DataCamp Donates continues strong as it ends the second quarter of the year with partners both old and new. We welcome 25 new NGO’s into the program, along with 11 familiar ones who are more than ready to rekindle their own missions of spreading data literacy to their members. In total, we have onboarded 36 organizations - an all-time quarterly high for the DataCamp Donates program.

Speaking of quarterly highs, in Q2 of 2022 alone, we have provided more licenses to people in need than in the entire first year of the DataCamp Donates program! This is thanks to our amazing partners.

At the end of Q2, we had 122 active partner organizations that utilized 32,000 licenses! This just goes to show that DataCamp Donates continues to grow and build a wider community for data literacy. Expanding out to different corners of  the world was not possible without their help, and so we would like to thank each and every partner for their own unique part in promulgating quality data science education to their learners. 

But that is not all! Our partnership with community-building organizations around the world doesn’t end in giving licenses. We also have had tremendous success in seeing success stories come into fruition with the use of these licenses. 

Partner Highlights - A Year To Look Forward To

RISTEK Fasilkom UI

Since the massive Ukrainian refugee crisis, Poland has received an influx of refugees as they seek asylum in their country. Uplifting these asylum seekers with the right skills and resources as they chart their own path for the future, especially for the young, is a great way to ensure the success that they need. We are always looking for ways to provide people with opportunities such as DataCamp Donates without the rising cost of education around the world.
