The organization ASDENIC provides the citizens of northern Nicaragua with many resources to help them become more informed farmers and improve the quality of their lives. ASDENIC currently holds weekly meetings to distribute information such as water quality, weather conditions, and other important agricultural updates. However, technological limitations still prevent Nicaraguan farmers from getting updates from ASDENIC in real-time. We have partnered with Santa Clara University’s Frugal Innovation Hub and ASDENIC to create a mobile application to distribute necessary information to communities in rural Nicaragua in realtime.
Our mobile application is a platform for community leaders to share relevant information about water quality and for community members to stay updated and share any water incidents with the leaders. This application works to reduce the need for weekly town meetings to distribute this information.
