We are Data and Tech Aid (D.A.T.A.).

We are Data and Tech Aid (D.A.T.A.). We are a volunteer community formed of individuals and businesses with roots in data & analytics and technology, established with the goal of supporting charitable efforts in Ukraine. 

D.A.T.A. was founded by Rob Howes in response to the Ukraine crisis. It exists to unite us and allows us to pool our resources to, ultimately, make a bigger difference together. 

We have the backing of a number of high-profile business leaders and organisations including Peter Jackson, Peter Grindrod CBE, Barry Panayi and the EDM Council.

At this early stage, we recognise the need for immediate aid and action. As such, we’re currently focusing our efforts on fundraising via donations.
