At PI we are particularity excited at the news that Humanitarian Innovation Fund (HIF) accepted our first small grant application, as this means that we can now launch the first phase of our three years long project to develop PI’s technology.
Thanks to HIF we can now start working at the first phase of the development of PI’s technology whose objective is to identify PI’s functional requirements in close collaboration with a series of national and international humanitarian and human rights NGOs. Practically, this means that in the coming weeks we will resume the contacts we already initiated with the Liberia Peacebuilding Office, Amnesty International USA, the International Committee of the Red Cross, the International Federation of the Red Cross and UN OCHA, and approach a few others to set up a first round of meetings. We shall subsequently invite those interested to attend development workshops where together we shall write a series of user stories that will form the backbone of PI’s functional requirement analysis. Wish us success in our endeavors!
