HNPW serves as an opportunity not only to connect with our partners in the humanitarian sector but also for our team to come together, present our work, and foster deeper relationships beyond virtual screens. Since its establishment in 2018, DFS has operated as a fully remote organization with a diverse team spanning across continents.

During HNPW, we conducted informative sessions on cybersecurity within the humanitarian sector and addressed the challenge of bridging the gap between technology and decision-makers in nonprofit organizations.

At the Global Information Management, Assessment and Analysis Cell (GIMAC) session focused on Ukraine, we showcased our ongoing efforts in the country, particularly our collaborative publication of monthly Situational Analysis Reports with REACH/Impact Initiatives.

We want to thank everyone who visited our booth, engaged in discussions about our work and expressed interest in potential collaborations. Special thanks to boldcode_, ourlong-term security partner.

Let’s continue our momentum and stay connected. Feel free to reach out to us at hello@dafafriendlyspace.or or partnerships@datafriendlyspace.org.
