Hello! I'm Andrea.
I was born in Italy, but over the past decade I’ve been living in several countries, including the amazing Sierra Leone ! I’m currently based in Washington DC, but often travel for work (and leisure ).
I started using ODK in early 2013 to monitor a public works project in rural communities.
I was immediately fascinated by both the simplicity and effectiveness of the toolkit, and started experimenting with it. Using ODK Collect we were able to capture details and photos of thousands of beneficiaries, increasing transparency and enhancing monitoring in the project. Since then, I’ve helped several major international organizations and NGOs in improving their data collection and service delivery systems, often using the ODK toolkit.
I really value the support the community provides in the forum and I’m excited to join the discussions and share experiences.
Outside of data collection, I like to travel, meet people and learn new things.
