To give the student councillors a platform to develop skills in event planning and embrace social responsibility, the Secondary Two and Three students are encouraged to organise themed blood drives in December every year. The events are fully youth-run, and is a progression from their involvement in other blood donation drive and the International Bazaar since 2014.

DataKind lent skills and expertise in data analytics to help improve efficiency of bloodmobile operations.

To improve the efficiency of community blood drives with better projections for blood collection at each site, the Blood Donor Recruitment Programme (BDRP) is keen to identify key factors influencing blood collection by tapping on the large amount of data accumulated since 2001. DataKind transformed the raw data into valuable insights and created a possible predictive model for accurate projections. This allowed for maximisation of resources allocated across all bloodbanks and blood drives, which enhances the donation experience for the blood donors.
