The objective of this project is to design and implement a framework for data collection and analysis that can be used to support initiatives for social good.
In today’s world, data is being generated at an unprecedented rate, with vast amounts of information being produced from various sources such as social media, government, databases, and wearable devices. However, the potential of this data to impact society positively is often untapped. The challenge lies in collecting and analysing large and diverse data sets to gain insights that can be used to inform policies and decision-making in fields such as healthcare, education, and environmental sustainability.
This project aims to harness the power of data to address pressing social issues and drive positive change. It involves collecting data from various sources such as government agencies, non-profit organizations, and other stakeholders. The collected data will then be analysed using advanced analytical tools and techniques. This will allow us to gain insights and identify patterns that can be
used to inform decision-making and drive social impact. The insights generated from the data analysis can be used to inform policies, allocate resources more effectively, and target interventions in a more focused and impactful way.
