The Challenge

While textbooks are critical to enhancing the quality of learning, the provision of teaching and learning materials in developing countries is complex. Books are often lost at various stages of the delivery process—from the point of entry for imported textbooks, to central warehouses for nationally produced materials, to transportation across difficult or insecure routes, or even during final distribution to regional offices and classrooms. This only exacerbates the lack of textbooks and reading materials.

The Big Idea

OpenEMIS Logistics tracks the delivery of items to schools using a web interface, a mobile app and SMS technologies. It is an open source solution that is designed to work online and offline. It leverages other OpenEMIS technologies which manage data on schools, students and staff to achieve better data for better outcomes.
