Tracy commented on Life Saving Education for girls in Emergencies

Thank you so much Ashley and the OpenIdeo Team and MIKTA for featuring our idea :) Indeed my team and I are thrilled to be part of this wonderful challenge. It has pushed us to be more innovative and to think outside of the box. This platform has presented so many opportunities for us and for that we are grateful. PNG is a developing country that has quite a few challenges particularly as it is prone to disasters and has one of the highest rates of GBV in the world. The link between disasters and the rise in GBV is backed by evidence. Young girls are particularly vulnerable. If we can pilot a solution that can both be a response mechanism for disasters and GBV as well as a real time data processing and analyzing center, this will greatly benefit not only the school girls in Milne Bay province who are the most vulnerable but boys as well who are also vulnerable in disaster settings. To have made it this far in the challenge is a success itself and we look forward to the outcome whatever it may be. Wishing all teams the very best.

Thank you so much Ashley and the OpenIdeo team for featuring our idea :) Indeed my team and I are thrilled to be part of this wonderful platform that has opened up our minds and challenged ourselves to think outside of the box to come up with solutions that are so critically needed by different communities in PNG. GBV is a huge problem in PNG and Milne Bay province is no exception. As evidence shows, rates of GBV have gone up in humanitarian settings. This innovation would be a first to link humanitarian response as well as GBV response to report cases in real time as well as collect and analyse data through the 'Rapid Pro' mobile phone open platform. Thank you so much OpenIdeo and MIKTA for giving us this opportunity to bring this idea one more step closer to fruition.

Dear David,

Thank you so much for your support and confidence in my team's idea, we are truly humbled. Your Bendigo Inventor Awards sounds fantastic, we will definitely submit our idea. The more the support the better! It is wonderful knowing there are like minded people and organisations out there who strive to find solutions for the disadvantaged. I will definitely reach out to you if I have any queries.
Thank you so much once again.
