Syrian Arab Red Crescent held a training workshop under the title “Mobile based Data Collection Workshop using ODK” on 25- 28/11/2018. The first of its kind workshop was conducted by SARC’s Information Management Department and attended by many departments of SARC (central operation, medical services, water and construction, livelihood, information technologies, humanitarian support project, psychosocial support, planning-monitoring-evaluation and learning.) In addition, it was participated by trainers from SARC, ICRC and IFRC.
The experiences and skills gained during the training will be invested in using mobile sets technologies for data collection and defining needs in order to measure the impact of the provided services on the beneficiaries. Consequently, this will empower SARC to design a better response that ensures a stronger focus on meeting the needs of the most vulnerable people in the best way possible.
