliver progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, instead building a world where every person—not guesswork—counts in the fight against poverty.
Since August 2016, we have launched projects in Bangladesh, Nepal, Uganda, Kenya, and Zambia that collectively have reached over 40,000 beneficiaries with life-saving care. This is just the beginning. We are rapidly extending our reach, implementing projects across sectors and geographies, aiming to impact over 200,000 lives by the end of the year and 5 million lives by 2020.
