Body & Data, based in Nepal, is focused on creating a free, open and just internet that respects the autonomy of individuals and upholds their dignity. Its aims are to increase the participation and visibility of women and queer people online by supporting adoption of suitable technologies in campaigns and expression, and to support women and queer people to exercise their agency and autonomy while participating in the internet through secure digital strategies.
Body & Data works to achieve its aims by:
Providing support to organisations and individuals to use secure digital strategies for meaningful access and participation on the internet.
Directly supporting organisations to employ strategic data and technology tools to deliver responsible and impactful campaigns and programmes.
Conducting research on the social, cultural and economic impact of technology to contribute to evidence-based public debates.
