Captricity is inspired by the individuals and organizations working hard to improve lives and communities around the world.  We know that for most of these organizations, access to accurate and timely data can make a critical difference, and yet paper is still often the best way to reach the people they serve.

Captricity’s Data for Communities program, since 2011, has offered deeply discounted digitization services to organizations worldwide. It has helped organizations such as Esoko, Cradles to Crayons, Grameen America, Innovations for Poverty Action, Transportation Alternatives, Free the Data, and more.
