CFU staff also lack a case management system that would enable them to track children’s progress throughout their programs.
Venture 2 Impact engaged its community of skilled-volunteers and ran a two day hackathon to build and prototype a real-time, case-based data management system.

This included 2 designers to design the system, 1 product manager to lead the team, and 6 programmers to build the system. After development is finished, training on the system will be provided to the Childfund Uganda staff on the data collection tool and case management system.
