Stream House has a software engineering team to develop tools and training platforms customized to a country’s needs. Using secure open-source technologies wherever possible, we have provided powerful IT solutions to developing country partners using a non-commercial pricing model. The idea behind this to allow these tools and systems to be sustainable for a country after a development partner leaves and donor financing ends. After initial deployment, we charge nominal rates for changes and customizations with no annual subscription costs and upgrade charges typically charged by commercial software to make them affordable for formative institutions with tight budgets. The following shows a sample of the tools we have developed. Please contact us if you are interested further.

Enact includes features that will allow a 'game admin' to create new games, develop content and manage the user experience. Training programs incorporating Interactive games have proven to be the most effective learning mechanism for training enforcement officials, civil servants, prosecutors and judges.
