Our work to support Young Pioneer Disaster Response in their deployment to the Federated States of Micronesia is at an end.
We started with a focus on Information Management and we moved on to produce some rather excellent maps.
Both of these sets of resources will really help YPDR be more efficient and effective on the ground in FSM.
It’s been fascinating work. Internet use across the FSM is very low and so you might imagine that there would not be that much information available online. But there is a huge wealth of information available, if you hunt around and use a little imagination and skill.
Joyce and Nick and I would like to thank every single one of the volunteers who worked so hard on this project. Standby Task Force is a friendly and task focused network and so it is no surprise that everyone on this deployment worked well together, supported each other and had a good time.
It’s no surprise but it’s worth mentioning. You are amazing people who choose to donate your time and skills to help people in need across the globe. This is unglamourous, undramatic and incredibly useful work.
Thank you to each and every one of you.
Coordinators are absolutely key to successful deployments and so all our coordinators must take credit for the great success of this deployment. Thank you Valeria Villan, Michal Bodnar, Liz Duffell and Steven Boyd.
Standby Task Force, once again, has proved what an amazing force digital humanitarians really are.
