Mitchell commented on Information App Center

Hello, I am a PhD candidate from Toronto, Canada who had the opportunity to recently conduct research with refugees in Kampala, Uganda from June-July 2019. To me, this is a fantastic idea, especially given that one of the prominent themes of the research with refugees in Uganda was the need to have quick and accessible services. As mentioned in the description above, due to the continuing influx of refugees into Uganda, both rural and urban refugees find it difficult to access services in a timely and efficient manner. This app will be one way to provide needed support to individuals experiencing displacement in Uganda who may also not have the financial resources to travel to specific locations for services. Hence this app will be able to communicate with refugees seeking direction, especially during challenging times of relocation. Thanks for sharing this idea!
