Our mission is to facilitate optimal access to data and technologies to solve development problems in resource-poor settings. We provide capacity building and tools for data collection and analysis through collaboration with governments, the private sector, and civil society.
WHAT WE DO
Capacity Building There are different levels of knowledge, capacity, skills, and incentives required to utilize telecom data that depend on the goal and responsibility of the organizations involved in a given society. We will help narrow these gaps through capacity building, which will facilitate optimal access and use of mobile data in the long run.
Research and Practice We are working with local governments, mobile network operators, network authorities, and many stakeholders engaged in development practice across the globe. We contribute to improving social welfare through understanding the disadvantaged, complementing conventional statistics, and supporting efficient budget allocation through our works.
