We're raising money to help fight dengue. Dengue is killing 5 people daily in the Philippines and we developed a way to detect mosquito hotspots and predict dengue using data! We need $25k to get our project adopted by NASA and health agencies. Would you consider making a donation to assist us in our fundraising?


We are a group of researchers in the Philippines who recently won the NASA International Space Apps Challenge Global Award for Best Use of Data.

Our solution uses weather, Google, and satellite data to predict dengue cases and pinpoint mosquito breeding stagnant water spots.


We are raising funds to help get our project off the ground, and although we were recognized as a global winner, what we hope for is a chance to also meet the NASA organizers in person, show them our plans and work so far and get serious support to put this solution in place.


We were successful in putting a prototype in place. We are now looking to raise at least $25,000.00 as seed to start operating:

  • Researchers and volunteers ($9,000) - to have people to complete the data gathering and modeling.
  • Tools and subscriptions ($4,000) - to host our solution and also manage the data feeds
  • Travel to NASA ($12,000) - to meet the organizers and rally support for the project.

Dengue is a deadly disease and every day 5 people are dying and 1,000 new cases are emerging as of 2019. Even a $1 donation moves our mission further to stop and prevent this deadly disease. Over the long run, our project can also help with other mosquito borne diseases such as Malaria, ZIka, and Chikungunya.

Please help us fight dengue and get support from NASA.

We were already feeling fortunate to have made the local cut but the global win is blowing our minds. We feel that the NASA recognition is a validation that our mission is a worthy one and can really help make an impact on public health and reducing deaths from dengue. . . . .
