The Tanzania Data Lab (dLab), as a non-governmental organization has been formed in June 2018 as a progression of the three successful projects named; Tanzania Data Lab (dLab), Data Zetu and Data for Local Impact Innovation Challenge (DLIIC). Data Zetu (“Our Data” in Swahili) aims to empower communities to make better, more evidence-based decisions to improve their lives.The program works with communities across Tanzania to discover issues that matter most to them. Then we work with stakeholders to arm them with skills and tools to make sense of data related to those challenges. As a result, we’re helping to foster the use of open data that is relevant, hyperlocal, and actionable.
