About

Kinaki removes technological obstacles to make data collection and analysis easy and efficient; so we spend less time at the computer and more time in communities, implementing projects and responding to the challenges of project participants.

User Experiences

I used Kinaki with my team in spring 2014 to evaluate a $2,6 million dollars of CIDA funded project in Rwanda for 6080 households. Having data in one place, easily accessible and understandable, helped us greatly in the preparation phase and served as a valuable basis for further research in the field during the evaluation. We used Kinaki also for the baseline and endline surveys comparison analysis. Kinaki was very easy to learn and use, served as a professional tool. Lenka Cerna, Independent Evaluator
For us, the best thing about Kinaki is that it serves as a central data repository between ourselves, the implementing partner, the donor, and any consultants we use. This greatly increases the transparency, accountability, and communication between all parties involved. Additionally, Kinaki's reporting feature allows us to have consistent reporting year after year and significantly reduces the amount of time involved in calculating performance management indicators. All-in-all we are happy with our Kinaki experience. David Kozarichuk, Senior M&E Coordinator, ADRA Canada

About the Kinaki Team

We are a team of humanitarian, development, social work, and information technology specialists who created Kinaki to address our need for improved tools for tracking and reporting on project data. We created Kinaki for ourselves, but now we want to share it with individuals and organizations that need an easy-to-use tool for storing, sorting and analyzing data, enabling them to improve their understanding of their projects and project participants' needs.
