Become an AI-enabled NGO

& 10x your impact with the global AI community

No matter your maturity level, the Omdena platform helps you to build real-world solutions and accelerates your path into a data-driven organization. Get access to the world´s largest library of data science projects for impact organizations.

Omdena recruited a team of more than 50 data scientists around the globe who worked tirelessly over the entire project duration. I´ve rarely seen a team working so hard for a common goal and achieving such tangible results in a short period of time. The project resulted in several outcomes that are extremely promising, not just for Save the Children, but for the entire field of NGOs and other actors in the field.

What is an AI-enabled NGO? 

An organization that recognizes the value of data and uses artificial intelligence to deliver some of their services and programs highly efficiently and at a large scale.

The path to becoming AI-enabled 


1. Discover

Find out what problems you would like to solve using AI. 

Additionally, an organization will need to find out which data sources are available.

2. Agile prototyping

A short, initial project is required to develop a proof of concept, which is then followed by a prototype.

This demonstrates the value of an AI-solution both internally and externally.


3. Productionize 

The proof of concept is brought into production for the use by stakeholders to generate value.

4. Capacity building

The NGO starts a larger project to build up internal capacities like technical skills and to foster stakeholder collaboration, communication and problem-solving.

Rapid prototyping & more funding

WRI hosted an Omdena Innovation Challenge where 50 collaborators built a prototype to identify land use conflicts and match mediating government policies. The prototype was well-received and secured funding for follow-up projects. 



Productionizing & additional Innovation Challenges

WRI has been hosting multiple Challenges across domains such as climate change, land conflicts, policy-making, and more. In addition, WRI is leveraging Omdena Talent to develop production-level solutions.
