No access to tech

  • I hear about Loop from my friends at the market.

  • I go to the phone agent on the street and help my Mum to feedback about her special needs as a blind person.

Real representation

  • I hear about Loop at the women's rights centre. They used the Loop tool to talk about my rights on line.
  • I can go on the platform and report something anonymously. I can share my contact information. I can ask for it not to go on the platform.
  • They can gather trends on abuse, and refer it on to the right people safely.

How would it feel for a Donor?

Individual donor

  • I find trending information on the platform I use to make donations (eg: Give Directly).
  • I look into communication threads related to what I am funding to better understand the reality.

Institutional donor

  • When I am reviewing a proposal I can research the organisations engagement and existing programs.

  • I use the interactive map to see who is doing what where.

How would it feel for

a researcher
a technical expert
a think tank
an advocacy group?

Researcher

  • I am interested in best practice in Micro Economic Initiatives.
  • I request data analysis from Loop to identify where there is positive feedback and where there are more concerns.
  • This helps focus the design of my indepth research to inform best practice.

Advocacy

  • I am a Civil Society organisation and see the EU gave a large grant to WHO for community awareness raising of polio vaccinations.
  • I see on Loop that local organisations tend to get more positive feedback than INGOs in this area.
  • I use this data in my advocacy.

Health expert

  • I see diarrhoea and vomiting trending on Loop in a Cholera prone area.
  • I dig deeper to see if it is an early warning sign.
