Project 5
Providing vocational training through remote learning

Region: Bangladesh, Myanmar

The solution will offer a cloud-based platform with digital tools that enables teachers to produce TVET e-learning, and students to get access to digital training courses. It will both be able to offer an immediate response, but also build a solution that lasts for many years after the pandemic, hereby strengthening the nexus between humanitarian response and sustainable development. It also comes in an offline version to be used in areas without Internet coverage.


Project 6
Insight Driven Response&Recovery

Region: Africa (regional)

This solution is focused on the problem of highly fragmented and decentralized data and systems across countries, agencies and donors. It is based on three modules: The first module is designed to deliver Outbreak Insights based on ‘Data4Development’.  The second module, Response & Recovery Action is designed to ensure compliant, effective and efficient interventions.  The third module, Impact Assessment focuses on compliance and lessons learnt, closing the feedback loop between action taken and impact on stakeholders.


Project 7
Covid-19 post-quarantine emotional support for indigenous children and adolescents in Guatemala

The solution is a combination of “no-tech and low-tech” and will produce podcasts, videos and educational games that are aligned with the national school curriculum. It will create an interactive platform based on existing solutions. That platform will host all the content as an interactive repository. It can be accessed freely by children and their parents even under low bandwidth conditions.
