We love data. We use it to understand the efficacy of what we do at Hello World.

We have put data at the heart of our organisation and have partnered with 60 Decibels to measure our impact.

Listening and understanding how our communities use the Hello Hubs needs to shape future development. It also gives us (and our partners) the conviction to roll out our Hubs to more communities.

We use all sorts of active and passive data to understand the impact of Hello Hubs. We are committed to sharing our findings, when we know more, you’ll know more.


myhellohub has been built to give each Hub community a place to communicate, with their peers and with other Hubs across the world. You can also see usage information on each Hub, location, how much data is used, popular apps and so much more.
