UNICEF - INNOVATION to PROTECT CHILDREN in EMERGENCIES

In any emergency, whether a natural disaster or an armed conflict, the commotion of survival and flight leads to the separation of children from their caregivers, leaving children vulnerable to violence, economic and sexual exploitation, and trafficking.

Primero is an open source mobile application and data storage system that seeks to expedite this process by helping humanitarian workers collect, sort and share information about unaccompanied and separated children in emergency situations so they can be registered for care services and reunited with their families.

I helped open source the application and compiled the user guides into books. I also built the developer site.
