Being on the ground with RISE in Kenya, I saw first hand the impact this innovation can have on the lives of children and young people. There is enormous potential for the tools that RISE can provide to key aid workers to create a flow on effect throughout the system of aid agencies providing critical services, and ultimately improve education and nutrition in these settings. It is also evident that RISE technology has the potential to be further developed to address and assist in other emergency situations.

As someone who worked in refugee services in Europe for several years, it would've been amazing to have a reliable digital method for keeping track of all the services each individual person has received. It would have made it easier to identify specific needs of each individual and ensure that they are connected with appropriate services faster and without unnecessary delay.
It wonderful to hear that RISE is making this possible for refugee children with their solution! Are there future plans to expand this to adult services as well?

As someone who has spent years in an organization that serves refugee children in Chad, it seems obvious to me that tracking humanitarian aid with mobile technology will increase accountability, transparency, and overall efficiency. It will slim down the cost and time of transmitting and digitizing handwritten records. With Africa's mobile revolution in full swing and penetrating even the most remote corners of the continent, it is high time such digital tools became available to help those with the greatest need.

In response to Why do you expect your solution to address the problem?

I visited a different camp, but it was heartbreaking to hear and see the children who didn't have access to the schooling nor the food they needed. More power to you to help solve this!

Thanks, @Andrew Tsang! We're optimistic that our innovation can help get children in refugee camps the education and nutrition they need.

Hello Team RISE, I'm a former refugee and I'm very excited to learn about this innovative solution! Indeed, refugee crisis remain to be the most challenging crisis of our modern day history. My question is, can you share more about how your platform can scale globally.

Sergio Medina

Hi. We are building a common core platform that meets the coordination needs of the most number of agencies operating in the most number of regions around the world. As we scale globally, it is imperative that we include feedback from refugees themselves, so we thank you for your comment.
