This report covers the research and implementation of a poverty elimination software platform. First, social service workers from multiple countries were determine how technology could aid antipoverty efforts. Based on those findings, we designed and developed a mobile application on behalf of a nonprofit named Fundación Paraguaya. The application that we developed helps social service workers track a family’s status and works both offline and online to support fieldwork in rural regions. Social workers are now using this tablet application in countries throughout the world, including Paraguay, Argentina, Colombia, Sierra Leone, and the United Kingdom. The project has since been open-sourced to attract contributors and to keep the platform on the cutting edge of poverty elimination.
