Community Lattice

"I'm so proud of the work we did with DataKind and their incredible volunteers. Our work stands out as one of the only research projects I’ve seen that wrestles with highly technical issues to find real world solutions grounded in public policy, economic forces, and community needs at a granular and actionable level. This is certainly not a one-off project. It is now my commitment to continue this great work and drive some serious impact."

— Danielle Getsinger, PG, MBA, Cofounder and CEO


"This project was timely and relevant—building confidence in the data we generate is critical for every single Medic Mobile deployment...It’s also incredible to witness how the DataKind and Medic teams worked alongside some very talented volunteers on this project—this is exactly the kind of collaboration that we hope for open source communities to enable.”

— Isaac Holeman, Co-founder

Earth Hour

"As the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, Earth Hour is about people and their potential to change climate change. The insights we gained from the DataDive highlight the greater impact we can have by becoming a data-driven organization and ensuring we effectively engage our millions of supporters worldwide to make a lasting difference."

— Sid Das, Executive Director


"This is the best experience I have ever had working with a group of expert volunteers. Our team’s clarity of purpose and diversity of expertise is exactly what we needed to uncover the hidden gems in our data to better serve our students."

— Kate Schrauth, Executive Director
