We were inspired by the struggles faced by non-profit agents in developing countries managing their data.
What it does
It allows users to generate a spreadsheet of data by simply taking an image of written data.

Challenges we ran into
We had challenges with aws permissions and security issues.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to work cohesively as a unit to accomplished a meaning goal with real-world impact.
What we learned
We learned to use aws for collaboration (Cloud nine), object storage (s3), and machine learning (rekognition).
What's next for dataNGO
Working with more organizations to develop further and deploy the working project.
