CartONG is developing the mobile and analysis component of the FACET tool (a monitoring tool for Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) services in health care facilities) for Terre des hommes.
We are using Kobo/ODK for mobile data collection and a Power BI dashboard for visualisation of data and analysis.
Two 2-day trainings 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).
CartONG was appointed by Terre des Hommes (with a Protection consultant) to carry out a benchmarking on Case Management tools used in the Protection field. CartONG therefore undertook the evaluation of needs (with interviews with Tdh staff and with other NGOs), before testing out a certain number of tools,and working with Tdh on the strategy for the future on these subjects.
A remote support hotline for all Tdh delegations has been set up so that they can ask for remote support from CartONG on mobile data collection (encoding, choice of tools, devices...)
CartONG set up and has been managing since 2015 a community of Terre des hommes users on data collection and analysis, using Slack as a tool.
CartONG has been supporting nutrition surveys for Terre des Hommes-Suisse since 2013: CartONG helped TdH to switch to mobile data collection- during the first deployments our team coded the questionnaires, set up all the smartphones and trained the NGO’s local staff to use the tools. The last mission there was to train the Monitoring & Evaluation staff to conceive and encode forms as well as to analyse the data independently, with no in-country support.
CartONG deployed to Guinea twice in 2015 for Terre des hommes: once to help set up mobile data collection for the Protection team (follow up of Ebola orphans) and the WASH field (Knowledge, Attitudes, Practises surveys in health centers) and a second time for a regional training for the whole of West Africa on conceiving and encoding surveys, as well as analysing the results with different tools including Geographical Information Systems.
CartONG has been helping Terre des hommes with their Information Management and data collection strategy since 2015, by evaluating tools, counseling them on how to help the organisation augment its skills and developing training kits and communication documents for its staff. We have also done remote support for different delegations (Philippines, Mali, Guinea...)
