It has been a wonderful month #InsideSocialCops — projects gained momentum, new impactful discussions took flight, and with all this came a lot of traveling. Here are some of the stories from what was a great September. 🎉
What we have been up to lately
Our work with Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana picked up the pace. From training LPG distributors on using Collect, to sharing our experiences with Shri. Dharmendra Pradhan, OMC heads, and field staff — it was a packed month for our Deployments Team. What made it more special was witnessing Letter of Intent being released for 300 new LPG distributorships selected using our platform. 😃
We participated in the #GoalKeepers2017 — an event that celebrates global changemakers and their work to help hit the Global Goals targets by 2030. P.S. It felt great to watch a talk in person between Obama, Bill Gates, and Melinda Gates. 😇
Our Research and Analysis team was in Papa New Guinea to explore and discuss how PNG can use data intelligence to measure its progress towards the UN SDGs in an effective manner.
It was a month full of exciting updates on Collect. With better response validation, smarter identity verification and resurveying, now your data collection project can be more efficient than ever.
