Omdena NGO Consulting Program

Become an AI-enabled NGO, step by step, to 10x Your Impact | Omdena

Become an AI-enabled NGO

one step at a time

No matter your maturity level, we help you to identify suitable problems for AI, build your data strategy, and eventually develop impact-driven real-world solutions.

All accelerated by the world´s largest platform for collaborative AI development. 

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.
