Aimia’s Data Philanthropy programme is a skills-based volunteering initiative at Aimia. Each year we pair analysts with charities to help them use their data to drive improvements in their operations, fundraising and recruiting.

For the #Iwill project we used open source data and statistical software to create a maps of schools that could benefit from social action. This analysis and mapping will help Youth Social Action (YSA) charities understand and identify potential new schools where YSA could have a positive benefit.   Aimia analysts will continue to support the #iwill campaign throughout 2017 by helping the Step up to Serve team measure and visualise the improvement of Youth Social Action data collection in their target schools
