Introducing DATA: Financial Transparency for Humanitarian Funding in India

DATA is a user-friendly platform designed for NGOs in India and global donors contributing funds in India. The primary aim is to enhance the financial transparency of humanitarian funding in India and track the funds reaching grassroots organisations. The purpose of the dashboard is to provide a common platform to humanitarian organisations in India, and donors worldwide making funds to India, to publish their financial data (as of now only for humanitarian programmes) for the sake of transparency and accountability to a wider group of stakeholders.

How DATA Works

DATA functions through voluntary reporting, exclusively for the Indian NGO sector, with NGOs and donors registering on the dashboard to publish financial data once approved. It enables precise tracking of funding layers for specific emergencies. All reported data is securely stored on DATA’s servers, with stringent adherence to its Data Protection Policy, ensuring the privacy and protection of sensitive information, such as registration details, during the onboarding process. This approach establishes a transparent and secure mechanism for financial data dissemination within the humanitarian sector.

What You Can Find on the Dashboard

The dashboard provides curated, contextualised, and simplified data on funding and transaction layers, including details on fund utilisation, overhead costs, funding to local organisations, and the actual amount reaching affected communities.

Getting Started with DATA

NGOs keen on demonstrating their commitment to transparency can register their organisation and start publishing their humanitarian fund utilisation. Donors interested in publishing their donations for humanitarian responses can also register their organisation. To get started, visit the registration page on the DATA website.
