FirstLife for Congo

Published on Dec 13, 2020 by Guido Boella


The association Equiliberi Onlus in Turin activated a collaboration with FirstLife to support an international cooperation project in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The objective is mapping and analysing data related social and health services for different kinds of public spaces as schools and hospitals, to evaluate if policies, interventions and projects over time guarantee the achievement or maintenance of the sanitary parameters defined by UNHCR (so called standard WASH). The project involves local institutions and organizations in different sectors.

Use-cases with FirstLife will start in the city of Lubumbashi to geocalize services and identify which standards they currently have. With Firstlife will possible manage different cases and variables based on the type of the project and thematic area.

In this way, it will be possible to easily collect and analyze data coming from questionnaires and surveys filled by the managers of the local structures, then assess whether or not the places have reached the standard reference parameters.

FirsLife could be a useful tool to support international cooperation in the design of life-cycle projects, from monitoring and evaluation of the impacts to the communication of the results to citizens.
