Digital Meets Impact

The Family Strengthening Program we observed and documented in the Democratic Republic of Congo wins the Digital4Development award.

Increasing the impact of their work is a major goal of any development NGO. In order to collect relevant data and make better use of it to improve the quality of their intervention, the NGO SOS Children’s Villages has developed a digital tool called Program Database 2 – PDB2. Because “to measure is to know”, as the NGO emphasizes, and thus, as we at Visual Exchange advocate, to have the possibility to act consciously, with a better understanding of one’s environment and the real needs of the stakeholders and, above all, to identify where the action will be a real lever of strengthening and development for the beneficiaries, and thus for the project as a whole.

This digital aspect of the program has been nominated for the Digital4Development award, a biennial initiative of the AfricaMuseum with the support of the Directorate General for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid (DGD). The official award ceremony was held at the Royal Museum for Central Africa on November 24, 2022.
