The core team about their motivation to found Leapfrog:
Believing that access to ICT promotes the development of societies in the global south, we have combined our experience in IT and project management to found the NGO “Leapfrog” in 2011. Leapfrog is a children’s game in which one player kneels to provide a vault for the other player to hop over like a frog. We chose this slogan because we want our IT projects to contribute to the empowerment of kids and youths in the countries of the global south. We want to enable them to play a role in the development of their countries.
