Abstract:
SwissAid Tanzania supports a community of small scale farmers in Masasi, Nanyumbu and Mtwara Rural districts by leveraging sustainable agriculture as means to reach enhanced livelihood. Key element of this program is to combine expert agronomist knowledge and technical backstopping, with traditional knowledge and cultivation methods with the aim to develop agro-ecological solutions adapted to the local context.
Approach:
WS Technology worked closely with SwissAid team, reviewed requirements and gathered additional information related to the project before embarking in software development for Macho Sauti Platform.
Solution:
WS Technology reviewed programming codes for Macho Sauti and further developed and tailored smartphone application and web platform for Macho Sauti program, including providing hosting solution for the platform. The application has allowed small scale farmers to interact with each other on the platform by sharing pictures, videos and comments about various agricultural topics. Currently, WS Technology Consulting continues to work with SwissAid by providing technical support and training when it is required.
