Our mission is to create change socially and economically through IT literacy advancement, research, the creation of online platforms, and other innovations that solve dire needs in various areas of the nation. Our work at the Faciotech Foundation is guided by our unwavering commitment to catalyze societal advancement and create a significant imprint through the application of technology.
Inaugurated in 2023, the Facio Innovations Technology Foundation (Faciotech Foundation) is a non-profit organization serving as a trailblazer in the realm of information technology infrastructure. With its roots in Ghana, the foundation builds upon the legacy of Faciotech, originally established in 2015. Our team, comprised of devoted and seasoned researchers, meticulously conducts thorough research to devise practical and innovative IT solutions. These solutions are designed to stimulate IT literacy, foster social interaction and awareness, and instigate the development of further innovations adept at addressing societal challenges.
Technology for Social Causes
We create online platforms that help create awareness on social issues, educate people on various matters, serve as a means of interaction, and also help raise funds for beneficial causes. For instance, with our crowdfunding website, our aim is to provide a platform where business owners can share their stories and appeal for funds for their businesses. In developing countries, one major source of the collapse of small and medium scale businesses is the lack of access to funds. With the crowdfunding website, we bring together people from various parts of the world and fields to share their stories and offer help to one another. Also, we provide support for NGOs by promoting their goals online.
We accomplish this by creating websites for them at affordable rates to enable them promote their goals to a wider audience which will, in the long run, help them to generate funds and get interested people on board. Again, we provide consultation services for NGOs on how best they can use the internet to promote their initiatives. NGOs who are seeking to take their activities to the next level must of necessity leverage technology. Faciotech comes in here to provide the necessary consultation to enable them take their NGOs to the next level.
Technology can be leveraged to ensure maximum output in the agricultural sector. Now with technology, challenges surrounding irrigation of vast lands of crops, ploughing acres of land, land surveillance, harvesting on a large scale, storage facilities among others have become a thing of the past. There are various equipment that can be used to do all these using less labor and less cost. Faciotech educates farmers on the various technologies, how they work and how they can be used in making farming easier and more productive.’’ We also provide agricultural drone services that perform various functions.
Drones are used for irrigation and spraying plants with pesticides. These drones replace the traditional pesticide sprayer in a fast, easier and less costly way. Drones can also be used for sowing seeds in a more efficient manner as well as land surveillance to check for weeds and pests’ outbreak and monitor irrigation and fertilizer shortage. Through our drone service, we promote the day to day operations of life on the farm through high resolution aerial video or aerial photography. We capture the land, the livestock and the infrastructure. We also report on plant counts and help farmers know which plants are growing well and those once affected by pests.
Technological support and training
We provide IT training for institutions, students and individuals. Seeing the importance of technology in our world today, we believe that inculcating IT knowledge into the younger generation is a good cause. We, therefore, organize ICT training for students who have completed Junior and Senior High schools to make it possible for to acquire the necessary IT skills. Also, we offer IT training to schools, farmers, workers and other institutions to enhance their knowledge of technology and how they can take advantage of it in their endeavors. Again, individuals who are interested in learning basic/advanced IT skills also qualify to receive IT training from us. Through this, we aim to advance IT literacy and create a viable environment where people can easily leverage technology in their lives, studies, businesses among many others.Our IT training also takes place in a more structured way. With our IT School, we give people the opportunity to enroll and study IT related courses for a period of time. As part of our core mandates in ensuring that IT literacy is advanced, we remove barriers that may stop brilliant students from getting access to IT training. Thus, we enroll students who are interested in IT on scholarships to enable them to study IT related courses of their choice. Through both our structured IT training and short term training, we equip people with IT skills in a more practical and intensive way.
Land Management Technology Services
Faciotech is introducing the use of technology in managing and securing lands as well as other real estate properties. We have created an online platform to reduce the high vacancy rate prevalent in Ghana and bridge the gap between real estate developers and home seekers. A look at Ghana’s home and property space can tell any real estate enthusiast that in spite of the housing deficiency in Ghana, there is a high vacancy rate. Though lack of funds may be a primary reason for the high vacancy rates, the inability of home seekers locate their dream homes and location is yet another challenge. Despite the increase in the housing stocks in recent times, vacancies rates are still rising with worse housing conditions. Research undertaken by us indicates a disconnection between Real estate developers and home seekers in Ghana. Thus to say, home developers either develop for a non-existing market or home seekers are not able to locate their desired properties due to non-availability of data. We work with real estate businesses to develop solutions that will assist them in reaching the ideal home buyers. We envision the possibility of bridging the disconnect and knowledge gap of the industry. This platform is robust yet simple and easy to use.
Leveraging Tech for the SDGs
The Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 for the year 2030. They include No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-being, Quality Education, Gender Equality, Clean Water and Sanitation, Affordable and Clean Energy, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, Reduced Inequality, Sustainable Cities and Communities, Responsible Consumption and Production, Climate Action, Life Below Water, Life on Land, Peace and Justice Strong Institutions, Partnerships to achieve the Goal. Our aim at Faciotech is to work towards the achievements of the SGDs through the use of technology. We organize online symposia and create animations to create awareness of the Technology and SDGs. Again, through our IT training, we aim at equipping people with IT skills that will enable them to secure jobs easily on the job markets or create businesses that will, in the long run, employ other people. Through this way, we contribute a quota to the achievement of these goals. Also, our online platforms created for deliberations on social issues help throw more light on the SGDs goals and drive discussions on what can be done to contribute towards its achievement.
Social research in technology
Creating innovations to deal with complex issues require extensive research on various social and economic issues. Innovations are the results of dedicated efforts to quality research. Research is, therefore, a crucial aspect of Faciotech in the achievement of our goals. Faciotech conducts research on social and economic issues to see how best technology can be leveraged in these areas. Our team of professional and experienced researchers brings a whole world of empirical evidence to the table that enables us to create viable solutions using technology to solve complex societal issues. For instance, to leverage technology in the agricultural sector, one would need extensive research to gather facts about lands, crops, the kind of human labour and equipment used on farms and how they increase or decrease efficiency etc. Having empirical evidence helps to create innovations that can be employed to increase efficiency. That is why research is a pivotal to our success at Faciotech. Through such committed efforts towards research, we are able to explore, analyze and review various social challenges and create solutions using technology.
