Open Data for Grassroot Development

Looking for: Advisor, Biz developer, Designer, Engineer

 Data drives a lot of decisions but poor quality data collected at the grassroots leads to inefficient policy decisions and improper monitoring and evaluation of programmes meant for benefit of BoP.

An example of poor quality data leading to inefficient policy decisions and ineffective monitoring and evaluation can be seen by observing the tuberculosis mortality rates in India. India spends $300 million on Tb treatment annually in India but despite that 300,000 people die

DigImpact strives to improve the process of data collection and monitoring of programmes meant for creating positive social change at the grassroots by helping government, non-profits and for-profit social enterprises digitize the process of data collection.

DigImpact is a collection of four tools – Digiform, DigiCollect, Digdata and Vizdata to improve data collection and monitoring of programmes being implemented at the grassroots for the benefit of the BoP
