During projects implementation, NGOs and international organizations need to monitor activities through specific sets of indicators.
It is essential to be able to record data easily and rapidly, possibly directly from the field and real-time.
That’s why Gnucoop develops a series of services (web platforms and mobile apps) that go beyond the basic data collection and that take into account the challenges normally faced by organizations while monitoring their projects.
Projects about disaster preparedness or response are complex as many indicators and variables need to be monitored at the same time and they may concern very different sectors.
The 3W applications provide decision makers and project managers with an easy to use system to keep control over current activities and plan future ones in a specific region.
Gnucoop developed a 3W web platform to help the organisation monitoring DRR (Disaster Risk Reduction) activities in 4 countries.
According to WHO, Mobile Health (mHealth) is the “Provision of health services and information via mobile and wireless technologies. mHealth includes mobile phones, Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), tablets, mobile applications and wireless medical devices“.
mHealth has the potential to address and overcome challenges such as:
disparities in access to health services, inadequacies of the health infrastructure and
shortage of human resources for health.
Gnucoop started in 2006 as a small group of free-lance IT professionals with the idea that free software and technologies have great economical and technical advantages and they can provide very useful tools to achieve Companies/Institutions/NGOs/Research Institutes/Aid Agencies’ objectives.
In 2012, we officially founded the Gnucoop Soc. Coop., in order to institutionalize our position and provide a more comprehensive and recognized expertise and support to our clients, particularly to non profit institutions…
We develop customized applications that improve portability and accessibility of information.
Conflicts, violence, human rights violations but also natural disasters are forcing millions of people to leave their homes and to flee from destruction and persecution. The majority of refugees and IDPs live in the developing world, which means that they find refuge in countries and among people who already struggle with poverty and hardship. Their survival usually depends on the availability of assistance which is provided by local communities and international organisations.
There are over 59.5 million people in dire need of protection and assistance as a consequence of forced displacement. They include refugees , internally displaced persons (IDPs) and asylum-seekers . Globally, over 38.2 million people are internally displaced (source: IDMC 2015 Global Overview), compared to more than 19.5 million refugees and 1.2 million asylum-seekers (source: UNHCR Global Trends 2014).
