is a free 2-day program designed to
provide individuals and organizations with an understanding of the
needs for managing information in response to disasters paired with
a practical technical workshop to provide instruction in how Sahana
Software can be deployed within and across organizations.
We have previously organized SahanaCamps
in India, Vietnam, Taiwan and
Portugal - all with great affect and impact. Most recently, after
attending our SahanaCamp

for their organization with the assistance of the Sahana Software
Foundation. We hope to forge similar partnerships in Southern
California through this program.

to explore solutions for

donations management, registering organizations, asset management,
inventory management, request management, project tracking and
