White Ribbon Alliance: Natural Language Processing for Non-Profit
The White Ribbon Alliance (WRA) is a Washington, DC-based charity with the goal of making sure every woman survives childbirth, worldwide. WRA is supported by a range of celebrities from Naomi Campbell to Sarah, Duchess of York.
The WRA ran a survey, called What Women Want, of over 1 million women asking them about their top requests for maternal and reproductive healthcare. The survey focused on eight countries: Mexico, Cameroon, Nigeria, India, Pakistan, Malawi, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania. The responses came back in text format (instead of categorical responses), in a variety of spellings and even languages, which made the survey difficult to analyse on a global scale.
