Welcome to BridgeBuilder Challenge 2019 Archiebold Manasseh ! The challenge's idea phase will be closing on 17th August. Before its expired could you clarify if you are working directly with the people on the move or displaced people in your target areas ? Could you clarify what are the results of the project so far in your pilot phase? What are the insights so far? Also you can create a possible user and share with us
i.e. "journey map of displaced children from Kibera " which is very important to integrate into this platform as you progress in the challenge!

I would suggest also to have a look at our challenge brief: and our challenge evaluation criteria again for checking:

You could refer to the community research toolkit here: and the prototyping toolkit here as a guide to help you visualize the idea.

last curious if Isaac Jumba  do you have any thoughts about the topic or region?
