We would like to express our deepest gratitude to a number of companies and non-governmental organisations that are sponsoring us in one way or another. In particular we would like to mention the following:
The US based Cognition Corporation have provided us with their ‘Cockpit’ software tooling and related technical support services to enable some of our key Systems Engineering activities free of charge; for example the development and management of our system and project requirements, which is based on the full traceability from user needs, via system requirements and the resulting design outputs, to the necessary implementation and integration steps to put in place the Mahola health care system. Also, our Risk & Opportunity Management is supported by their tooling.
Airbus, the leading global aircraft manufacturer, has supported our work in many ways, including by supporting our awareness and fundraising efforts, for example adding to donations that Airbus employees have raised for our project. Also, a number of Airbus employees are directly participating in the Mahola project in their free time.
DST Systems is a UK based company that specialises in planning, creating and delivering both printed and digital communication to a wide range of businesses and private customers. They are providing us with printed awareness and fundraising materials of the highest quality free of charge.
The Bristol based University of the West of England (UWE), in particular within the Faculty of Environment and Technology, the Department of Computer Science and Creative Technologies have supported our work in many ways, including by supporting our awareness and fundraising efforts. Also, a number of UWE staff and students are directly involved in the Mahola project.
The Rome based SOFIA (Salvatorian Office for International Aid) coordinates, supports and facilitates the work of multiple international development projects in many countries of the world. Many of these projects are focused on education to enable both significant and sustainable improvements to the quality of life of large numbers of children and adults in deprived areas of the globe. The SOFIA team have helped us by sharing their experience with us and giving us their advice throughout the Mahola project.
