Thank you for sharing this, Pavina!

At this year’s Leadership Course, @MegSatt and @suktidhital are leading a discussion on Data Collection and Analysis for Advocacy.

@leadership_course_2018_participants, please share with us the tools and methods you use for data collection.


Merci Madeline pour le partage.


In Moldova we operate the online legal Q&A platform with 200+ lawyers and 200,000+ users. A lot of data about people’s immediate and current legal needs is being accumulated on the platform, and now we are being asked by human rights organizations to implement changes to the platform and make this statistical data (by period, by legal issue, etc.) accessible to and usable by the public (NGOs, Government, people) for advocacy and policy making purposes. We will be doing that in the coming months with Open Societies foundation in Moldova.


FLAGSTAFF PARALEGAL ADVICE CENTRE Collect data through door to door campaign whereby the organization visit families with form designed for data collection.We also do it through opened cases of people visiting the organization and assisted to resolve the specific case.

Hello everyone.

As I mentioned during this morning’s data collection and analysis for advocacy session, in Nicaragua (though our partner organization SIMAS: we are digitizing all of our training manuals, tools, presentations, videos etc. designed to educate about water laws, water management, leadership, advocacy for water rights and also about the use of technology for advocacy, and placing them on the RACHEL (Remote Area Community Hotspot for Education and Learning). This digitization process shrinks the size of the resources so that they can be placed on the RACHEL (which is basically a giant hard-drive that sends out a wifi signal), so that participants can connect to the RACHEL with their smart phones and tablets during the training sessions that take place in remote locations (without cell signal and/or wifi - or that have weak signals or wifi), The digitization process also makes the resources open-source, so that they can be accessed and used by others who purchase RACHELs and are doing education outreach in all sorts of subjects (education, health, law, agriculture, technology…you name it!). For the 53% of people around the world without an internet connection, RACHEL is a valuable tool that connects offline learners to the best free educational resources. RACHEL is rugged, lightweight, and designed to travel anywhere. RACHEL is available from an organization called World Possible , based in California, but that has chapters in Guatemala, Kenya, Ghana, Sierra Leone and Tanzania and is also being used in the US Justice System (for education programs for inmates).

If anyone would like more information about RACHEL or our project in Nicaragua, don’t hesitate to get in touch.


Hello Lorraine, Thank you very much for the interesting article. Does RACHEL project help to the residents of the remote communities with providing legal advice? I am wondering how this would work for Canada if possible. Thank you very much for your time, Alexandar
