Field data collection can be challenging when connectivity and technology are accessible. Imagine collecting data for 29,000 children with a pen and some paper. This is ChildFund Uganda’s (CFU) reality. A process which took them over 31 days to complete for 1 child. CFU had to dedicate a considerable amount of resources and lacked the necessary data to make evidence-based, time-sensitive decisions, and monitor a child’s progress from when it entered their programming to when they exit as young adults.
Using a Human Centered approach, V2I and a team of skill-based volunteers worked alongside ChildFund Uganda to develop and test a tool that would hopefully help CFU to improve their impact by leveraging technology.
