NEW YORK, Dec. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital innovation agency SarkissianMason announced today that it would engineer a mobile solution for an anti-human trafficking organization in need of a technological innovation in its first Technology for Change Grant. The agency will be donating up to $100,000 of time and resources to work hand-in-hand with a not-for-profit partner working in the field of anti-human trafficking.

CEO Patrick Sarkissian explained the agency's idea, "We must help. NGOs can give us their knowledge and insights, then we can apply our method of innovation and help make a difference with an issue that preys upon people throughout the world, including an alarming amount in the US."

Starting December 5th, the agency will begin accepting applications from registered US-based 501c(3) organizations. The organization should be involved in providing direct services, reporting, education and/or advocacy around anti-human trafficking and have a vision for utilizing technology to increase their reach and impact.

SarkissianMason will work closely with the nonprofit partner to concept and build a mobile technology solution and adoption strategy. Specific examples of deliverables could include: SMS-based awareness campaigns and fundraising, customized mobile application development for locally relevant content and services, or mobile-based data collection services for reporting and tracking.

Innovation is nothing new to SarkissianMason, which has traditionally invested 25% of company time in developing its own intellectual property. "We are really excited to showcase a technology innovation in the social change space, and to ultimately add the creation into our intellectual property portfolio," Sarkissian adds, "social innovation isn't just about creating positive social impact, but it's also about integrating technology solutions into services and connecting a number of stakeholders around social problems."
