What is MomoGivesBack?

MomoGivesBack is a program where developers and designers from MomoCentral volunteer their tech skills for social good! We started this program as a pilot in 2015 with Fast Forward - the top tech non-profit accelerator in the world. Over time, more tech talents from MomoCentral started contributing as they found it as a great way to fulfill their portfolio gap. From 2016 onwards, we've expanded MomoGivesBack into a permanent program, exclusively with Fast Forward.

The Impact Report

Impact of our volunteers' work thus far

Noora Health

Noora Health is an online platform that offers training and information to caregivers and patients after surgeries. The application that Yihang (MomoCentral volunteer) worked with Noora Health to code is the curriculum builder, which allows the team to quickly assemble curriculums on their interactive training application. The training application is currently still in beta with several of Noora Health's hospital partners, but within the year it is expected to be reaching all of Noora Health's hospital partners, which will at that point be ~75+ major hospitals and training ~400,000 families.
