Our contribution to health centers and microfinance institutions for COVID-19 management: the COVID-19 toolkit


The HEDERA training platform enables the creation, management, and monitoring of training materials and provides a space for knowledge exchange and follow-up on brief and long-term trainings.

Create your own sessions and users. Train your staff remotely.

The entire investment process, involving everyone from impact investors to microfinance institutions and other microfinance stakeholders, happens mostly offline, with high costs and low efficiency. We want to change this.

Natalia Realpe, HEDERA CEO


The first day of the forum, in the panel discussion entitled How to measure and manage the sustainability impact of new ventures?, moderated by Klaus Fichter, the panelists explored the relevance and implications of impact assessment for new ventures, as well as in the development sector. In a debate style format, together with Frank Ackermann, SDG Investments' Managing Partner, and Karl H. Richter, Executive Director and Co-Founder of EngagedX, Natalia gave her insights on the approach towards impact assessment from two perspectives, that of a social entrepreneur and that of the director of a company conducting impact assessment for the microfinance sector.

The second day, in the session entitled Digital approaches and tools for the assessment of sustainability impacts of new ventures, Natalia presented HEDERA's approach and vision regarding impact assessment, as well as the tools we have developed for MFIs. Through the lens of why and how, Natalia revealed HEDERA's background, main purpose, and revolutionary goal of changing perspectives on the business-as-usual approach to impact assessment.

A discussion worth listening to!

nachhaltig.digital is a platform for sustainability and digitization in small and medium-sized businesses. Initiated by DBU and B.A.U.M., it promotes examples of best practices.
We are proud to be one such example!

As the novel coronavirus continues to rapidly spread across the world and throughout the most vulnerable communities, we need to be able to quickly and easily identify at-risk people who may be infected, as well as determine and meet the needs of people at the bottom of the pyramid.
For this purpose, we have developed a simple COVID-19 diagnostic questionnaire and incorporated it into our HEDERA collect mobile app. We have also enabled several different surveys that users can select on the impact of COVID-19 and the lockdown on people and their needs during this time. Learn more about the COVID-19 toolkit here.
Organizations can use the app, including the COVID-19 questionnaires and our standard surveys on access to basic services, poverty measurement, and agriculture monitoring for SDG assessment, along with the associated dashboards, for free until September 30, 2020.

Dear community,
We are conscious of the challenges ahead, considering the surreal situation we are facing with the spread of COVID-19 worldwide. For those NGOs working on sustainable development and committed to supporting their communities, which have had to cancel in-person meetings, trainings, workshops, or conferences, we are offering our training platform (available in multiple languages) for free as a contribution during this crisis.
The platform, built on the open source framework Moodle, enables trainers to create and manage their own content, follow up on participation, and interact directly with the trainees. You can upload all kinds of multimedia, create surveys, forums, exercises, etc., and conduct webinars and virtual classes.
The offer for free access to the fully administered platform is valid for eligible organizations until September 30, 2020. Feel free to contact us so we can schedule a call to discuss and give you and your colleagues/trainees/students access to the platform.
Stay healthy and safe, and keep up the hard work. Your commitment to improving this world is so crucial, now more than ever.

Today, a first-of-its kind webinar on environmental impact measurement will take place at 14:15 CET. It will be decisive in determining the future of frameworks for investors and their investees in the microfinance sector to manage and measure environmental impact. Together with Anna Kanze - Grassroots Capital Management - and Jurgen Hammer - Social Performance Task Force - HEDERA will be moderating an interactive webinar for the SPTF investor working group, streaming from Lisboa, to explore the challenges in tracking institutions' environmental commitment and discuss the future of these frameworks for the sector.

We are proud to announce that HEDERA will receive financial support from the German Federal Environmental Foundation (Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt) through the Green Start-up Program. The program is dedicated to companies - in the early stage - that develop innovative solutions combining sustainability and digitization.
We are extremely honored to be part of this program and this network and excited to contribute to the sustainability entrepreneurship sector in Germany and abroad!
