Data Without Borders

Not sure if this project will ultimately succeed or not, but the intent seems worthy... "Data Without Borders" is trying to bring together a team of qualified individuals who can assist, at low or no cost, non-profit organizations with their data-analysis needs.

From their webpage:

"...Data Without Borders seeks to match non-profits in need of data analysis with freelance and pro bono data scientists who can work to help them with data collection, analysis, visualization, or decision support."

further, "Data Without Borders aims to close that gap through a data scientist exchange, bringing exciting new problems to the data community and helping to solve social, environmental, and community problems alongside non-profits and NGOs."

Check them out here:

They have Twitter and Facebook pages, as well.
