Campfire Innovation is helping the helpers. We bring visibility to the work of passionate and innovative people helping refugees in Greece. We mapped 100+ teams across Greece serving 5000+ refugees. For them, we created the Impact Platform: an easy online tool to track their impact. We provide it for free along with free training and ongoing support. You can help us train 10 inspiring groups on how to tell the story of their impact and meaningful work through data and connect to supporters.
Citizen-led projects make a huge difference on the ground when it comes to providing dignified and effective aid to refugees. There are currently more than 100 such organisations in Greece providing aid for thousands. But, most people never know about it. Why? They don't have the tools to track their work and to show their impact in a meaningful way that relies on data and builds trust. Without that, they struggle to attract funders and be seen as valuable local partners.
We've designed the Impact Platform as an easy to use online tool that gathers monthly statistics from organisations. The data is displayed on a dashboard that teams can share with anyone. In one look, anyone can see how important their work is. Over the next 3 months, we'll train 10 teams. It only take 3-5 hours to train a volunteer to use it. By onboarding 10 organisations, we give them the tools to tell their story, access more support and help more people.
Bringing attention to impactful small organisations is changing our perception of humanitarian aid. The Impact Platform is a tool that shows the scale of the work of the grassroots community. By helping us launch this first version, you also help us publish the first ever report on grassroots impact on the refugee crisis in Greece. Our first round of users will help improve the platform and training for many more organisations to use. Let's put data at the service of innovation and dignity!
