BAOTREE

We have the following intentions for our people, passion and purpose:

01

Increase Impact Capacity

Organizations work tirelessly to serve the underserved, support local biodiversity and drive value to their operations. Our software is designed to do the heavy lifting, scaling efficiency in workflows and coordinating multiple teams to achieve their objectives.

02

Systemic Change

We provide an opportunity for organisations and communities to connect, collaborate and co-create towards shared values. Through our data for development software, we will achieve systemic change at the grassroots.
03

Collaboration for Coordination

The development ecosystem is overrun by grant requests, duplication of work and minimal coordination between grassroot partners. To drive the change our planet and people need, solutions need to be shared with equality front of mind.
04

Radical Transparency

Through the lens of impact, communication and our relationship management system – Baotree users are empowered to track proof of impact, verify their data and report on how funds are used sustainably.
