It takes a village

CWIN is a local nonprofit that operates the largest child trafficking hotline in Nepal. The organization is a crucial tool for residents to help end human trafficking and confront other human rights issues.

With unreliable wifi and spotty data connection, the nonprofit struggled with connecting all of their call data to one system. Inspired by how CIWN is keeping children from being trafficked, the volunteers of the May and July 2016 expeditions focused on this barrier for their hackathon project.  Applying their tech skills, the volunteers assisted CWIN employees to move their data from Google Drive to KoboToolbox, an open source software with online and offline capabilities. The data transition now gives CIWN the ability to effectively gather data to better understand how to take action.

Currently, CWIN is in the process of orienting its data collection team and providing with tablets.
