At Tech4Dev we’ve started working on the Development Data Platform (DDP). In short, this allows an NGO to aggregate data from multiple data sources into a unified data warehouse. The data here can be analyzed and visualized directly via the platform. Visually, this looks like:
If you want more details on the above, more information is available in the following documents
We’ve been working with two of India’s leading NGOs on a Proof of Concept of the above scheme and are quite pleased with the results so far. We’d like to add another 3-5 NGOs to help us validate our platform and add new features that are useful across the sector.
Key requirements for the NGO
- You have a mature and robust data collection process
- You have a good sense of your data and the information you’d like to glean from it
- Your data helps influence and guide your interventions in the future. i.e. your data is useful from a programmatic and/or research perspective
- You need the ability to house all your data in one unified place
What does the NGO get in return?
- Pro-bono support and assistance in getting started with DDP
- Once deployed, you will have a robust data pipeline
- Assistance in building good visualizations for your program
- Hand-holding and support, every step of the way 🙂
- Our love and gratitude forever 🙂
- You will have one person who had a good understanding of the needs and will be the main point of contact (PoC) for your NGO
- Your NGO will be responsible for the operational and monthly hosting costs. We expect this to be around INR 15K ($200)
- The PoC will meet with the DDP team twice a week
- Our goal is to wrap up the pilots three months from start
