Welcome to Gather

Gather uses data to transform city sanitation


Gather Bringing people and data together
to solve the urban sanitation crisis


Our Vision

We exist to bring people and data together to solve the urban sanitation crisis. By 2020, we want to expand sanitation services for 15 million people in eight emerging cities across the world.


Our Process



We train young people to map sanitation in the areas where they live.



We dive into the sector’s existing data to understand the gaps and suggest adoptable changes to make data more shareable and usable.



We are building an online platform to visualise priority areas for investment. We launched a demo for the slum of Mathare, home to 180,000 people, in Nairobi, Kenya in 2017.


Our Platform

Our goal for 2018 is to launch the platform for three emerging cities in East Africa, targeting 3.2 million people who lack access to safely managed sanitation, and build momentum across the sanitation sector toward a new data standard in line with Sustainable Development Goal 6.

Express interest in access to the platform today:
