Graph for Good: Empowering your NGO with Graph Technology

Graph for Good: Empowering your NGO. Mario Bastande

May graph technology improve the deployment of humanitarian projects? The goal of using what we call “Graphs for good at Action Against Hunger” is to be more efficient and transparent, and this can have a crucial impact on people’s lives.

Is there common behaviour factors between different projects? Can elements of different resources or projects be related? For example, security incidents in a city could influence the way other projects run in there.

The explained use case data comes from a project called Kit For Autonomous Cash Transfer in Humanitarian Emergencies (KACHE) whose goal is to deploy electronic cash transfers in emergency situations when no suitable infrastructure is available.

It also offers the opportunity to track transactions in order to better recognize crisis-affected population behaviours, understanding goods distribution network to improve recommendations, identifying the role of culture in transactional patterns, as well as most required items for every place.

In the latest episode of the Connected Data Podcast we present you Mario Bastande,
Data Governance Manager for the “Action Against Hunger” NGO.

After his experience in the private sector, he realized the power of technology to make a real impact on people’s life. With experience in the field, he mixes both pieces of knowledge to improve accountability, monitoring, and effectiveness. Graph technology has been crucial on his last developments in NGOs.
