Harshita commented on The Giving Wall

Becky Crump , thank you for sharing your ideas and insights! The Giving Wall is a really innovative project and I appreciate your thoroughness with all of the resources (videos & attachments) you included. Echoing Isaac Jumba , I wonder if through the process of testing and researching about others who could be impacted by the platform, the project could focus in on a portion of the displacement journey or align more closely with an opportunity area?

Thank you for clarifying, Bahila Hijazi ! As a way to work towards both the immediate focus with children and potential expansion to include women, you may include both user groups in your research in order to better understand who you are designing for. The community research toolkit could be a helpful resource as you get started:

Good luck! Again, looking forward to following along with your progress on this :)

Gabriela Rivas , agreed with Isaac Jumba that this is an amazing idea! I think it's great that through this focus on connecting immigrant families with one another via a wearable device, you're also addressing the limits & issues associated with the existing use of ankle monitors.

With regards to testing, especially in the early stages, it might be helpful to focus on the overall experience of the service rather than the physical/digital product of the bracelet & its connected application. Here are a couple of other resources you might find helpful for this approach, as you continue to research & move towards testing:

Looking forward to following along with your progress on this project!
