Problem Description

It was created to address the problems of Internally Displaced Persons by helping them move back to their locations before displacement faster. It was also created so that groups and government agencies that deal with internally displaced persons will have adequate and quality data to work with, so they could send in interventions that the displaced persons actually need. With this solution, better advocacy campaigns can be made for IDPs to attract the right donors that can help them. Finally, it was created to checkmate people who siphon relief materials meant for IDPs for personal gain.
