In Cambodia, an alarming number of children are orphaned or abandoned, left to grow up in residential care facilities, apart from anyone they’ve known. To ensure standards of care are met and children are less exposed to risks in residential care facilities, UNICEF supports the Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth to improve the inspection process of these institutions. The existing paper-based process is complicated and long. No real-time feedback loop is currently available to provide results on site to institutions. The Innovation Fund is investing in a new solution to simplify and convert the paper based inspection to a digital form by using a tablet and Open Data Kit software. The initial testing has already shown that the app can complete the equivalent of a 20-page form — a process that previously took multiple days — in just half a day. The digital inspection system was rolled out in five provinces in the first quarter of 2017.
