Sikisoko is an online and mobile platform targeted at users in developing nations to empower them to live more self-sufficiently, free from aid and charity. At its core, it is a web based search engine, marketplace and social network. Users can post know-how projects, offer products or services, engage in networks or announce events. In order to address a wide range of literacy and language requirements, navigation and content emphasize visual over verbal communication by relying on image sequences, video and icons.
Sikisoko Inc. is a start-up founded in 2009 in New York. The protoype of the platform is currently in development.
