In 2019 we will be launching the first city data hub in Madagascar. Gather is bringing together government, private and nonprofit organisations to transform how data is collected, exchanged and used. The hub will improve the lives of 350,000 people in low income communities by first transforming the sector’s decision-making process. In doing so, the hub will catalyse three of Gather’s unique offerings: a new data standard, a mechanism for data sharing, and a new geospatial index that will allow decision makers to effect change in line with Sustainable Development Goal 6.2.

2019 will be a significant year for Gather. By 2020 we want to be working in four countries - Madagascar, Zambia, Kenya and Ghana - to transform the way that sanitation is provided across entire cities. Together with our partners, we will be changing the lives of 5 million people through using data for good.
