The Engine Room is an international organisation that helps activists, organisations and social change agents make the most of data and technology to increase their impact.

We are a non-profit organisation ourselves, and our international team is made up of experienced and committed practitioners. Since 2011, we have supported more than 200 organisations, big and small, from every corner of the globe.

Technology and data have the potential to dramatically accelerate the impact of any group or organisation that promotes equality, justice, human rights, good governance and accountability.

We aim to:

  • Increase impact by supporting you in making informed technology and data decisions
  • Support the effective use of data and technology for people’s empowerment
  • Cut down on wasteful costs in civil society’s adoption of technology and data
