Problems faced by UNICEF LACRO
UNICEF LACRO wanted to develop a digital platform to advance MHPSS services in Latin America and the Caribbean region. Their objective was to apply a "learning by doing" approach to children, adolescents, and their caregivers while using local knowledge and on-the-ground implementation experience across LACRO.
They want to develop packages of MHPSS digital public goods and standardized measurement tools to strengthen responses to the mental health needs of children and adolescents in the region. But they were facing problems in developing the UCMS Platform.
So UNICEF LACRO was looking for a consultant to help create and promote a thematic library of open-access MHPSS digital public goods for children and adolescents. It includes the packages of content, software, and technical guidance developed by and for the LACR context.
Finally, they found Riseup Labs, who is specialized in software development, to assist the consultant in all aspects regarding the analysis, design, development, testing, and deployment of the following:
- Web System
- Front end Development
- Back end Development
- CMS Database Development
Moreover, Riseup Labs has already developed several Mobile apps, Web Systems, eLearning Platforms, etc., for UNICEF. So they trusted Riseup Labs to develop the UCMS Platform for MHPSS also.
