Hey Data Do-Gooders! Time for another DataJam!

Let us continue our journey into the sprint with another day of jamming along with interacting with a new non-profit partner to enable them to start their journey towards using data science to amplify impact.

No prior participation in previous DataJams is expected. We'll set the context for you to get up to speed and contribute to the participating organisations.

We will start the session by introducing our nonprofit partners - Daksh, OpenCity & Pratham Books to talk about commonly experienced data challenges and the current problem statements. Then, we will form small groups to discuss the problem statement and ideate together to build impactful solutions.

At the end of the day after a de-brief of the problem-solving session, we'll get to interact with a non-profit partner Nudge(https://www.thenudge.org/) to understand their work.
