Gather Launch Event: new online platform for urban sanitation

Gather uses data to transform city sanitation. We will be launching our demo at 7pm on Tuesday 20th June 2017. We would love for you to join us at the Urban Innovation Centre in London to see it in action.

For the first time, our platform will visualise areas of greatest need, provide insight and track progress towards providing sanitation for everyone in cities. Gather will set a new benchmark for city sanitation. We are starting in the slum of Mathare, home to 200,000 people in Nairobi, Kenya.

We would love to see you at the launch!

Re: Gather Launch Event: new online platform for urban sanitation

Dear John,

I hope your launch event went well? Did you get valuable feedback?
I had a quick look at your website. The first thing I always look for is "who is funding this?". I found this information on your website:

Gather is funded by a growing group of generous philanthropists. Each donor has committed to supporting Gather for three years and their donations cover our core costs. Our donors give far more than just finance though. They are committed to Gather’s vision, and we benefit hugely from their expertise, advice and networks. If you are interested in joining this group, find out more here.

Another question I have is, how did you come up with this unusual name of "Gather"?

And finally: what are your hopes and plans how the SuSanA platform could help with your work, or how you could enrich the SuSanA platform? Which tools do you think will be useful for you and which communication channels that SuSanA has to offer would you like to use?

Looking forward to hearing more from you in the future!
