Yankana is a project developed and maintained by Fundapi, an Ecuadorian NGO nonprofit that promotes the use of technologies for social action by individuals and organizations. The purpose of this site is to highlight use cases and experiences in this area in order to educate those interested in the subject and references show how to harness the potential of these tools in similar actions.

In 2007 Yankana was one of 21 finalists that were presented at the conference NetSquared that rewards initiatives to develop innovative uses of technology for social change.

“Yankana” comes from the Quechua word “llank’ana” which means “working tool”.
