How nonprofit ZOA uses Meraki to connect remote offices and help those in need
Cisco Meraki technology helps ZOA help more people. Here’s why connectivity can change the lives of people around the world.
This misconception is just one issue that nonprofit organization ZOA found themselves having. “There's this thing in the West where we take IT and connectivity for granted,” says Jochum van der Heide, ZOA IT Manager. ZOA has been on a journey since its inception over almost 50 25 years ago in Southeast Asia. The aim of this organization is to support people who suffer due to armed conflict or natural disasters by rebuilding homes and communities, and staying there until the job is complete.
“We stay until recovery,” says ZOA communications manager KlaasJan Baas, “After recovery, then we can hand it over to local organizations. Our aim is always to leave, but only once communities are stable.”
