Support on Information Management and Mobile Data Collection strategy (Tdh)
Sep / 2014

CartONG has been helping Terre des hommes with their Information Management and data collection strategy since 2014, by evaluating tools, compiling studies and benchmarkings, counseling them on how to help the organisation augment its skills and developing training kits and communication documents for its staff, as well as helping with the technical recruitment of IM/MDC staff. 

Beyond this, a HQ hotline is available and two 2-day awreness raising sessions were organised in december 2016 and january 2017 to train Terre des hommes HQ Desks and Thematic specialists on what MDC could bring to their operations and also on knowing how to adapt a standard organisation form from one context to another (through XLS forms).

Blanket feeding and nutrition surveillance (UNHCR PHS)
Nov / 2013

Many programs have implemented blanket supplementary feeding activities  which often consist of several distributions per day. This is demanding in resources and difficult to ensure that every child  has equal access to the program. UNHCR and Partners are interested in piloting monitoring programs in a refugee camps to analyze how well the intended food distributions are reaching the target groups. In most operations the food distribution has been monitored on paper based lists which is time consuming and difficult to use for analysis. To overcome this difficulty and with CartONG technical support, monitoring systems based on Mobile technology will be piloted in one refugee camp to evaluate how well does programs do.

Whilst initially ODK was planned to be used as solution, doing case management through reading in data files which have to be replaced every week for updated data is not user friendly enough. XScanPet was chosen for the first pilots.
