The data collection and visualization capabilities will boost emergency response and allow organizations to enhance their capabilities in helping the vulnerable populations across the world.

FREMONT, CA: The emergency response efforts aimed at helping vulnerable children across the world are often hindered by lack of technology. The vulnerable populations are often inundated by a variety of inescapable barriers, subjected to inadequate education, healthcare, transportation, and housing. To resolve these issues, Dharma Platform, an impact-first mobile data collection platform, is partnering with ChildFund International to expand the speed of outreach through digital data collection.

ChildFund International collaborates with local organizations, government agencies, and other individuals to develop safe environments for children to thrive. It is committed to the goal of facilitating a world where children can fulfill their potential, realize their rights, be safe from violence, exploitation, and abuse.

Dharma Platform began as a no-code, user-friendly mobile solution empowering users to rapidly design, implement, and scale their programming on any device regardless of technical skill or connectivity. By leveraging data science and visualization software, it aims to streamline data collection and repurpose countless hours of training and manual labor. In an interview with CIOReview, David Muse, CEO of Dharma Platform, said, "Our platform allows for easy, no-code development of cloud-enabled applications that empower users to collect and manage data offline or online using any Android or iOS device."

The end-to-end data management capabilities of Dharma Platform enable non-technical users to streamline the designing and deployment of scalable web and mobile applications to collect and analyze data regardless of the location. It will also help them in making informed decisions based on real-time ground truth information without the need for connectivity. Recognizing its contribution, CIOReview Magazine named Dharma Platform as one of the "20 Most Promising No Code/Low Code Platform Providers-2019."

Mollie Woods of ChildFund International said, "Dharma Platform's easily configurable interface has allowed us to co-create contextualized mobile monitoring and evaluation data collection tools with our implementing partners in real-time, enhancing their ability to prepare and respond to some of the most vulnerable populations of children and families in their communities in effective ways."

ChildFund International is fighting for children's rights and well-being since the last 80 years. It has helped over 19 million children and families in more than 25 countries around the world. Equipped with Dharma Platform's offline, real-time data collection, ChildFund International will be able to obtain crucial insights and enhance their capabilities in promoting child safety across the world. The partnership will allow ChildFund to collect more data of higher quality in a shorter amount of time.
