Challenge

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about new challenges, particularly exacerbating the need for access to efficient technology. To adhere to social distancing and working to keep people safe, the DCC office has had to adapt to an online approach, but with access to only one outdated computer, this has proved strenuous and inefficient when conducting their important work. Crucial events such as meetings, seminars and training, which were previously undertaken physically are now online.

Solution

We aim to raise 1,200 to purchase 3 laptops for the DCC office, this in turn allows this project to ensure the brilliant, innovative, and supportive work conducted by the DCC office to continue and flourish efficiently. New laptops will allow the DCC staff to communicate with ease and safety with other support partners including government officials.

Long-Term Impact

Although the Covid-19 pandemic has sparked the necessity for efficient online access, providing new laptops to the DCC office opens the door to new forward thinking approaches to training and supportive measures. The laptops will allow for the DCC staff and field officers to move away from paper records and utilise the laptops for important data sharing and collection, real time monitoring of activities, ease in measuring impact and reporting to partners meaning better support for the community.
