What we did for others

Our Projects

Co-creating communication and education solutions

Our work ranges from eLearning curricula to mobile apps, social campaigns, serious games and online and offline platforms. We know how to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology and the requirements for sustainable success. Serious and fun, clever and beautiful, our solutions hold human experience at the heart. With an experienced team in Amsterdam and an international network of partners worldwide, we can work on any topic in any country. And we’ve been doing this since 1999.


In emerging economies, the demand is high for ICT-skilled employees. To inspire and educate young people in developing countries to improve their job skills and seek out career opportunities, Butterfly Works set up a network of digital design schools called We Are Bits. The aim of the We Are Bits curriculum is to train youth in the fields of ICT, entrepreneurship, creative thinking and life skills. Since the first school NairoBits opened in Nairobi in 1999, additional programmes have been introduced throughout Africa and South Asia. Work in Progress with Oxfam, one of the programmes that recognises the potential in creative thinking and ICT, has led to the expansion of the network through the creation of HargaBits and EkoBits.
